Although I wouldn't go as far to say that spring is in the air, today feels as if it is at least possible. We spent the morning in the lovely market town of Romsey, enjoying the sunshine, and exploring the charity shops. We found a really interesting pen and ink drawing which we think must be 1930s or thereabouts.
A trip to the gardening centre on the way home got us thinking about planning changes to the garden. We bought a holly bush to add much needed structure and greenery, a red currant bush and raspberry canes. Mr C also got some shallots to add to his veg patch. I also bought a lovely bunch of tulips to brighten up Hazel Cottage
Looking around the garden at this time of year fills me with hope that spring will come - the green shoots of the bulbs are poking through the dead leaves, it wont be long until the daffodils arrive and the garden comes back to life again.
The foolish man seeks happiness in the distance,
the wise grows it under his feet
