Yesterday I finally got round to doing something that I've been promising myself since my birthday - buying a years membership to local Exbury Gardens. By becoming a 'Friend of Exbury Gardens' for a mere £45 for a year I can now enjoy unlimited entrance to the Gardens, rides on the steam train, a discount on plant sales , discounts to 'Walks','Talks' and 'Workshops' held in the Gardens and invitations to their Five Arrows Gallery exhibition launches. I am going to be there a LOT -all photos this week are from there.

Mooching about for an hour this afternoon, the springy mossy grass underfoot made me daydream of Summertime to come, of escaping there when the children are at school with a drawing pad and camera. I've had a much needed sense of calm there today. The mayhem of the Team Honk relay is almost behind me now and I feel a little lost, it's been a big part of day-to-day life for nearly 3 months so I guess that's only natural.

Faves from last week include: Thoughtful garden appreciation, Pull a weed lose a worry, Claudia's pots, a sea of blue and yellow, the secret garden, sprouting seedlings and building a vegetable trough.

This time next week it'll be APRIL!
