Spring has finally sprung in these parts with the most glorious of mild sunny days.It has also been heralded by many signs and you know how I love my 'signs'!
This bunch of blue lushness arrived on the last day of winter clutched in a little visitor's arms with yet another lovely meal. There is something about irises that just explodes with joy and spring and all things vibrant and new.
The windows to the mountains were similarly vibrant on Saturday morning with Spring ringing in the blueness of the sky and blooming wisteria- already!
Of course, some see Spring as a time to set things in order.
We were also celebrating my last visit hopefully, ever, to the keeno place. Since champagne and good food were not desirable, I expressed my happiness through a good pedicure with single coloured toenails. Ironically, a package arrived the next day containing another celebration which I suspect may contain many hued toenails from all over the world! When Anna dropped in Sunday it was still unopened. It will remain so until I feel well enough to open it without associating the keeno sickness with the contents. She apologised that it was late but I could not think of a more timely arrival than the week of the final treatment. I will share it with you when it is opened next week!
We did have a big week- end in spite of the keeno cloud. Our school celebrated its 100 year anniversary and it was just too much fun to miss. A lot of the celebrations have been compromised this year including the boys' concerts on Thursday and Friday nights. This time the good drugs were still on form for Saturday. There was a trash'n'treasure but no Bitossi this year although I was a bit taken with the shape of this little drawer set. It was already sold though.
What could be more Springy than baby animals drinking from bottles with that besotted newborn concentration...
and first timers on tea cup rides.....
and first timers with fairy floss.
And FIREWORKS! I was grinning in the dark from ear to ear! It was a great celebration of one hundred years and spring and new life in many more ways than one!
|Can you see the iris in this one?|
