Spring is on the way!

Spring is definitely on it's way, despite the cold frosty, foggy weather we have been having lately. Looking out my workshop window today, I noticed the first of the spring flowers blooming in the garden.

The violets are so hard to see growing close to the ground, but they are such a beautiful colour.

The snowdrops, traditionally the first flower to bloom in the new year, look so graceful on their long stems.

I picked this violet and brought it into the workshop to photograph - I just love the shapes that it forms.

Yesterday was definitely a good day for my two teenage children. Their band 'Deep Sea Astronauts' won a local Battle of the Bands competition. Y e s !! ... they sounded really good! They may not have made the big time yet, but they were thrilled that their long hours of practice brought them this victory.
