DISTRACTED BY SPRING

I certainly had not planned on this long a break from blogging. The plan had been to take time off during the Easter break, however, some technical hitches occurred with my computer and connection. Fortunately, all has been sorted out. I also had knitting projects to complete - thank God all done and dusted.


Meanwhile, the weather has been so wonderful that I cannot resist soaking up as much sunshine as I can. One is never sure what the weather will be from day to day. Despite being homesick, I rather enjoy the seasonal changes in this country. In particualar, spring when flowers, especially roses start to bloom. My walks are made more enjoyable by the sight of roses beginning to open up.
Glory to God for the beauty around us. (Hi, BJ!!)

Yes, I love spring - I have never stopped being fascinated by flowers on trees, and the little gardens of flowers in London that appear miraculouslyin spring.

It has been rather nice in the last couple of days

Am so glad you've been working on our knitting requests. I will be checking mail more often and will let you know as soon as the new socks & scraf you made me get here:)

Spring (then summer)is my best season and everything just seems to be getting back to life. Fresh, cool air outside, more radiant sunrises & birds chirping. If that's not heaven on earth, then what is?

Kool photos, take more esp of "roses".

PS: Hope you fixed the computer problems once & for all.

You know, as much as I'm thankful for our sun 365 days a year, I would love to live in a place with seasons, waking up one day to find the world dancing to the sound of birds and bathing in the scent of flowers, or covered in snow....

Welcome back. Take loads of pics!

I like the differences in spring from one locale to another too. When I lived in DC the cherry tree season was really breathtaking though short-lived. Reminded me of fall in New England in terms of vividness.

this is such a lovely post. If there is one thing about England that I truly love it is the weather.

No two days are ever the same and the season changes are fantastic to watch.
