En masse




One can lift the spirits,





but when there are 16

 or 79















or simply too many to count



it makes me want to



burst into song. La la la LAAA!


This post is for Helen.

Photographs of: honeybee in a Japanese quince flower, wild violets, hellebores, almond blossom, primroses, cherry blossom, Japanese quince, daffodils and snowdrops.

I have just made a coffee and put an hour aside to have a look around and here I find your blog again.
Your photos are uplifting and you can see where you get the inspiration for your lovely jewellery designs.
I am sure that it will not be long before I see these beautiful spring flowers appearing in your lovely silver handmade jewellery designs

It seems to have arrived all in a rush and it couldn't be more welcome! I used to think Spring was overrated, but now it is one of my favourite seasons.

Rachel said...

Lovely indeed. So good to see the blossom again!

we are behind you on the blossom but I saw a sea of crocus today that made me very happy x

I may not be the Helen this is intended for but I enjoyed it. My garden has crocus, snowdrops(almost gone, hellebore and the tete-e-tete daffodils are almost ready to open. :) (I have some primroses in pots by the door) Beautiful pictures. Helen

Oh beautiful photos - isn't Spring the happiest season! I saw my first butterfly yesterday too - I hope it managed to find a warm spot to sleep the night.

Hurrah for the first butterfly! I've yet to see mine but my youngest announced that she spotted one yesterday

Thimbleanna said...

Wow -- I'm thinking I need to come to England -- your flowers are all looking so beautiful! We're still at least 6 weeks away from such a sight!

Spring sprang I see (I have no idea if the latter is even a word in that context!)

I have wild cherry blossom on my blog just now ... it screams 'winter's over' to me.

Oh isn't spring just wonderful!

I visited Cambridge Botanical Garden yesterday and saw the most amazing blossom and lots of very busy bees. I share your love of this time of year Emma. Great photos as ever.
