The magic of the sun....

We had a gloriously sunny day here yesterday and the warmth worked magic around our garden so I thought I would just do a quick show and tell.....

The blooms on our flowering cherry tree opened out.  They were barely buds in the morning!

The willow tree in full bloom now and already dropping some of it's flowers.

The blooms on the Magnolia have started to open. [you can bet we will now have a hard frost that will turn these brown].

Dafodils have popped up all over the garden and are now wearing their best dresses and really enjoying the morning sun.

Ok so I've cheated a little here.  These aren't home grown.  We bought these from the garden centre on Sunday but they look so pretty I thought I would share them with you.

Happy 'catch up' Tuesday to you all.....I have lots of sewing jobs to do today but have to say it was a pretty special Funday Monday yesterday so don't mind working harder today to catch up.

Don't forget that we have now launched the BIG mystery parcel draw.  It will be open until April 4th so please don't miss out on the chance to win at least £50 worth of beautiful, hand crafted goodies.  Click here to join in the fun.

Oh how beautiful!

Thanks for sharing your beautiful spring garden Annie! The trees in blossom are just stunning and take me straight back to my Mums garden as she had big Forsythia and Magnolia trees which also looked stunning in bloom.

Our garden is slabbed, fancy slabs but still slabs :( Great for the dogs though plus for a couple of cripples - me and Steve!

All those beautiful plants, it certainly reminds you that spring (officially) is just around the corner.
I’ve been out in my garden too and managed to get the grass cut at the weekend and clear out some of the borders, ready for planting.

Thanks for sharing
