Soaking Up The Spring Sun

 

Sleeping In The Sun

Sleeping In The Sun

At a glance, this kitty cat picture might look a bit disturbing, but I assure you…he’s fine and only doing what we’re all doing here in Cornwall…soaking up the sweet warmthof the spring sunshine.  With all the lovely spring flower photographs I’ve been enjoying on the blogs I read regularly, I thought I’d post a few of my own for you to enjoy.

It was February 2008, when I first arrived in Cornwall, meeting John face to face on Valentine’s Day. After two lovely weeks with him, I went back to Georgia and didn’t return until May, when the colors of Cornwall had shifted dramatically. It’s a great gift to see the seasons transition this year with the sweet man who is now my husband. I love how he seems to know every plant and bird species by name and everyday feels like a field trip as we explore the places around us.

  1. Lovely photos! We’ve been having so much rain lately that I haven’t been able to enjoy the sunshine as much as I’d like! However, I do appreciate the rain, and I hope the reservoirs are filling back up!

  2. Happy Love Thursday to you!

    Your images are so capitvating, I especially am drawn to Close to the Heart of It! The colors are so beautiful. Peaceful, too.

    Thank you for capturing these!

  3. these photos are amazing and so interesting to see the different flowers blooming there. I’ve never seen a magnolia quite so pretty or a pine cone anything like that. what are the golden explosions?
    I would so love to visit there.
    thanks for sharing these images.

  4. stunning stunning stunning.

    I wouldn’t think of magnolias in Cornwall, I think of them as being Southern . . .

    thanks for the glance into your Spring!

  5. Wow wow wow. The first magnolia especially, with the pink inside and all the blooming branches in the background knocks me over. Awesome photographs!

    And ooooh a town green – just the phrase is so English to me, and your photos of the church are perfect.
