Spring from my Window...

Spring in my Kitchen... I am just loving the scent from these hyacinths, I am amazed how scented they are, the scent fills the kitchen and drifts into my living room! Please do not think for a moment that I am crazy for keeping the pumpkin out, it is my little nod towards fairy tales and love for Theatre........ the little frog and pumpkin remind me of ..........Cinderella.

And of course my long time blogging friends might remember I did play the 'frog prince' last year!!! ha,ha and the frog was a sweet gift from my mum.

Crocus - 'a touch of colour among the grey' I love to see these little flowers pop up in spring, the signs of things to come, these are just outside my front door.

'Chicken Run' - well almost! this is the view from my kitchen window,my neighbours to the right own horses, chickens, goats, a cat, and a cockerel ! and they are forever escaping their fences over the garden into my garden..... and so I grabbed the camera and took a photo!

Last week I looked out of the window to see the horse that should of been down on the bottom field right behind my fence! shame I didn't have time to get the camera, I didn't want it to get onto the road and dashed out to call the owner, no one was home but fortunately a neighbour to the left who visits the horse and family led it back to the field! Still I do think a photo would of been good, It was just looking at me through the window! h,ha

The Cat......
I hope you are all having a good start to the week, I am spending more time cross stitching. I hope to make my 'Spring Fairy' into a pillow soon, and my mum has almost finished the Thomas Kinkade stitch, I will share some photos soon.....

Bye for now
