Lighter, brighter, nearer

January is finally over, and I feel a little bit relieved. Already the mornings seem a tiny bit lighter, and spring seems a little bit nearer. After all, February is a short month, over-before-you-know-it, full of pancake batter and heart-shaped chocolates.

My hyacinths are blooming, white and fragrant, and I feel uplifted.


  1. My white hyacinth looks exactly the same this morning. I feel like I am sharing the start of spring and I am so very much looking forward to it! Really like this photo and your one of the snowdrops the other day. Bringing a smile to my face xx

  2. Gorgeous hyacinths - I can almost smell them!
    And roll-on pancakes, chocolates, lighter evenings... and March!

  3. Yay for spring - so ready for it after having had a proper Winter. Won't it be nice to see some daylight on a weekday? Very pretty pic.

  4. My Hyacinths are the same.. everyday when I come home they smell a little sweeter..

    Spring and daffodils are just around the door - I can't wait!

  5. Hurrah for February! Although it did snow here on Monday ...
