It's the First Day of Spring!

It was such a lovely day yesterday and, although a little cloudy, a preview of spring. We decided to walk to San Anton Gardens for a late morning picnic. I took several (hmm, maybe just over a hundred to be exact) pictures and I knew I would share some with you so here is one to start us off ... these flowers were impressive!

Although today is actually the first day of spring, unfortunately it was a dull day, but with these pictures in my files, I will try to brighten up our little are some more from yesterday's outing...

Last but not least, here is a picture of a very friendly furry friend who seemed very comfortable sitting right next to us...

It was one of those March days when
the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold:
when it is summer in the light,
and winter in the shade.

  1. Doreen, your pictures are beautiful.
    San Anton Gardens must be awesome at this time of the year. You are well into Spring ... some plants have only just flowered in our garden.

  2. Hi Sis,
    Thanks! Yes the gardens are beautiful. I would not venture there today though as it has been very cold and very windy since that day. It seems like the day I took the pictures was a teaser!


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment, your input and time are greatly appreciated.
