Even on the greyest of days

.. there is hope! Just this morning despite the cold I went out into my garden to clear some of the zillion fallen leaves. As I gradually cleared some of the flower beds to my delight I uncovered many little shoots of spring bulbs starting to venture out! It never fails to give me a thrill, Spring is on the way! Despite it just starting to snow a little again! Come back on Wednesday when I will be taking part in Simple Things. It is being run by the lovely Christina who will also be donating $1 for each person joining in to Doctors without Borders to help Haiti. In the meantime enjoy these little images of hope! Hugs, Catherine x

Ooh am all excited because your post came directly into my inbox - have been doing some technical tweaking!

Lovely to see the green shoots... I love it when the earth starts to come alive. Such resilience. Such hope. Spring just around the corner.

Love Charlotte

I love to see bulbs coming through. It makes me realise that spring is only just around the corner. I will check back on Wednesday to take part in Simple Things.

What pleasure these green shoots gives to my winter-sore eyes, Catherine... so lovely, so inspiring! I've known Christina a while now, and I'll be joining in on Wednesday's even too. See you there! :o) Happy Week, my friend ((HUGS))

Oh what a fabulous re-awakening, Catherine! I'm pretty tired of cold and winter, this morning it was snowing again :(( My bulbs are not visible yet.
