Raindrops on roses…

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens

OK, no kittens…

Flute playerbut plenty of raindrops on lilies

and these are a few of my favourite things…

Today is the March equinox – the spring (vernal) equinox in the northern hemisphere when the length of the daylight hours equal the length of the night hours (well almost…) and is the beginning of spring according to astrological belief. This year it is also a date for a total solar eclipse and a super moon and the International Day of Happiness! Let the good times begin…

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

    1. I’d never heard of the day either, but it seemed appropriate to add it to the list 😀
      As for the flautist, I have no idea, the garden was full of sculptures (one of which I coveted) but the prices were somewhat eye-watering.

        1. Actually in my first comment I’d thought about writing fl(a)utist because both versions exist in American English. Flautist is fancier and used primarily by classical musicians, while flutist is more of an everyday word.

  1. Stunning images. I wondered about the statue too, and the answer above has led me to your other blog. Sigh….I see my life increasingly disappearing into a flurry of bog reading!
