February 22nd, a Wonderful Spring Day!

IMG_2609

I think Punxsutawney Phil should do the weather forecast every day, not just once a year, because here in Derbyshire we are having a wonderful Spring Day.  In fact parts of the UK are supposed to be warmer than Egypt today!!!!  I know everyone will say it is global warming but I am really appreciating it today.  Even Treacle has been enjoying having the door open to our garden and running in and out. 

I took the opportunity to take my camera out into the garden and here are some pictures.

This was a planter that a very good friend gave me last year after my hip operation and as you can see the mini daffodils have come out.

The Primulas have come out over the last two days of sunshine.

Last Autumn I planted a lot of snowdrops as they seem to like the soil but only a few have appeared and I think the wretched squirrel has been digging them up and eating them!!!!

I made a quick trip to the garden centre last week and bought a new double-flowered Primula and a couple of other plants which were on sale.

The Crocus are out and more Primulas.

The vegetables are still doing well.

The garden still looks very tidy after its Winter snooze.

We left the wooden Reindeer out from Christmas and Treacle has made friends with it!!!

She managed to find one of her tennis balls to play with.

“Isn’t it a great day, I can be outside Mom?”

The sun beginning to sink early but it is only February 22nd!

I got my errands all done and a few other ones too and tomorrow I am going over to Nottingham to do some shopping and get a few bits.  I haven’t been over since Christmas so it will be nice to have a look round and the weather is supposed to be like today so it will be great.

I hope whatever you are up to this weekend you have a lovely time.

Hugs, Susie xx

    Oh, your flowers are so beautiful!! I sure wish spring would hurry up and arrive here…I had to shovel snow again this morning and it was 16 (about -9C) whilst I was out there in my slippers, sweatpants and sweatshirt! I moved FAST!! That was over 30 minutes ago and my feet are still cold! So glad Treacle found a ball the wintered in the garden!!
