My trip away has been terrific!  I have caught up with so many family and friends and have been looked after beautifully.    I didn’t have much time to paint except for these wonderful blue flowers I saw – the colour was so vibrant I had to reach for the paint box.

Now that I am at home the Snowdrops, that were flowering when I left,  have almost gone and the daffodils are looking wonderful. The year is well underway and I have to say that I  am looking forward to some fine, bright and  sunny days.
