Happy Easter

Are you enjoying  your Easter break? Did you remember to put your clocks forward today? I must admit I'm not a fan of switching to summertime. You get up early, and it's already late. And I've started going to work a bit earlier two weeks ago, so that means that next week, I will have to leave the house in the dark again.

I am having a quiet and relaxing Easter break at home, doing a bit of this and that, and sometimes not much at all. The weather is a bit of a mixed bag. Pouring down with rain all Friday, a sunny and warm spring day yesterday, and for today and tomorrow, it's going to a be a bit of everything - sun, clouds, rain.

Yesterday finally felt like a proper spring day, so I grabbed my cameras and went out to snap some spring flowers. I've been seeing lots of photos of beautiful magnolia trees in full bloom in the UK on Instagram, but here, they're still only just beginning to blossom. I love this magnolia tree at the bottom of my street, and I'm looking forward to seeing it bloom every year. I just hope that we get a few nice and dry days to enjoy it as much as possible.

Lots of flowers appearing in the gardens too, big and small.


  1. Such beautiful flowers, I haven't seen any here yet.. Spring is on its way, although we have cold weather today. I had a long walk, and it was good.
    Glad påsk! or God Påske as we say in my language :)

  2. Lovely spring photos. I really look forward to the clock changing. I get up early anyway and it means lovely light evenings with more painting daylight!

  3. Ooh, I LOVE it when the clocks go forward! All that extra light makes me feel like I can get so much more out of a day than just work :0) The photo's are beautiful :))
