Rain & Prettiness.............

When I woke up this morning it was raining, not the winter rain we have had but bright rain.
Almost like April Shower type rain,big fat clear drops of rain.
So bright that when I left our drive a rainbow was waiting for me in the sky.
But let me show you what brightened my day before the rainbow brightened my day.


 On my kitchen windowsill I have a few little pretties.
Some lovely pink tulips.


Randomly uploaded upside down!


A gorgeous smelling Basil plant.
Some Hyacinths waiting to grow & some crocuses which were a Christmas present.


Another a random upload ......

I am also loving my new tea spoons which I got in the CS on Saturday.
I think they will be perfect for sorbet on a Hot Summers day......
Ohhh, when will the sun start shining.....
So after the Monday I have had!!! these little pretties really did help to brighten my morning.
I hope you all had a happy Monday?
Luv

Lovely to see your cheery windowsill -mine is full of herbs and makes standing at the sink a very fragrant affair!
