On Friday night Sir L came home looking very chuffed with himself....he handed me 2 bunches of daffodils from the UK. I could have cried! Daffodils are my most favourite flower in the whole world!
They mean spring is here! (Well in the UK anyway, definetly not in NH!)
Spring is the best time in the UK with daffodils, snowdrops, tulips & hyacinths everywhere. Fluffy cloudy sky's, cute baby lambs frolicking in the fields and green everywhere! Green hedges, green grass, green trees starting to bud and oh the blossoms that come in late spring are just gob smackingly gorgoeus! Oh yes I am homesick!!!!
Not to mention that today I woke up to a snow storm....oh yes the darling weather forecast was calling for snow flurries (not a worry in NH.)
At 6.30am the deal was a 2 hour snow delay for the kids.
By 8.30am no school today kids! What the heck?
Do these weather forecast folk ever get sacked or fired for getting so many peoples lives screwed up by a predicted mistake in the weather?
So I look longingly at my daffodils, clamp my eyes shut & I pretend that I am in the Lake District at home. Oh for Ambleside & its bubbly pubs, fresh air, superb hiking and the yummy Kendal mint cake, open toasty fireplace's, cream tea's & fudge! Hopefully in May I will get there!!
