The weather is warmer and all the spring flowers are showing off their colours!
We bought our house in July 2011 so this is the first time we see what our garden looks like in the spring. It is fun to see which flowers have been hiding under the surface and now peeking out and looking towards the spring sun.
In Denmark we have an Easter tradition where children and young at heart send out a ‘gækkebrev’ before Easter to a friend or family member. It’s a paper cut letter with a little rhyme and accompanied by a snowdrop. The letter is anonymous and the senders name is spelled out with dots. The receiver then has to guess who send the letter. If they guess it, they get an Easter egg.
This year it’s the first spring for my lovely baby daughter, so I thought i would be fun for her to send such a letter to her grandmother (my mum). Here is what it looked like:
Other signs of spring have also been noted in our garden:
