Scented scenic Saturday

It's lovely to see signs that Spring really is on the way as we walk round Rolleston and Stretton.

There's a real carpet of snowdrops down by Rolleston brook.

Hmmm. They smell quite nice too.

The Lady Of The House loved these baby daffodils that were peeking out - but she didn't get anything else in the shot (like me!) to show you how tiny they are. But they are really mini and sweet.

These purple crocuses (or is that crocusi?) are in our own front garden.

Hope you're getting the chance to get out and about and enjoy the smells and sights and sounds of whatever part of the world you are in.

Love and licks, Winnie.

Today I am again joining the Saturday Pet Blog Hop hosted by Life With Dogs, Two Little Cavaliers and Confessions of the Plume.

If you'd like to join in and make new pet blogger friends, please follow your three hosts, add your blog to the Linky and copy and paste this week's new Linky code  into the html editor of your own blog.  The list will automatically update on everyone's blogs as new sites add themselves over this weekend and we can all hop from blog to blog and find out everybody's news.

Thanks again to our three hosts for putting on the hop!

If you follow a new blog after finding them in the blog hop - please let them know that you found them on the Saturday Pet Blog Hop.

Found you through Saturday Blog Hop.... I'm glad I'm not the only one who gets excited to see flowers popping up signaling the end of winter! Just today some bulbs I planted started peaking up above the ground... the deep freeze is almost over!

Wow, so spring comes to the UK the same time as to the States - the crocus are blooming in our yard too! I have only seen snowdrops in pictures though, they look so lovely. Too bad I can't sniff them here on your blog. :)

Oh! I am so envious! We are getting rain and rain today and no sign of spring yet. Snow will come again and again before that. You are a lucky guy!!! Personally...I would eat those yummy flowers!

Hi Winnie! Looks like you had a nice walk to investigate the spring is coming clues. Love those little white flower mounds. In our backyard we only have a tiny leaf on the rhubarb showing, otherwise there are no spring clues here. See you next week!

There are signs of spring here too, struggling to overcome the cold of winter. Your photos are lovely! You look cute too, sniffing the flowers.

Anna the GSD said...

The flowers bloomedd then it got a little cold again, but not too cold to kill the flowers. Speaking of killing flowers, mom needs to get some new ones for the house! Hee hee...
