BJ - what I remember about Kukenhoff Gardens was the pathways of the grape hyacythn just a sea of brillant blue. Then when we were on the coach tour the fields and fields of daffodils and tulips and the canals with swans. That's when I learnt that swans are usually in pairs and they stay together for life.
Washington State especiallylly Oregan coast is on our list to do someday.
Linda you mentioning your allotment, reminds me so of my Dad, he had two allotments and he loved his allotments spent every morning down there. Kept them and my brothers family in veggie and fruit. And of course that's where he met up with his old cronies! Glad you enjoy yours? I guess in a month or so you can start planting your climate is a lot milder earlier than us in Canada, May 24 th is the planting day here.

Oh Ally, the Kukenhoff Gardens are so fabulous. I don't think you can take a bad picture there. What amazed me were the tulips almost as high as my mom's waist! Would love to go back.  Near Cindy and that area of Washington are daffodil and tulip fields. So gorgeous!

We have had a lovely spring day today. Been working in the allotment, my snowdrops have gone now but my daffs are blooming. Still some to come. That pic of the yellow field is asking to become a thread painting Cindy.

Wishing good health and an end to treatments for your hubbies, hope the op is not too long away.

Ours are the same just green shot showing about 5 inches, I think the cold and snow last week but them into sleep mode.
Cindy seeing the fields of daffodils like a sea of yellow, reminds me when we took Mom to Kuknoff (sp) gardens in Holland. My brother SIL Mom and myself took a bus trip there from UK. We went under the Chunnel in the bus and train. We did because Dad wouldn't go and Mom wanted to and Dad had past the year before, it was for 80th birthday.
Today is about 6c and sunny, so good to see the sun. It hasn't been a bad winter for us but it has lacked the sun.
DH is having his stint out today, just dropped him off at the hospital.
Next now we are waiting for an app. From Hamilton for his op.

How lovely Cindy! Would love to be there to see them!  Ours are just barely showing green out of the ground... a bit behind you I'd say.

Happy first day of spring everyone. Daffodils are blooming in the fields around our area. Here's a glimpse of the seas of yellow we get to enjoy on our daily drive to treatment. Tulips are not very far behind these.

Cindy- I can't begin to imagine what you and DH are going through right now with the treatments and after effects but to drive 100 miles every day I am sure is quite draining. I do drive around town but I don't like driving in Hamilton, so we are going to do a test run to the hospital with me driving so I get used to it when I have to drive there. Hamilton has many one way streets and if you are not up on it could get you confused, knowing where to go and which lane to get into is half the battle.
We had another 6 inches of snow,bI guess we are getting our winter at this end of it not much in Jan.Feb but making up in March.
Getting plenty of sewing done.

Wonderful projects to look at. 

Brenda, really pretty florals. They are all great and make one thing of spring. Won't be long until the flowers are blooming. 

Terri, it really turned out well. Hope you can get photos of the other pieces to share with us. 

And Brenda, my apologies in missing your birthday. Happy belated wishes to you. 

Update on hubby. He has four more weeks of treatments then it's a waiting game until we know if they were able to get all the cancer. Seems as the tumor that was wrapped around the nerve bundle at the base of the spine has shrunk, the lymph nodes have been treated (again we wait), and the prostrate cancer is still getting radiation and hormone therapy. The outcome won't be known for about six months. The side effects are really getting him down. I don't get much done except driving him to radiation every day and taking care of him. He has no strength or stamina and was told it will take 6-8 months to recover. He won't be able to drive again until at least August. (He deals with seizures now as well.) Life has certainly been anything but dull. There are days I can barely put one foot in front of the other. But we take it one day at a time knowing we are getting closer to the end of the treatments. If it wasn't having to drive 100 miles every day, it wouldn't be quite as difficult. That's the nearest treatment center to us. I am getting quite a bit of embroidery work done. Have one table runner almost finished with the stitching. It's a snowman scene done in bluework. The pattern is by Birdbrain Designs. Helps pass the time.

Ally, hope they can get Paul's stones taken care of. So sorry he's had such a go of it with them. Sending hugs and prayers for you both.

Brenda like what you did with the inktense pencils. I was thinking trying fabric medium but I have tried aloe Vera gel and found it successful. Never thought Of using printed fabric that pale in colour and then embellished with the intense pencils the colours are vibrant.
Terri great work on the challenge quilt, love how you did the outside edge how unique.
It is great to see people posting their works in progress just love to follow along.
