My heart sank a little when I opened the curtains this morning. A heavy frost and thick white mist greeted me. After such a glorious few days, it really felt like Spring was on the way. It wasn’t long though before the sun broke through.

I spent most of the day on calls. The last one, I sat in the conservatory basking in the sunshine. And I spotted the tiniest glimpse of pink on the camellia buds. I must admit I got very excited about that! Thankfully the lady I was talking to completely understood. And retorted with a very large fox peeing in her garden. I love random conversations.


Tickled pink

So pink seems to be a bit of a theme this week. First my gorgeous pink camellia exploded. Then my eye decided to join in with another burst blood vessel. Finally this stunner at my chiropractor’s this morning.

It made me smile. Which is more than the weather has. Talk about another random day!

Pretty in pink

It shows that the weather has been a bit odd recently. This camellia flowers after my other one. Usually in late April. But this year, it’s very ahead of itself.

It always makes me smile as it’s so pretty. Perfect on a grey, cold day. I was fighting hibernation-mode today. After the glorious sunshine of the past few days, it was a bit of a shock to be cold again.

All the two’s

Today is a special day. It’s 22-2-22. How cool is that?! I love a palindrome.

It’s also the day my camellia burst it’s first bloom. This always makes me smile. It’s so pretty and reminds me that while things may be pants weather-wise, better things are ok the way.

As Charlie Chaplin said ‘nothing is permanent in this wicked world, not even our troubles’.

Perfect blooms

This sight always makes me smile. It signals that Spring is in the air. The blooms are so perfect and vibrant. They almost look painted.

This year they seem to have more white in them than in previous years. Didn’t know that could happen. Not complaining as they look stunning.

Enjoy the view

Day 146: enjoy the view. What a beautiful day it’s been. It’s been positively balmy. I got 3 loads of washing on the line. The first bloom on my camellia is starting to open. And I took Buddy out for a long hack.

It was rather windy, but it was one of those days where I just wanted to keep going.
