Spring's The Thing

Oh, isn't Spring wonderful? What's your favourite Spring thing?

Today, I have several...




Glorious Cowslips (also known as Fairy Cups) Lots of very interesting folklore attached to this now rare flower. How about this one, if a woman washes her face in milk which has been infused with Cowslips, then her beloved will be drawn closer to her....worth a try?





A unicorn in the making?



Big skies..



And the last hurrah of the cherry blossom.

Delighted to have found your blog - it's full of lovely things!

My favourite Spring things are blossom on the trees, fresh garden peas in pods and that glorious hopeful feeling you get when you leave your house in the morning and the sky is blue, the sun is shining and summer is peeking round the corner :)

Natalie - I've been cruising round your blog on and off all day, I love it!

Erin - you girls at Design Crisis are horsey-crazy aren't you? Rightly so, I wonder if we can paint him gold and have him hang around the living room?

Meg - Such a lovely thing to say!

Talking of peas, we planted a load at our shared piece of borrowed utopia this very week, so fresh garden peas are in the pipeline for us...

Oo I adore cowslips so much,they remind me of the Little Grey Rabbit stories and all those wonderful country children's books. I was driving through the countryside last week and had conniptions seeing all the cowslips growing by the roadside. I have to do with planting them in my windowboxes as I'm a girl in the city!
