Seen at the Festival of the Tree

...if you would be happy all your life, plant a garden ~ Chinese proverb

I only buy flowers from January through to March when I buy cheerful Cornish daffodils each week to brighten up the kitchen during the remains of winter. Yesterday's all too brief spell of sunshine highlighted my first bunch of the year.

On the way home from Devizes last night, we encountered 2 deer in the road. We stopped the car so as to not spook them too much and to enjoy their magnificence. They were just a few feet away, the closest I have ever been to deer. They looked at us for a while and then in a single leap over the hedgerow at the side of the road, were gone into the night. A magical end to the day.


  1. You take some great photos Michelle. I always treat myself to daffs too, I don't have any in the garden, I just have jonquils in pots. I love the colour yellow, the world would be a dreary place without it. x

  2. I just started forcing some bulbs. It makes me so happy to watch things grow.

  3. Thanks both. Bulbs are so cheerful aren't they?
