I've been out and about a lot this week, away from the computer. On my way to the industrial estate where I get my printer paper, I discovered a little paved garden, hidden behind a high wall to the side of the tithe barn. Even as early as Monday, it was full of daffodils, whereas those in my garden are still few and far between. I didn't have my camera with me but today was such a warm and sunny day - hot even! - that I popped out to take some photos of them:
While I had my camera out I remembered that it is the equinox, so I decided to record the flowers that are blooming in my garden - some hyacinths in the window boxes:
The first tentative buds of the white alyssum:
early miniature tulips -
- and even some brave-looking wallflowers, growing by a wall, of course!
I can see that I'll soon be getting out my watercolours and doing some 'proper' painting!
