Can you believe we're into the last week of February already? It seems to have gone so fast even for a short month.
But February's always a busy month for us with my birthday and our youngest son's just days apart and then there's Valentine' s Day vying for our attention (maybe one celebration too many). I do like February though and not just because of our birthdays. Knowing spring will be with us soon fills me with hope for the milder, lighter months ahead.
In February I feel I can enjoy the cosiness of winter whilst I begin to look forward to spring. This week's milder weather and bright skies have certainly helped buoy me up. We've relished walks looking for signs of spring and I took my camera for a whirl around my parent's lovely garden where many of these shots were taken. At this time of year I'm also keen to get on with decluttering so I've been editing my clothes, books and magazines and tidying up corners of my home, like this bookcase in the kitchen.
This year February seems to have started in winter and ended in spring. Lovely.
