A few days ago …Spring arrived …all of a sudden …in a flowery explosion. One day it was grey and cold ..and seemingly the next ..the weather was milder …and blossom was everywhere. Brilliant.
The photos are so gorgeous – the blossom almost edible!
wow, gorgeous – yeah for Spring
Yes, I think Spring has finally Sprung!
I don't think the arrival of Spring has ever been so welcome, or so stunning.
And I cannot wait for Saturday!

what beautiful photos! Im glad its a bit warmer, as i will be in London soon, and its 30c here still!
Oh gash, fab photos. We're still in the false start stage here where last Friday it was 24 degrees, and then over the weekend it went back down to 3. Can't wait. C.x
Such beautiful blossoms. We were doing really well at the weekend but there was 5cm of snow yesterday. Bah! Won't be too much longer before it's all gone again.

That bee in the top photo could not get any further into that flower, could it? It made me smile………. Great photos Emma.
Ah spring…your photos are so beautiful I might have to go for a walk with the camera tomorrow! Lovely post!
Wow , lovely images …so true, spring arrived right on cue :0)
Hurrah! It took its own sweet time but it was worth waiting for!
I know!! All of a sudden there's blossom everywhere. 🙂
Gorgeous photos Emma!!
Hands up who is happy to see loads of blossom, milder air and the birds chirping madly. Ooo! It's me!
Hasn't it been wonderful! I've loved hearing the birdsong and buzz of insects too. Your photos are stunning.

Dear Emma, lovely photos! Our Spring is just around the corner.. we had a spate of cold and rain which held off the floral profusion. Soon, I hope.
PS – I mentioned your name on my blog today. 🙂
Gorgeous photo's… just as we are falling into Autumn!
That big silver ball is a sculpture hanging above the Town Hall in Wellington. It's awesome isn't it… it just jiggles in the breeze.

Wow!..perfectly brilliant photos..you've captured the essence of Spring beautifully!
It has suddenly arrived hasn't it? Despite the winter seeming long spring is earlier than last year.

Fabulous photos! They'd make great cards. Isn't it amazing how quickly the flowers come out once the sun shines and it's a teeny bit warmer. Love it.
Oooh such gorgeous photos! And the sun is shining this morning here too. Bring on spring!
Oh, beautiful and brilliant indeed! Our town plant festival is this weekend, and I'm intending to go and buy one of the incredible salmon pink bushes on your first photo. Ben and I have been having long discussions about what they are – he said 'Japanese rose' and I said 'quince' and a bit of googling has shown me we were both kind of right!
Wow, a bee already, how wonderful! Beautiful photos of spring, thankyou for sharing, they have cheered me right up, winter has officially gone.
Lovely photos, they really capture spring 🙂

Such beautiful blossom everywhere – and your photos really show it to perfection! It's a thrilling sight, all at once – and so exquisite against the blue skies.
Your photos are just awesome. All the flowers are just breathtaking and soooooo beautiful. My you live in a beautiful area! Thanks for sharing this post!

As I type, two Smalls are eating their picnic lunch in the garden, the birds are going berserk and there isn't a cloud in the sky. Hooray! Ax
Beautiful flower photos! We're not quite there yet, but crocuses and daff's are starting to flower, it's lovely seeing that colour again! 🙂 x

Absolutely gorgeous! Wow.
On this snowy, yes, snowy day, I think you for these beautiful blossoms.
Truly beautiful photos. It's not quite like that here yet but I can't wait now after seeing the gorgeousness on your blog!
Lovely photos – hasn't it been fabulous weather these last few days? Makes everything seem happier when the sun shines.
Fantastic photos – I do love Spring blossom.

I am so enjoying being outside in the garden again, isn't it fantastic!
They're gorgeous photos. It's great to be able to get outside and see some sunshine again.
Aahhh – isn't it wonderful 🙂
Beautiful! Thank you!

Terrific photos! Noticeably mild here today – blossom on the way.
The Coffee Lady says
It will throw it down on Saturday. I know it.
Oh Emma your photos capture the beauty and joy of spring arriving perfectly! I love that you were quick enough to catch a bee doing his thing – haven't seen many around yet here, I hope they made it through the harsh winter.
Awwww – look at that bee shoving his head in as far as he can. I think he's drinking in Spring too.
harmony and rosie says
Hurrah for Spring, I am welcoming it with wide open arms! Lovely photos, your chaenomeles reminds me that I planted one in our previous garden. I must get one in here as they are so cheerful.
It really does make for miles of smiles 😀
Amazing, breathtaking photos!
Beautiful blossom and colours, it's so good to see nature come alive again.
Oooh, those pictures are glorious – I've got blossom envy, we're so much further behind with the spring here! I went to my cousin's wedding down in Reading in early May a couple of years ago and travelled down by train – it was amazing how you could *see* spring progressing as we got further south :-).
so jealous! we are just starting to get buds here

Gorgeous, gorgeous colour, and wonderful photos! I really must add a flowering quince to my garden. x
