It's been so lovely to see the sun today, the light has been so uplifting.  I headed up the garden this morning with a spring in my step.  A shaft of sunlight had caught hold of the witch hazel blooms and turned them into a string of fairy lights.

I cut a few twigs for my desk and as the day went on kept noticing how the light continued to play with them.

There's something rather magical about flowers that appear straight from a woody stem, way before the leaves

Charming, but still scruffy….
