Leap Forward

I wanted to post this morning, with today being February 29th, to wish a Happy Leap Year and to give a positive message to the rest of 2012. It hasn't been the best for me so far, with one thing or another, so a re-energise is what's required - And what better than a few hours spent in the garden with the spring feel gaining momentum there...

I tidied the borders and pruned some of the shrubs...
To think in just a few months time, it should all look like this again...

Ahh...lovely!
Have a happy day!
