Six word Saturday


Time to send a Spring bouquet!

Daphne (or so my husband tells me)

Daphne (or so my husband tells me)

And who shall I send it to?  Why, all of you, of course, but with a special thought for friends who are having a hard time right now.  I hope the flowers help to lift your spirits.  I wish you all a joyful weekend.  Keep smiling!

The spirit of Spring looks down?

The spirit of Spring, looking down?

Don’t forget to link to Cate with your six words, if you can.



  1. Iris blooming already over there ??? That is a summer flower for us … stunning pretty flowers. For once we seem to have spring on the same time, normally UK is 4-6 weeks earlier than over here. Love you 6 words of beauty … *smile

      1. I love the bouquet … I want one every day … from now on. We should get the flowers while we can see and smell them … not after we are dead. Thank you so much, SweatPea.

    1. The fountain is in our local park which I walk through every Saturday morning to zumba. The flowers- round and about 🙂 May the spirit of Spring be with you!

      1. And may it not bring hay fever this year :D. Thank you, my dear Jo 🙂 I wish I could send you some sunshine, but it is pouring here.

  2. LOVE the purple Iris, Jo. I’ve tried to grow them over the years, but our summers can be so hot and dry, they just don’t thrive like the one in your shot. I do appreciate you sharing!!

    1. I’m more than happy to share my neighbours flowers, Elisa 🙂 I’m a big fan of the tiny purple iris. They don’t like it too wet either and we’ve never had much success with them.

    1. Too late to wish you Happy St. David’s day, Jo 🙂 And it’s hard enough keeping track of the seasons in this country right now. You must be in Autumn still?

  3. che bellissimo pensiero hai avuto Giovanna! pensare a tutti coloro che sono in difficoltà,,,hai un grande cuore 🙂 le foto sono splendide…ho anche sentito il loro profumo
    buonanotte mia cara

    that beautiful thought you had Joan! think of all those who are in trouble, you have a big heart:-) the photos are gorgeous … I also felt their scent
    good night my dear

    1. I have some friends who are having a bad time right now, Ventis. We all take a turn, don’t we? But it’s nice to send a hug with some flowers 🙂 It’s another beautiful morning here but on Sundays I have work to do, so I will just enjoy it through the window. Have a lovely day, cara.

  4. Beautiful bouquet, Jo, just the thing to cheer us up! I have seen some cherry trees with blossom on around here, and crocuses and daffodils are around (though mine in the garden aren’t flowering yet)

    1. Our garden isn’t very colourful, Sue, apart from the hellebores. The front gets more sunshine so the heather is happy and a few wee crocuses. I just sneak up on the neighbours and snap away. (note- I said ‘snap’, not ‘snip’) 🙂

  5. Thank you for the bouquet, as you know I love flowers, any time of the year. That hebe is flowering early though! And I rather think the forsythia might just be a winter jasmine – looks an awful lot like mine, as does the brown hydrangea heads. I must cut mine off soon as new buds are appearing (I keep them to protect from frosts, but not had much of them this winter). Sweet Daphne – a cheerful fragrant winter flower. My six words?
    You have made me very happy.
    Jude xx

    1. Glad you enjoyed them, Jude. 🙂 We had the long discussion hebe/buddleia and Michael would not commit himself because he’s only seen my photos. I know it’s very early but it’s been a most unusual winter and I’m convinced they’re hebes. We have forsythia just starting to flower in our garden but I took those through a garden fence just round the corner, and I will concede you might be right 🙂

      1. I think they are hebes (by the leaf) but they are early, unless they are flowers that have remained all winter! I still have a geranium in flower!

    1. I don’t believe it!!! We have gotten off so lightly this year in the north east. I keep looking over my shoulder- sure it’s hiding and ready to pounce 🙂

    1. No, we mainly have hellebores, Elaine 🙂 My camera is always in my pocket and just wandering into town or zumba/whatever it’s surprising how much colour there is around and about.

      1. Hellebores are nice. I used to have some, but I don’t know what happened to them – squirrels probably! I’ve just been out for a walk and spotted some cherry blossom, crocuses and some purple flowered aubretia. I didn’t think to take photos, even though my camera was in my bag!

  6. 🙂 Very pretty flowers, Jo. Yours are ahead of ours a bit. The red bug trees are blooming though.
    My favorite is your first one. It reminds me of miniature marshmallow puffs on a tree branch.
