Well, who would have thought it? I have just realized, by pure chance, that this will be my 600th blog post. I just can't believe that really. It seems like only yesterday that Eleanor was my guest blogger for my 500th post.
As I wasn't aware that this milestone was coming up, I'm afraid I haven't got anyone special to join me today. Although, to be honest, I do! I have all my dear bloggy friends, who have been such an encouragement and support to me over these past few years.
I am an Aries lady. We are very well known for starting something off, but we very rarely finish, and just want to be up and on to more exciting things. So, in actual fact. I am feeling rather pleased with myself that I have stuck at my blog and not given up. That certainly is mostly down to the lovely comments that you always leave me. Here are some lovely tulips for you all to share :)
I thought I would also share some early signs of Spring with you, for we have surely waited long enough. These photos were taken in the garden yesterday. This time last week, the garden was still looking quite sad, but just look what a spell of warm, sunny weather has done. It's as if all the little plants are now vying with each other to put on the best show. I'm sure that they are pleased to feel the warmth of the sun as well. I look after Ruby on Thursdays, and we actually spent all day outside. It was wonderful. She absolutely loves it out in the caravan. I am so pleased that I bought it (completely on a whim!). It just makes me feel happy, as soon as I step inside it.
Here's Miss Ruby, in the greenhouse, pretending that she is in her fairy castle. I tell you, she has such a good imagination!
I don't know whether or not you have heard of Hot Cross Buns in your little corner of the world, but I just love them, especially served warm with Devon Clotted Cream. (Yum!). They used to be for sale only at Easter time, but in recent years, you can virtually buy them all year round. Anyway, I was in the supermarket this morning, and look what I found !
Double chocolate Hot Cross Buns! I ask you - is nothing sacred?! I did hover over them for a few minutes , but, in the end, I decided to resist. No one loves chocolate more than I do, but this just didn't seem quite right somehow :(
So then little bloggies, the weekend is almost upon us once again. Whatever you're doing, I hope that you will manage to have some fun and relaxation. Me? If this glorious weather holds up, you will find me working in the garden. Pop in for a cup of tea - I would love to see you!
