Between bad weather and bad health, it seemed like an eternity since I'd been out and about with my camera.
So when Saturday came along, I was determined to go and seek out some signs of spring. Ideally I would have inspected the garden, checked on the bulbs I planted last autumn, and maybe taken a walk though the fields.
But still it rained. And rained. And rained.
I'd have to find spring indoors and what better place than Strandfield Flower Market? I had time to pop in for some quality 'me time' before going into town.
There was a cosy fire to chase the chills away but the blinds were pulled in the coffee shop making it too dark for photography.
The spring bulbs look tempting so I think I might buy some later in the week to augment those I planted. Perhaps I will drop a few hints that they would be preferable to overpriced roses for Valentine's Day.
I am really drawn to that botanical print and would love to buy it but unfortunately I don't think there's a space for it on our already crowded walls.
Fortified by a hot chocolate, I made my shopping list, read some of my book, and left refreshed to face the weekly grocery shop.
