Spring arrived yesterday but sadly it didnt stay and there is a cold biting wind again today, I made the most of yesterday's sunshine by visiting the Walled Garden at Sunbury-on-Thames and for the first time this year I was able to sit outside in the sun to drink a cup of coffee.
Here are some of the flowers in the Walled Garden

Another attraction in the walled garden is the gallery which houses the Sunbury Millenium Embroidery - an amazing  village project which celebrated the new millenium and was worked on by 160 local people

Alexander and Pebbles keep warm by sitting on top of the boiler 

I really enjoyed watching the television series 'Mr Selfridge' and decided to go  to London last week and revisit the store.
I was fascinated by this decoration on the side of the store near the entrance to the Food Hall.






More flowers

This variegated wallflower ( Erysimum linifolium)  grows on a raised bed on our patio and I can see it from the kitchen window. It has been flowering for several weeks now. 

Scillas add a welcome touch of colour


This beautiful planter with Violas and Muscari was a Mothering Sunday present from my daughter Emma


and this lovely posy card a present from our kind neighbour


Bobby won first prize at nursery in this Easter Bonnet made with some help from his Mum
