The Darling Buds of...March...

If you've read through my blog from the start, you have probably learned that I like the warmth. My husband always tells me that I blossom in the summer - a bit like the flowers I suppose! 
At about this time of year my eyes are actively scanning for buds, or indeed any sign that spring is on the way. 
I have had enough of being cold through to the bone, as much as I've had enough of being indoors with the central heating on. The only thing I like about the winter is lighting the log fire - that's it.

When the summer comes we will spend much of our spare time outside, whether it is lying in the sun, eating our dinner, or just generally pondering around the garden - as long as it's outside in the sunshine I really don't mind! 

My husband has decided that this year he's going to make a vegetable patch. The idea of picking something out of the ground and cooking it minutes later sounds delightful and I'm looking forward to watching them grow. I might even draw their progress too. So - watch this space!

Since it's Mothers Day tomorrow I thought it only right to dedicate this weekends posts to my Mum and the things she likes best - spring flowers.
So, today I took a wander around the garden with my sketch book and pencils and drew all of the buds I could find. To my delight, some are even beginning to flower!
