Snoozing with the Croci

The spring bulbs started popping through
the ground with the summer temperatures
rising so high last week.



So I decided that a snooze in the garden was what I needed
before all the nasty biting bugs woke up.



The heathers and daphnes awoke as well.
Colour is finally coming back to our little paradise.

~~~Yawn~~~

excuse me
my beauty sleep is  'a callin' me!

  1. Beautiful signs of spring. Hey, Sophie, wake up - if you snooze, you lose, smell the flowers, they pass so quickly!

    1. I hear you, Bart and Ruby...you'd think someone would at last warn me...especially when you have a leaf on your chin, unlike when someone has a hair on their chin!

  3. Don't worry Soph., I've woken up with worse things stuck to me than a leaf.
    Ron, those are some stunning photos!

    1. Tanks Fiona...so much fun editing...I'm outta control as usual...Picnik is being taken away from us in mid-April so I'm playing with the options continually to find cool header pix. Some of the options will be available with G+ but not the ones I like so I have to learn some new systems..like Gimp!
