How nice the sun came out the other day the wild wind had stoped for a little light relieve. I could almost feel spring is round the corner. The birds busied themselves singing as they went, enjoying going out with out there feathers being put out of place. The washing went out to dry, and the windows opened to let the fresh air wonder in and dry the house out.
Captain Rupert hop, skipped, jumped bounced in between the shoots of the daffodils and right down to the bottom of the garden and back again in a flick of his tail. Such joy he felt for soon would be the very best time of the year that all bunnies love - spring.

Ooh look at all these lovely posts I've got to catch up on!! :-) It's a gorgeous painting, those blue tits look like they're enjoying themselves!! I wish I had a Captain Rupert to help me put the washing out, the sun's out here today and I feel like skipping down the garden too!

Way to go, boosting our spirits! Here it is 25F at night, 40F in day, and no end in sight! Spring? What is that?

That is a pretty picture though, and we all are still with hope!

I'm so glad that dear Captain Rupert is looking forward to spring. He would have to wait quite a while if he lived here, it's still very cold and a lot of snow on the ground. Captain Rupert wouldn't like it at all.

Isn't it great to be able to hang out the washing again, and it dries!
I love your latest paintings, especially the one of the allotment ;0)
