Yes, yes, yes!





It's here. It's official. Spring has arrived.

At least for a few days anyway!




The sun is out, the sky is blue, the birds are singing, the flowers are opening, and Logan is as glad as I to feel the warmth of the spring sunshine.

Having been shorn like a sheep last week, he's been shivering ever since, until the warmer temperatures kicked in at the start of this week.

And since Monday we've spent as much of our days outside as we can, working in the garden.

Well, some of us have, others have just been content to sit back and watch...........

The grass has had its first cut, borders have been tidied, a few spring plants put in, and a lot of sitting on the garden bench, eyes shut, basking in the warmth of sun with cups of tea, day dreaming of all the little changes I shall make in the garden this year.

The last few roses left over from last month are still looking pretty, although a little shabby chic now. The white roses went off quite quickly whilst both the pinks have aged more slowly.

And their pretty rosiness just forced me (how could I resist these vintage style roses! ) to buy a new duvet set - gorgeous girly pink roses with grey leaves on a white background - and only £13 for a King size set at Tesco online!!!!

And still on the subject of roses............look what I found in a fav junk/vintage shop in Sevenoaks!!!!

Yellow roses!
A summer dress!
Genuine vintage!

And I know it was meant for me, it called out from the rack of dowdy dull clothes, I spotted it across the room - and it was my size.

I was just a little worried it wouldn't fit me, as sizes were smaller a few decades ago and although it's fine around the waist and hips, I must admit to it being just a tad tightish across the bust. As it's fully lined (with a net frill at the hem) I can't alter it easily.

But who cares! I shall just breathe in! Just don't make me laugh.........

At the same shop I also picked up this sweet little vintage pendant, without a chain, and have just bought a delicate new one for it.

The main part of the pendant is silver, according to the jeweller where I bought the chain, although the pink drop pearl link and fitting isn't - but again, who cares!
It's pretty!


Can't resist just one more peep at the "frock" - to me it's a frock - isn't it cute?!!


Oh, and on my travels the same day I picked this plant stand up for a tenner.

The orange colour is growing on me, although I bought it with the intention of spray painting it white.

Well, I'm off to make the most of this warmer weather.

Thanks for all your comments on my last post, and welcome to my new followers.


Hope you're enjoying some warm weather too, wherever you are.
