It didn't feel like spring at the time

These were taken Friday. It DIDN’T feel like spring. At 5 in the afternoon it was 3C degrees, foggy, windy and trying hard to rain.

Friday didn’t start off auspiciously. I was the last of five in the house to get in the shower, and someone had started a load of laundry by then. Shower started off tepid, and got cold very fast. Well, it was awful, but it was short. I was getting ready for a 10 o’clock appointment, and got a call saying, “Could you come at 11 instead?” Bliss. I returned the call to let them know I’d got the message, and they said, “Would it be okay to put it off til next week?” YES! I got back into bed and slept for a couple more hours.

I hung around in my robe all day – I wasn’t going out in that. Until there was a real, honest-to-Pete crisis – I ran out of coffee cream. Urgh. Since I was going out, I took my camera. I bought myself a cup of coffee and a salad, and on the way home, passed a house that has a very pretty garden, in garden season. Lots of periwinkle on the front lawn, instead of grass – no mowing, and does well in shade. So, here you are.

Simply lovely Kate! The day at home (sorry about the cold shower though!)and the comfort of your bed and your bathrobe.

Followed by periwinkle and bulbs about to burst.

Simply lovely.
