Happy Easter! Doesn't the very word make you think of flowers? These are some of my current favourites on our balcony.
During our recent trip to Suffolk we took in a daffodil show in a village called Benhall. This was one of the prizewinners - it hardly looks real. I'm trying to remember the name of the variety - does anyone know? I'll buy some bulbs next autumn.
One category was for sprays of spring blossom - here is a selection below.
And here is a whole array of cheerful prizewinners. I always wish that daffodil shows could give more space to the flowers; but I guess there is just not much space in village halls once you've fitted in the stalls, the teas and the people.....
As well as the flower contest, there were various stalls, including a stall with plants from the villagers' gardens, and of course there were cups of tea and cakes.
F. bought us a bunch of flowers and I have been looking at the patterns and details of them with delight.
I love the way the petals glisten in these narcissi.
I am trying to stay off chocolate for Easter, although K bought us each a PINK chocolate duck. I will be too intrigued not to eat it. Wonder if it is flavoured? I hope so.
At this particular time, I like to reflect on how lucky we are to live in a peaceful and free country - those of us who do, are among the luckiest people on earth..
Once again - Happy Easter!
