Sunlit Sunday



Grape hyacinths, mint and lemon balm leaves on the window sill, with a glow of forsythia outside makes for a very sunny view even when the clouds roll in. 



The bunnies and flowers say, "It's spring!" and it's beginning to feel and look that way. I hope this lovely season is appearing in your corner of the northern hemisphere. For those down under, you'll be anticipating cozy evenings and cooler temperatures. Seasonal changes are most always welcome anywhere.

It is a joy to live where there are such vivid seasons. Well maybe not as striking a contrast as up north, but we definitely have four seasons here. Even in Africa after a time we could tell seasons. Your picture at the window is beautiful.

Wonderful flowers and super cute bunnies!
We too are happy to have four very distinct seasons, but our winter is a little bit too long... :)
Happy Sunlit Sunday!

Lorrie, that was a wonderful idea, photographing the grape hyacinths with the forsythia glow in the background. I think I'll go outside and cut some branches from mine to bring indoors, just so they can flower early and add some colour to my home. The little pastel bunnies and pot are very sweet. I can imagine the children like them very much.

Love your spring bouquet and bunnies. It does put me in the mood for springtime. How I love seeing springtime arriving. Then in the fall I enjoy the autumn colors too. Such colorful seasons.

The grape hyacinth picture is awesome! Love how you captured the yellow of the forsythia in the background! I do love all the seasons, and you are right though, at the changing of the seasons, there is always a sense of anticipation and great joy! Somehow, I think spring is the season most anticipated :)
