Some sunshine please........

Oh these dreich days are really getting the better of me............the lurgy has been hanging around in our house for weeks now, little star was ill for about 3 weeks, she then had a small spell of jollyness and is now full of coughs and cold again :(

Last week I coughed like I smoked 40 a day and then eventually took to my bed at the weekend, full of the cold and feeling very flu like.........bleurgh.




So, in an attempt to try and cheer myself up, I decided to take a look through some lovely Spring pictures taken in the garden either last Spring or the Spring before that (I'm thinking prob the Spring before that as Stella took up all of my time last year!)



Where is the sunshine of February? The lovely sunny days promising us that Spring is just around the corner? There is nothing nicer than being able to take a cuppa out to the back door and sit and enjoy a bit of early Spring sunshine on your face, it warms the soul out of hibernation, don't you think?



Oh how I long for the yellow burst of little celandine flowers along the bank of the burn, and that sparkle of sunlight off the water as it trickles down to the big burn...........

Fingers crossed Mr. Sunshine arrives back from his long holiday fairly soon. In the meantime, I hope this little burst of Spring has cheered you up, it's certainly given me hope!

Oh poor you Lisa, sounds as though we have had the same thing. Hope it passes by soon for you all. I agree with you about the sun too. Where is it? x

Me too, thank you for posting these. Everything seems so grey at the moment, doesn't it? Nevermind, March is very near.

Your photos of spring have certainly cheered me up...it's been such a depressing day today. Sorry you've had the lurgy...Les has had it too, and lots of friends. Hope you're feeling much better now.

You are right where is the sunshine, I am looking out of my window this evening and the mist is rolling in, and we are promised more rain tomorrow. Hope you feel better soon, and the photos especially the celandine by the water was lovely, truly spring like.

Apparently, we had a bit of sun yesterday though I must have missed it. Hope you are all feeling better up the road. Give me a wave if you are passing, the street is very quiet these days.

Looks like we're finally getting the sunshine you asked for! It's lovely to feel some warmth in the air. Hope you're feeling more cheerful.

Nothing says "springtime" quite like a spray of yellow flowers ;)
