Picnic in the tulips

I know, I know the song is tiptoe through the tulips, but I like to sing “picnic in the tulips”, when I’m having a picnic in at the edge of the bulb fields.

What do you think? Pretty spectacular, I think. The weather on the weekend was glorious and there were a lot of other people driving around the bulb fields soaking up all that colour. I’m glad we went.

Is it nearly spring?

Yesterdays weather was pretty disgusting. We got so wet walking the dog it wasn’t at all pleasurable especially because doggy training has started in earnest and he just isn’t getting it. We had our first puppy class on Saturday and my brain ached by the end of it. The trainer said “Oh he is such a lovely dog but strong minded” Mmmm we will see if she sees any improvement on Saturday because I am not so sure.

Today however is bright, I wouldn’t quite say it is sunny but it is a lovely dry and bright day, and it has made me think of spring. Maybe because my friend gave me these yesterday


Or maybe because I treated myself to these the other day


Or maybe it is ‘just because’.


Until next time…..
