Spring has Sprung!

Potted daffodils in bloom spring flowers

Potted plants in flower next to a brick wall - purple and yellow crocuses

We planted tons of Spring bulbs back in the autumn, hoping that they would indeed spring out of the ground during this month. And look… we have purple and yellow crocuses…

…bright yellow daffodils…

…and a fairy surrounded by loveliness!

Our snowdrops and tulips haven’t really done much, but that may be the soil. We are still getting to know the soil here and what works well and what doesn’t, and I am already planning the plants we can add for the summer, autumn, winter and next spring!

Lots of potted flowers against a brick wall

But for now, I am going to sit in this sunny corner by the flowers and crochet to my hearts content. I have a lot of projects to plan and finish now that the morning sickness is finally starting to abate, so I can see many afternoons spent sitting here, especially if I can find a comfier chair to sit in!

I hope Spring has well and truly sprung wherever you are too!

    Amanda,
    I’m glad you are feeling better. 🙂
    That’s great that spring has sprung there. I’m looking forward to that happening here. Right now, all I see is snow.
    Our tulips don’t ever come up until May. 🙂

    Beautiful! Give the others time… not all bulbs flower at once. It is temperature related. I have early-mid-late varieties of daffodils planted to make sure the blooming lasts as long as possible!
    Glad you are feeling better!

    The fairy looks so much at home in between the crocuses! I hope you continue to have fine weather Amanda. x

    Your garden looks so lovely and springy Amanda! I love it and am a bit jealous! I’m ready for autumn to have gone, winter to have passed and daffodils to be blooming again!

    Yay!
    Your beautiful sprouts give me hope for the soon approaching springtime!
    Purple is my forever favorite color and I love it accented with yellow.
    Enjoy your time to crochet with your lovely flowers! How lovely.
