Farewell, Winter

With the arrival of the plum blossoms I decided it was time to change from winter to spring here on my blog. So it's goodbye to the icy branch and grey background. I've gone all white and pink (the lightest the blog has ever been) and the new header is a picture that I took on Sunday. I may still fiddle with it but for now I must get to bed, I have an early morning tomorrow. Do let me know what you think.


  1. I love the new theme of the blog! I am all for white, pink and blossoms :-)

    It is a beautiful photo in the header!!!

  2. Love the new look. I do like reading black text on white better. The header images is beautiful for spring.

  3. I really like it. It's pretty, elegant and easy on the eyes.

  4. I love the new look (and find it is easier to read black text on a white background anyway)!

  5. I think it's lovely. I can't believe you've already got plum blossoms!

  6. I think your new header is stunning! Great picture. And, yes. It's time to say goodbye to winter once and for all!! :)

  7. Hi, I like it a lot and the header is beautiful.

    I also went and looked at the photos you took in Europe, they are fantastic, love the one of the plain in the London airport.

    Should be getting my camera back in 2 weeks (getting fixed) and hope to find something unique to my area to show.
    Have a nice day

  8. Oh, it's very pretty. Gorgeous photograph!

  9. I like your spring look, Tanabata!

  10. Thanks you guys! All your lovely comments made my evening!! :)

    Lulu- Thanks. Why am I not surprised you approve of the pink and blossoms? :P

    lissa- I actually agree with you about it being easier to read black text on white. I started out with a black background because I thought pictures would look better on it but I'm getting used to the lightness of it now.

    Nymeth- I was wondering if it was too light so I'm glad to hear it's easy on the eyes. Thanks. :)

    Stephanie- I agree, like I mentioned to lissa above. Glad you like it.

    Melissa- Thank you. And actually everything is slightly late this year because the winter was a bit cooler. You didn't want to hear that though did you?

    Les- Thank you. Even though it's still quite cold at nights I'm definitely feeling very spring-like these days. I took down all the winter snow pics we had on our fridge too. Now we'll have to fill it up with pictures of pink blossoms! :)

    Madeleine- I'd love to see some pics of your area. I have to admit I didn't know which picture you meant, I had to go look at them myself. That one was actually taken by the Thames, not the airport, but thanks. :)

    Thanks Jeane!

    Iliana- Thanks. I'm pretty happy with it at the moment.

    Literary Feline- Thanks. I'm getting used to the lightness of it.

    BooksPlease- Thank you!

  11. I am SO ready for Spring!! And what a beautiful picture!!

  12. Until I read Stephanie's comment, I didn't notice the background change, but I agree. I've never been a big fan of the black background. My husband has it on his blog, too. This is easier on the eyes and looks nice and crisp.

  13. Your new header and new look are just beautiful!! How refreshing!

  14. Thanks Stephanie. I'm pretty glad it's starting to look like spring here. Hope it is for you soon too.

    Les- The background was a light grey with the winter header but before that it was black. I quite like the white now too. Thanks. :)

    Janet- Thank you! :)

    Robin- I'm finding the light colour refreshing too. Thanks for the comment.

  15. Oooo! It's lovely! That is the only thing I miss about blogger...lovely big headers!

  16. As much as we like winter, it's time to say good-bye to gray, isn't it? I like the white background, and of course, your pictures are always delightful. (I, myself, had to change from gray to pink.In honor of Spring.)

  17. Bellezza- Thanks. And I love the roses in your header picture! :)
