THE THREE MUSES


SPRING

It's a nithering 5 degrees here in Yorkshire, damp and cloudy, but at least the snow has gone.   Once or twice in the last few days the sun has ventured out, there are tiny purple flowers sprouting in the heather and the birds are busy looking for places to nest .... hopefully there's a  RUSTLE OF SPRING in the air.  Oh, I hope so.

Thanks, Marie, for this week's theme.

Credit to CAJoline for the family, the flowering cherry, the sunshade and the birds, and to HolliewoodStudios for the curtains.  The background was from the interwebby.

Thank you for looking.

What a gorgeous and inviting scene. Coming from a place where there are no real demarcations between the seasons, it's nice to imagine what spring must be like after a long, cold winter. (Hey Ann, I am hosting this week!!)

That scene is idylic, I want to be sitting there having a picnic (granted not in 5c temperatures)
Seriously great work

I can't wait to be able to sit outside in a beautiful spring breeze drinking coffee. A very refreshing collage! We're in the middle of a snow storm here.

My father used to say he was "fair nithered"! I haven't heard that term for a while. Thank you for taking me back to Yorkshire. Tea on the grass with sunshine...a bucolic dream! It brightened my day.xx

What a sweet scene. I went out without my shoes a few days ago and nearly froze my feet off!
