Just bees and things and flowers – spring time in the sunshine
Last week I was holidaying it up in the Czech Republic, snowy Prague to be precise. Now that’s one beautiful city but it’s still cold – very cold – this time of year. Travelling to the airport on our return journey home, the ground was dusted with a fine sprinkling of snow and spring felt like it was still a little way off for the residents of the city of Praha.
Returning to the South East of England has been somewhat of a spring awakening. The hyacinths in my garden are nearly in full bloom and there are signs of the peony plants poking their heads through the soil after their winter slumber. Heck, I even enjoyed a Staropramen in my local beer garden yesterday.
Following on from last week’s daffodils and Welsh cakes feature, I was hankering for a liberal scattering of spring flowers in my home upon my return from central Europe and, lo and behold, a dear friend of mine has bought me an abundance of narcissi. What greater pleasure can be had this time of year than having a jam jar or two of these golden beauties in each room of your little roost.
