I normally love each season – the brighter days and new life brusting forth of Spring, the warmer, balmy days and longer evenings of summer, the changing colours of Autumn and the crisp days and cosy nights in front of the fire of winter, but I am positively longing for Spring to be Sprung. Last week, I though hurrah, at last it has arrived. We had some lovely sunny days and there was actually warmth in sun. This was short lived as from Friday evening until Sunday morning it rained and rained and turned icy again with frequent wintry showers. We live by and work by the river and the continuous rain has played havoc with the water levels of the river. It is very high and covering our access road to our house, so we with wellies on, and the dogs without wellies have to wade through it to reach drier ground. This is the same for the boatyard where the access road and most of the boatyard is under water. I hate walking in wellies, it makes my legs ache but imagine being Tillie and Raven wading through icy water, poor doggies!! Apparently next week, Spring is supposed to arrive….I can’t wait!!
So to cheer myself up and to remind me of the distance memories of summer I found this pattern for sunflowers here and made a few.
Sunday was Mothers Day and Sam made my day by sending these beautiful flowers.
I made batches of cupcakes for my Mother and Mother in Law.
