My Sunday Photo... Spring Snow

They say variety is the spice of life, well in that case I think we can safely say we've certainly had an abundance of spices today. 
We've had all the seasons rolled into one and here's the proof!
The sun is shining, but there's a flurry of snow every so often, with a little rain too.
If you look past the car you'll see some of the hundreds of daffodils that I planted last year.
This weather is certainly confusing to us, so I can only imagine what it is doing to the wildlife.
The poor birds are building nest in my nest boxes... I think they'll need lots of insulation at this rate.
Whatever the weather try to turn that frown upside down.

As usual I'm linking up with My Sunday Photo
Thanks for visiting my place today and I hope you're enjoying your weekend too.


My Sunday Photo... Splash an Dash!

Yes the snow has arrived and this was Muffin's first meeting. 
She ran out for her usual last minute night-time call, but came to a sudden stop when her paws touched the ground.
The snow wasn't too deep but it still came as a shock! 
We've now discovered the splash an dash technique.
Apologies for the quality of this photo.
 If there's a better opportunity to take another tomorrow morning then I'll post one.
That is unless the snow becomes too deep and there's a chance we'd lose her! 
Have a great Sunday everyone.
(The internet is playing up too but I hope it'll be okay in the morning to add link to Darren's Sunday Photo link)

My Sunday Photo... Spring sprouting and snow



Before I go I couldn't resist letting you see our latest reno! 
In the woodshed an old swallow's nest wasn't used last year, but someone's got their eye on it for this year's new arrivals.
We're thinking it might be a robin... we have four in and around our garden
What do you think?
(Apologies for the bad photo but it's quite dull in there and I didn't want to disturb the squatters)
 We've had such a great week... weather wise, but as I type this post it's actually snowing! 
Honestly... I kid you not... SNOWING!
See...
 I don't think I've ever posted so late to the My Sunday Photo linky... let's hope I'm not too late.

I hope you have a great week ahead.

Paint Party Friday... Sunrise Watercolour and Valentine Postie

Hello Party People... I managed to finish the sunrise watercolour I brought to show and tell last week, so here it is...
I'm late coming to link up today and I can't stay long because we (that is my daughter and I) are keeping the romance alive out there. 
My daughter's art and illustration business is well and truly flying. 
So much so that I've had to leave household chores (heartbroken... NOT!) and everything that's on my current to do list to give her a hand. 

Here's my daughter with the cards and presents for one postal run.

 As you can see there's a fair few love birds out there...

It's warming to see such affection out there especially when everything's chilly, frosticles and covered with snow. 
But take heart spring seems to be taking a peek... 
There's a slight warmth in the sun light AND we've already added an hour to our day light.

We're getting ready for my daughter's first craft fair, so as many of you will already know... there's masses to organise and prep to do so I must fly.
Have a wonderful weekend and I will come to visit all who visit me... promise!
It might take me some time and I am aware that I've still got some PPF peeps to visit from last week... but I will 
Paint Party Friday 
 Toodleloo for now
