Is it Spring?

Today in Edinburgh I woke to see snow falling, but now it is just rain. On Friday I was walking and thought it felt like spring. [click for the bigger pictures]
This was inspired by the walk and by Sidey’s theme of “roses are red, violets are blue”. I didn’t have any roses or violets, but I did have rhododendron and crocus, wrong flowers, right colour.
The theme also made me think about “sugar is sweet and so are you”, the sentiment offered in a long ago autograph book by a forgotten somebody. What is ‘sentiment’ and why do I not like it? Because it is sugary sweet? I am loving the responses others (including Sidey herself) have produced for the theme – creativity, not sentiment. Try Tinman who as usual has found many more creative endlines to make us laugh, and Colonialist, Tom also, while Pseu has got some beautiful photos.
Go on over to Sidey‘s blog to see the rest, they really offer a lot of fun and cheer.
It must be spring.
