Sunny Days

We're used to unpredictable weather here in England but I'm getting used to all this March sun I can tell you!

I think my garden is too.


I've been busy painting an old flowerpot,


giving it a new lease of life.

My knitting project's coming along nicely too, nearly finished.

For those of you who don't know, I'm having a giveaway (see my previous post below). I'm going to be in Paris for a few days soon so I'll post the winner when I get back and no doubt lots of photos of my trip too. :)
Have a lovely weekend, see you when I get back.  Lets hope the weather stays like this for a few days more! :)

Oh! Can I go to Paris with you? I have always wanted to see Paris. I actually would love to see England too....I have only passed through on a quick day tour on our way to Israel. Your photos are lovely as is your place to knit! We have had wonderful temperatures and an early Spring too here in Kansas in the US. Last night was our first big storm...lots of hail and wind and lightening. We are called "tornado alley" because in midwestern states in the spring will commonly get severe weather with tornadoes...just like the Wizard of OZ. : )

Have fun in Paris!

Hi Lisa, wow tornadoes! That must be pretty scary sometimes. It's lovely having an early spring isn't it? I hope you get to see this part of the world one day! :)

Hi Jess,
Primroses seem to be growing like mad this year with all this warm weather we are having. Love the pink flowers in your first photo. They are positively glowing in the sun! ;-)
I could get used to this warmer climate too!
Lovely to see that you have been busy painting pots and knitting. Also catching a few rays while you are working is a good idea.
Have a great weekend and fun in Paris.
Jo. xx

P.S. I replied to your comment on my blog! x;-)

Bon voyage! I'm longing for Paris - I've been there once many years ago! I hope you'll have sunny weather and you'll catch beautiful moments from your stay there!
Your spring garden looks like a little Heaven!:)

My late FIL used to decorate lots of things for us. Many years ago I asked him for a "Jonathan Livingston Seagull" themed plant pot. Too lovely to put outside so lives in our bathroom.
Have a lovely weekend and enjoy your Paris trip.

Thanks Jo, you're right about the primroses, I've noticed they look particularly pretty this year.

Thankyou Rossichka, I've been a couple of times and it's been sunny so I have been lucky so far!

Thanks Trish but...snow? NO! ;o)

Thanks Carol, your plant pot sounds lovely. Do you know I can't resist painting blank things!

Thanks Tammie, you're very welcome. :)

Hi Els, I can do without cold air back again, I hope it doesn't get too cold!

Thankyou Robin, I shall. :)
