A Little Bit of Colour

We have just got back from a very lovely visit to Laura.  We had a really nice day over in Dundee. Their baby furniture was delivered - cot, wardrobe and dresser.  So Danny and Kevin got together and built it all up, and I have to say it does look really good.
At the same time Laura and and I took a walk into town and into a coffee shop for a nice drink and an even nicer muffin. It was lovely and we had a good old chinwag :))

On the way home we thought we would drop into Stirling to see the church we usually see from the road, the only trouble was that there was a service on and we couldn't really park and have a look around so we will have to do that another time.  
 I've posted this picture a couple of times - but just so you can see which church I'm talking about!

I have been feeling the need for some colour in my blog and I can't wait until Springtime.  So I decided to look through some of my old pictures and I found these. And they fair cheered me up. You really can't beat a little bit of colour can you.

These shots were taken a couple of years ago when we were in Norfolk - in a beautiful garden which was open to the public. 





I hope you get as much pleasure out of them as I did :)

Have a lovely week everyone :))

Lovely photos but it will not be long before there is colour back again. We have a little bit of pink, mauve and white showing in the odd place at last. Now if the rain just stops for a while I can get some work done in the garden! Have a good week Diane

I see that lots of people are longing for spring as summery and flowery pictures are popping up everywhere! I especially enjoyed your shot of a pond with a little bridge and masses of greenery.
The preparations for a first baby are always so exciting, aren't they? Having the baby furniture arrive makes it all seem so real!

Wonderful pictures! Thanks for visiting my blog and for your lovely comments! When are you coming to New England? Autumn is spectacular here! Funny thing that you're coming here later this year because I'm heading your way later this year! Going to England and Scotland in June and I can't wait! Used to live in England as a teen, but it's been so long since I've been out there. Will definitely look through your pics of Scotland! xx

Hi Ellie! Such lovely spring shots, and they are like a balm to my soul! I can't really complain in texas about the cold, but everything is so BROWN, so your photos are very nice to see. Hope that Laura is doing well, and know that she ( and you) are getting very excited. You are going to love being a grandma to that wee babe! And what a great grandma you will be! Expect to see lots of photos! Here is to spring!
