Hiding in the garden, in amongst the leaves I found this tiny purple viola, all on it's own, smiling away with it's cheerful little face.
This pansy, so much bigger and brighter is even cheerier, but somehow I prefer the delicate little unassuming viola. This week they have enjoyed glorious spring sunshine, whilst I've been stuck inside with a filthy cold and a child with a chest infection. Start of the school holidays, everyone is feeling better, and the Met Office website is forecasting severe weather warnings of snow and sleet for the next few days. I am really really hoping it is an April Fool, otherwise plans will change to include pyjama days, baking bonanza's and plenty of hot chocolate.
Have you got any nice plans for the week ahead? Hope the weather is kind for you.
