I am old enough to know better but every year I am amazed at how bright the first flowers of spring are and how early it all begins here in Devon.  We have had an exceptionally warm week and as a result Spring has sprung!  Here are a some snaps of a few of the blooming, buzzing plants in our tiny garden.  Hope you enjoy them as much as we do. 

Don't look too closely or you will see where the snails have been nibbling the leaves!

Funny, I don't remember planting these here.  Must have been a few loose bulbs tucked in at the last minute.

Can you spot the bee?

This place is really buzzing!

The most important thing to remember is to take time to ENJOY it all!

Where do we start?

Where do we start?  Well, not at the very beginning that would take forever!  I came to Britain to live with my English husband nearly eleven years ago..  It was a dream come true for me.  We live in a beautiful part of the country surrounded by historic villages and wonderful local food.  I would love to share some of these things with you.  I'll show you some of the British countryside , share some of my favorite recipes, and just for good measure, include some photos of the Dust Bunny!
