Bringing Spring home from the Algarve

Spring’s gentle tones were everywhere in the Algarve.  Has Spring arrived where you are yet?  In Australia they will just be exhaling after the scorch of Summer.  My little corner of north eastern UK is shivery still.  Much to look forward to.

Wishing you all a happy weekend!  Have you got six words to share?  Cate at Show My Face will gladly host them.

    1. I’m just rambling through some Portuguese fields (preparing tomorrow’s walk) and they’re a sea of yellow. Not daffs but something I can’t identify. Have you ran/swam/rowed yet today? I haven’t had breakfast yet 🙂

      1. Oh yes. 16km run in the middle of the day. Sheesh. (I had to be on deck for the Learn to Row program in the morning and I had a rehearsal from 3-5.)
        Portuguese fields…. sigh. Would that I were there…

  1. Thanks for the glimpses of spring, Jo! Although I’ve been in the heat of summer in Myanmar, I still love all the flowers of spring. Is it still cold up in Yorkshire? 🙂

    1. Still 2 coats weather, Cathy 🙂 A mad flurry of snow yesterday then sunshine. The iris and crocus are out, though, so that’s encouraging. Promised ‘heatwave’ of 15C at the weekend. Yippee! 🙂 🙂

      1. I’m sorry it’s still so cold, Jo. I know the people on the East Coast in the States are suffering through one of the worst winters they’ve had in years. It’s nice to see those first peeps of spring, isn’t it? A heatwave of 15? That doesn’t sound half bad, really! 🙂 xxx

    1. I think it’s working, Ad! We’ve got as far as iris and crocuses, and the daffs are almost there 🙂 Might be a while yet for blossom but it’s nice to make it last. Thank you!
