52 Weeks of Happy (31/52)




Hello.
Hope you are having a wonderful bank holiday weekend (if you are in the UK).
It's been a very busy time in the Birdie household.
We had the funeral for my father in law on Tuesday and it was a sad day, but his send off was everything he would have wanted and more.
I'm also working extra days at the Market Garden for springtime sowing, planting and harvesting.
So days off are a bit of a catch up with housework and cooking etc.
But at last Spring has finally appeared and there is some sunshine and the promise of better things to come.

Here are this week's happy things:

▲ The sheer beauty and colour of the cherry tree at the bottom of our garden. Today it opened it's first few blossoms of pink. By tomorrow the entire tree could be in bloom. It's so wonderful to open the curtains in the morning and stare out at this gorgeous tree.

▲  Planting my dahlia bulbs. I've never grown these before but I'm excited to try this pompon variety.  Hopefully these will be stunning in the front garden.

▲  The magnolia and my rhododendron are both flowering and the colours are quite spectacular.

▲ And of course the fact that we have an extra day off from school and work this weekend. Time to spend together as a family. I love it. 

Have a very happy week. x
