It has been a beautiful day.



So beautiful that I was inspired to paint some papers.  The colours are a bit odd because I was experimenting with using watercolour to make paste paint, and  used up some left-overs. [Those dark marks are shadows, because the sun was shining!]



So beautiful that we had lunch in the conservatory for the first time this year – and I took my sweater off!2011-03-021

So beautiful that we tore up the ‘to do’ list and went to the Hillier Gardens, where there were spring flowers, 













an amazing rhododendron, 






and beautiful trees.







The tea and cake were pretty good too.


But best of all – my beloved flowering cherry at home thinks it might almost be spring – there are little tiny red buds on there.




According to Google weather, there was a ‘chance of snow’ today -suppose it still might…
