Pretty green

Today I saw tiny lime green shoots pushing out of the leafy, mouldy, muddy earth high up in the bluebell woods and I smiled at their promise.
The highly scented smell of hyacinth is wafting out from the kitchen.....


  1. The thought of spring makes me smile, too! Your mosaic is so pretty...I love hyacinths!

    Hope you are having a good week, Sarah!


  2. Such a gorgeous colour. xxx

  3. Can't wait for the Spring..but look out,I think another cold snap is on the way!
    I hope you get your trip to Lewes and breakfast at Bill's.I always have the scrambled eggs and smoked salmon...yum! :0)

  4. Yep it's got to be on it's way now!
    Love the little seat you have by the window, just perfect for tea drinking and window gazing I bet.
    Hope all is well with you.

  5. Lovely! The Spring flowers are so gorgeous, aren't they and seem so full of promise. Hurry up Spring!

  6. ....deep sigh. I am so looking forward to a little bit of Spring - why does Winter feel like the longest drawn out season?.

    ps. only enough for another wee one I'm afraid - I was so hoping for a Von Trapp moment. N xxx

  7. Think I can smell the hyacinths from here. (Melbourne!)

  8. hi
    the springflowers they are wonderful.mmmh i can smell the hyacinths.
    have a wonderful day,

  9. As much as I love our Suffolk countryside, views like yours make me long for a few more hills!

    I couldn't resist some hyacinth bulbs today as I thought it was about time my home had that smell once more.

    Love your bench in your bay window, is it a Scumble Goose one? And what scent of east of india candle do you have on your table? I love their candles but cannot seem to get my fave smells anywhere at the moment.


    PS: Sorry about the temptation post and the resulting petrol I cost you! ;)

  10. Ahhhhh,yes! That telltale sight of brilliant green! What's better?

    Sending love across the miles and lanes,

    One of my all time favourites.

    My sister dug up some of my hyacinth bulbs while she was helping my weed the other day, I hope she replaced them the right way up.
