Friday Smiles

Hello Smilers

It's a wee while since I joined in with Annie's Friday Smile meme  - been poorly and not really had a lot to smile about - but things have been looking up again this week. The weather has improved ... well, if you consider rain an improvement from snow it has ... and there's signs of spring in the garden. I did have to wait for a shower to stop before I could go out and take these photos to share with you.
Celandines, azalea, crocus, cowslips, miniature daffodils, heather, dwarf iris and primroses.

A white hyacinth starting to come through.
Foliage of aquilegia peeping through.

And last but not least ...
A gorgeous white narcissus with a double frilly trumpet. These had been blown over by the wind earlier this week so I took the advice from Gardener's World this week and brought them indoors rather than leave them out to spoil.

So lots to smile about in my garden. Hope you've had as much to make you smile this week too.

What a lovely post Ellie. So many pretty little signs of Spring....and you just knew they’d make me smile. Thanks for sharing them all.

Goodness, Elizabeth, I was so sorry to read you have been ill. I love the flowers you shared. I have a couple of hyacinths showing in my yard, but it's been so dry here, I'm surprised anything is growing at all, other than dirt, that is. You have a fabulous garden and I'm impressed you have rain, too. Have a super weekend.

These are all so beautiful!
Mine are just peeping up now. Must take some photos.
I treated myself to a pot of white narcissus and sure hope they survive as I have fallen in love with the white!

Your blooms look lovely and you have a nice variety too!

What a lot of colour already. Spring is almost here then. I saw lambs in the field over the way today. xx Jo

I am glad you are feeling a bit better Elizabeth. I have had to dodge a few showers to take photos in the garden too. But your Spring flowers are lovely, and that frilly narcissus is so pretty. I bet it smells gorgeous too. Hope there is lots to smile about this week. Kate x
