Another Springtime Flower

Saturday evening was a a quiet one - Karen was out with her boyfriend, Laura was at the pictures with her boyfriend  to see Daniel Radcliffe's  (Harry Potter) new film The Woman in Black.  
This is a horror film and according to Laura was indeed very scary - I'm afraid he will always be Harry Potter to me!!! 
 Emma was out at a ceilidh being held in our local town hall. Ceilidh's are GREAT fun - I have been to a few. 
In fact I went to one when I was about 4 months pregnant with Emma, it is quite energetic dancing I was dancing so much people were telling me to sit down - but I was having so much fun. 
 Emma agrees with me - they are great.

Well Sunday - everybody was home. That doesn't happen very often - there is usually somebody not here - usually Laura. I have to say it is nice to have my brood all around me. 

I went for a walk in the afternoon - well the sky was blue so I had to take advantage of it!  
Spring is definately coming and there is a wee bit of colour appearing.

 I found this little crocus - isn't it pretty?

 It is very delicate looking - but I think it can't be all that delicate flowering at this time of the year!  It is such a pretty colour too.

Hope everybody has a great new week.

Amazing little crocus. It's wonderful that they - and pansies - can survive such cold weather.
Have a good day, Ellie!
That was nice to have your entire family together yesterday.

Lovely, little flower! It makes me wish I had planted some.

Becky and I saw the same movie this weekend. I have to say, Daniel Radcliff did a great job of erasing Harry Potter in this role. He has really grown up!

What a beautiful find Ellie!! I am hoping to see these here before too much longer, but I think that may be wishful thinking.

I agree with you about Daniel Radcliffe...he will always be Harry Potter to me also!

Thank you so much for sharing with us today at The Creative Exchange.

Have a wonderful evening!

I love ceilidhs too Ellie though I am not that good with my co ordination in some of the dances. Lovely macro too.

Hi Ellie,
Oh my, am I jealous! Flowers actually blooming, my favorite color, and so beautiful!!!!! You are fortunate - we on the other hand, have 9 days of snow in our forecast!
Sounds like you have a house full of girls. Girls are so fun to have/raise :)
Have a great week!
I agree with you I love when all my kids are home, it such a good feeling. I love the photo of the crocus, they are one of my favorite flowers in the spring.
