I’ve been seeing photos that people have posted across social media of all the signs of Spring. I don’t get out much and I’ve not seen anything I’ve been able to photograph yet…although I did see a gorgeous purple bush while driving past someone’s garden the other day. It would have been weird to stop the car so I could get a photo though.
I decided to buy myself a bunch of daffodils in the shopping from Sainsburys. They offered me a £1 refund if I bought a bunch of daffodils. They were £1, so basically I got them free.
Last year I bought some daffodils in the shopping and when they arrived they must have looked like Spring onions because Graham put them in the fridge!
These ones started flowering within minutes of being put in water. And I think they add a touch of Spring to my living room.
Did you know that the daffodil was the logo for Marie Curie terminal illness care.
This week I have had news that my Sister-in-Law is dying of cancer. My dear friend is also on her last attempt of treatment. How do you deal with that?
It’s good to know that there is an organisation that supports people and their families on this journey.
If you wish to know more about Marie Curie or would like to make a donation here is a link to the website.
So sorry to hear your news about your family and friends – all you can do is hold them close while you can. Beautiful flowers.
Thank you Sarah, Cancer is such a dreadful disease x
I love daffodils – have you seen that Hotter are doing a pair of Daffodil print shoes with all proceeds going towards Marie Curie – such an amazing cause
I didn’t know that Kara, I need to take a look now 🙂
I have been buying daffodils most weeks with the online grocery shop. They are such cheery flowers.
So sorry about your sister in law and your friend. Sending hugs x
That’s so heartbreaking about your family and friend. The daffodil is such a beautiful flower and feels like a real symbol of hope.
What a gorgeous bunch of Daffs. I’m so sorry about the people close to you, it’s a tough disease, I hope they have reached out for support xx
My husband came home with a bunch of daffodils for me this afternoon! I work for the National Garden Scheme and our biggest donation is to Marie Curie. Last year it was £500,000.
It’s hard knowing what to do or not to do when others are ill but just being there is important. As for the purple flowers, I have learned to get the photo now, even if it means turning around a couple of times! Don’t worry, there aren’t photo police that will tell you to move along 🙂
I am so sorry to hear your news x
They really are the picture of spring aren’t they xx
These are so cheerful! And a bargain too #MySundaySnapshot
