Purple and White

Good to be home again especially as the weather has been amazing! Clear sunny skies and temperatures of 20+, such a contrast to the mostly grey and damp of West Country UK.
There was some rain while we were away and also high temperatures so the garden has run riot - spring has definitely sprung!
It was very noticeable as we drove down through France how much greener it was compared to UK and also compared to how it looked when we left two weeks ago.
What I noticed most in the garden though was how much purple and white there was around. So here are a few photographs of our garden looking at purple and white.
Almond Blossom

Burnt Orchid

Iris and Honesty



Judas tree

Lady Orchid



Another sure sign of spring is that the nightingales have arrived and have been singing all day and we also have at least one hoopoe looking for a mate.

Hopefully I will be able to get on with some sewing soon!



  1. Oh Lin those flowers are gorgeous. It is the only thing I miss living in a Highrise flat is a little garden. x

  2. what beautiful blooms in your garden. definitely spring time shouting out it's here.

  3. What lovely flowers in your garden! It sounds like you had a nice trip. Thanks for sharing the photos with us.

  4. It's funny how the flowers have suddenly come to life this last week, that little bit of warm sunshine was all they needed. Shame it didn't last very long!! Welcome back. Hugs xx

  5. Beautiful garden photos Lin! Things are much slower here, but getting a little greener with each new day.

  6. We had a lovely day yesterday - but it's drizzling again (not forecast)today. The weeds seem to be doing well!
