Happy first day of Spring in the UK!
we are so lucky to have supermarkets that can bring Spring to our homes for a few pennies and
after being blanketed in snow, some fresh colour is very cheering.
These little viola got purchased then forgotten, but were hardy and survived the snow, still in their punnets they await planting and as the snow melted their smiling faces reminded me that today is officially the end of Winter!
The beast from the East was in the UK only a few weeks ago, causing dangerous road conditions and school closures, then we had more this weekend with a blanket of snow in London and suburbia.
I'm not very well at the moment so resting up. Youngest son has filled the house with the most delicious aroma of lemon, garlic and corriander as he made Lebanese potatos for our lunch - his speciality, known as Batata Harara (we ate them all but they look like this/link for recipe on caption).
Here's hoping that Spring is settling in and that we will see flowers carpeting the woods very soon.... in the meantime here are some snaps of Brighton before the snow.
