A selection of spring flowers in my garden for today’s Flower of the Day 🙂
Easter daffodils for today’s Flower of the Day 🙂
Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge for this week has yellow or purple as a theme, so here are a few soggy daffodils in my garden this morning 🙂
We’ve had a pretty cold April, and so far May’s not exactly hitting the high temperatures either – here in the North of Scotland we have potential snow forecast for midweek! However the chilly weather seems to have the spring daffodils hanging on for longer than usual, so that’s nice to see 🙂
Whatever is going on in life to unsettle me, being close to nature always helps smooth my rough edges and soothe my ruffled feathers.
Whether sitting in my garden like today or out and about walking in the beautiful landscape surroundings where I live, I’ve always enjoyed that feeling of being at one with the environment, smelling the fresh air and flowers, listening to the sounds of wildlife and weather, looking at the natural world unfolding around me, welcoming me, enveloping me.
Particularly over this last year with ongoing Covid restrictions keeping us tied to home and painfully apart from those we love, spending precious time in nature has absolutely been one of my greatest pleasures 🙂
For this year’s April Blogging from A-Z Challenge I’m aiming for an alphabetical exploration of my personal thoughts and feelings on the continuing Covid 19 pandemic one year on, using a mix of poetry, pics and ponderings…
The river level was running quite high yesterday to the extent that these clumps of daffodils, usually growing high and dry along the upper edges of the riverbank, were in imminent danger of getting their feet wet! 🙂
Trying to capture garden daffodils blowing around in the spring breeze on a sunny Sunday morning isn’t the easiest of tasks – they just wouldn’t stay still in shot! 🙂
