is it May or February ?

19blog-daffo1.jpg

On this last day of February, I’m wondering what month we actually are : May or February ? It’s been very warm for the season, and I know that some of you in the UK or the Netherlands (or even anywhere in France, coucou je sais que vous êtes là !) have been experiencing unseasonal warm temps.

mini daffodils bought last year, that grew back this year !

Good thing for the laundry, and the plants suddenly think we’re at the end of spring, but it is not reasonable to think it’s going to last ! And I wouldn’t want it to last ! I’m in short sleeve teeshirt & flip flops … I actually have put my wooy slippers for a couple of months only. Then back to the flip flops … oh well.

In the meantime, I’m enjoying my blooming flowers & plants. I recently bought some new, that I will be sharing soon.

I hope everything is fine in your life & in your corner of the world. I hope you’re having a nice so far.

happy equinox (+ rosemary desktop wallpaper)

Happy equinox everyone, may it be Spring one or Autumn one ! (if you live in the southern hemisphere)

We bought a couple of flowers yesterday & sowed our very first seeds of the season, yay ! This spring, I went for cherry tomatoes (again), cosmos flowers (again), pink ipomoeas (I hope they'll make more leaves & cover more than the Morning Glories), and zinnias, which I hope will thrive !

Our Japanese maple, after a difficult summer, is making buds & leaves again. Phew. The buds are just starting to unfurl, they are so adorable & touching to see :

The rosemaries are in full bloom (I plan to have more, because it does well in the heat, and keep their leaves all year around, which is fantastic !), which is lovely to see.

This last photo above is available as Desktop Wallpaper in the Goodies section of the site. I hope you'll enjoy as much as I enjoy having it in my garden !

Have a lovely day ! Thank you for your visit today !

With love,

Sonia

those strong & uplifting daisies

Snow or shine, the daisies are always present, always generously giving you their best smiles. The ones in my garden survived the snow, obviously, and are back in force. I thought I'd share some with you ... like sharing the uplifting & happy vibes !

See how sunny (and warm, it went up to 18°C ... it went down to -7°C a handful of days before) it was yesterday ?! Laundry day it was, you bet !! Pitou took time to stop & smell the flowers ! Literally !

Aren't they such pretty yet simple flowers ? I love them to bits ! Happy Sunday you all !

With love,

Sonia
