It's almost SPRING....

Today was rose pruning day in my garden.

 I pruned the roses and the shrubs. The sun was shining warmly , the sky was a perfect blue and I had 3 awesome garden assistants to help me:

 Big Bear- aka the bodyguard- he lies in the shade and keeps watch over my every move...

 Bonny Bon-Bon  aka the hosepipe inspector - who makes sure that the water is coming out of the hose while we water the garden and ends up soaking wet and looking like a drowned rat....

And Shadow - aka the Bug-catcher.  She runs around madly chasing every little flying insect in the yard. She stops occasionally to "eat" a flower-  well you know they   look so good and they smell so good..... just a pity they dont taste so good! 


While we were busy gardening, the three of us, I noticed some definite signs of spring....

Little snowdrops peeping thru the foliage...

Sweet violets flowering gently under the apricot tree....

The first elegant Arum lily .....

An oh-so-fragrant purple Iris .....

And of course the Jasmine... OH the Jasmine.... my favorite favorite!  It is blooming prolifically this year because there has not been much frost (saying that with fingers crossed).

Isnt a garden the most wonderful of blessings......

Wishing you all a wonderful sunny weekend.
much love
Angella.


HAPPINESS is a form of COURAGE.....
