Spring is here – you can smell it

If only this was a smelloblog, smellyblog, pongyblog or whatever the word might be. It’s way too early for lots of things to be flowering, but they are and outside smells beautiful, all lilac and lily of the valley. The colours are wonderful. It will all end in tears of course when the weather breaks and we could certainly do with rain for the vegetable patch but for now, it’s heavenly. Here’s what’s happening in our little bit of Brittany –

Can you smell that lilac bush?

The horse-chestnut is flowering madly.

Tulips are my favourite flower and this Queen of the Night is stunning.

    Oh my! I wish I were there for a visit. I would curl up under the lilacs and let Miss Maudie lay on my lap…

      You’re welcome to visit anytime but you wouldn’t want Miss Maudie on your lap I promise you! She is sooooo heavy. Neither of them are lap cats really which is just as well.
