Well we’re more than half way through the first month of 2017 and pre-spring is going reasonably well I have to say!
I took the above photo just after the man on the radio said we were covered in a blanket of snow, I had to laugh as the sky was brilliantly blue and there was no snow in sight.
I have to admit it did appear later that evening but it was only a dusting and it had almost all disappeared by the next morning thankfully…..and I hope that’s the end of it!!
In the house I’m surrounding myself with bulbs and its a joy to see these bright little yellow flowers open up.
I bought another pot at the weekend as I like to keep them coming.
I have finished the first batch of girls for 2017.
This little bunny has been appropriately named January and her dress is covered in shoots and buds, a hopeful sign of spring.
With her red shimmery dress and jewel button this little girl has been named Garnet……January’s birthstone!
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner so with hearts, flowers and love birds AND a ‘chocolate’ coloured cardie……please meet Cupid!
The final girl this time is Pink who got her name not just because she is pink but because the flower of the month for January is a carnation and carnations are also known as pinks!
Thanks as always for dropping in, enjoy the rest of January and keep looking for spring! 🙂
