It's warmed up a bit

Yesterday the weather went mad and our thermometer registered a surprising 21C! What a difference from a few days ago. The buds are bursting

and it looks as though spring really is here now. The winter pansies have finally blossomed

This little chap spent ages sitting in the sun on Friday afternoon He is sitting on a brick at the base of the weather station. We have not had many birds recently but this seems normal for April it was the same same year. I think they are busy building homes.

We have spent time watching Ospreys
via the web which is quite exciting and owls
although the owls are in California so you have to time it right, evening in UK is best or through the night if you are an insomniac.

The sewing is going slowly I cheated and hung the Easter hanging incomplete, so I now have to embellish ready for next year.

The fish are being stitched around at the moment

and jumper number four needs sleeves.

The cross stitch is looking more like an owl but its very slow going so no more pictures yet.

I have not mentioned the allotment for a while. Everything got held up by the cold winter but John is back down there now getting ready for some planting.

Thanks for dropping by; leave a message so I know you came.

Thank you for the springy pictures. It was warm for a few days last week, but we're back to cold, dreary clouds. You give me hope! :o)

Isn't it lovely to see the spring flowers. It really lifts ones spirits. Your patchwork is looking beautiful.

It has been lovely hasn't it but today was rather dull and chilly here.

It has been an early Spring here as well. Yesterday, as we were cleaning out the broken branches around our property, we did see one lone pansy peeking though.

Nice work!

Oh wow...pansies!!!! We've only had daffodils, tulips and crocuses up right now. I can't wait until it gets a little warmer.

You've been a busy woman! I still love the Easter banner. Another cute sweater too :o)
