Blue Skies

We celebrated my Poppet's first birthday today. 
As if in benediction it's been such a lovely blue-sky spring day. The cherry plum and quince blossom is blooming,  our roses are just beginning to come out and our fairy magnolia managed a single much anticipated bloom just in time for the Poppet's big day. 
It was wonderful to see my Poppet playing with her cousin (younger by six weeks) and so many giggles listening to my Sprocket sing happy birthday and purloin the candle for himself.
