Has Spring Sprung?


Aloha Sprinklerinos,

This morning as I brushed my teeth, I opened the bathroom window and heard something unfamiliar but oh so lovely- birdsong. For me, the first musical notes from my garden friends of the year are a mark of hope, of good things to come and at last, an end to grey dreariness.

I instantly wanted to do a 'spring' post and sat down with Lappie (who doesn't name their laptops?!) to have a bit of a mooch on weheartit for eye candy. Suddenly, I realised that this all felt a bit de ja vous. Hmmmm. After a little think, I realised I did something VERY similar last year in February! If you would like to read that post, HERE it is. Haha, it goes to show what a creature of habit I am.

Never one to miss out on the opportunity to create a new tradition, I typed "Spring" into weheartit.com and here are a selection of my favourites :

Tulips have been one of my favourite flowers since as long as I can remember. This picture reminds me of my Auntie Rose's garden which is always in full bloom.

Although this is clearly not in England (there are no lorries swaying across two lanes and sports cars cutting anyone up), it makes me want a road trip with the windows wound down.

With two of my girlie friends engaged this winter, weddings are on the horizon. As soon as the shops start stocking nice summer clothes, I'm going shopping!

In our house, Spring is birthday season. Baby Glitter, Me, my Mum in heaven and some of my cousins all have April birthdays, so the anticipation of cake and parties is never far from our minds.

Are you full of the joys of Spring yet?

Toodlepip!

  14. HURRAH SPRING! Where the devil have you been?!

    I'm so excited for Spring - a) because I'm bloody freezing, b) because I'm bored of winter now Christmas has buggered off and c) because it means I'm getting closer to enduring hell on earth and popping out my little boy! He's due in May!

    Excited! Lovely post - has got me in the mood and straining my ears for birdsong when I should be working...

  28. Lovely photos, especially the tulips, they're so bright and colourful! Not feeling very spring link myself, it's been miserable and rainy here all day! Can't wait to put away my winter woolies though! I have a few birthdays (well not me, lots of friends have their birthday... obviously I don't have multiple birthdays, though that'd be cool...)in March/April so buying for those always gets me excited for warmer weather! xx

  35. I keep getting bursts of springiness and summeryness everytime I look out of my window and it's even vaguely sunny. I do love myself a bit of winter, but once the sky becomes a constant grey and the temperature creeps up to a mere 5 degrees I long for warmer days and flowers and daisy-chains and long walks during which my feet won't freeze due to the inability of my boots to keep my feet warm, despite my wearing of 2 pairs of socks AND tights! (: xx

  49. BEAUTIFUL - I only wish that I saw these first thing this morning as I have been having such a bad day until late this afternoon when I went for a nice walk to the park with my children. I love the tulips too. I am part Dutch and had them all over the place at my wedding so this has really cheered me up. I have a nail blog and would love you to take a look. www.wonderlustnails.blogspot.com
