March indulges our senses of smell and sight with a wonderful display of blossom and flowers. Our garden is so pretty right now, with plum blossom and hyacinths of many colours. I've noticed that the tulips are soon going to bloom as well, give them another week or two.
While rosemary's flowers are very modest, they are still pretty, and attract insects too.
Sunday was Sasha's birthday, which we celebrated quietly at home, with a chocolate cake and pancakes for breakfast.
I love vintage marcasite brooches, and bought this beautiful tulip brooch as a treat for myself.
On my recent charity shops' crawl I found this old copy of Oliver Twist for 20p. I loved the inscription inside it "To Maurice with love from Auntie Alice + Uncle Horace, Xmas 1951". It made me think you hardly ever meet anyone nowadays called Horace or Maurice
I walked to Saisnbury's and took a photo of St Mary's church for Sasha, as he likes my photos of the churches.
Plum blossom in the garden...
Gorgeous magnolia tree by the river Windrush (view from the bridge).
We went to Oxford again today, this time to the Ashmolean, as Eddie wanted to look at the mummies, and Sasha wanted to see the Greek rooms (he kept showing me the photos from his school trip to the museum from several years ago).
Spot the difference!
