Home bears pre-spring


Hello and happy new year!

As you can see (well at least I hope you can see it) I’ve got a new look, nothing to do with me I have to admit, all the hard work of my son.

I’m now in pre-spring mode and so too is my garden with lots of shoots and buds appearing.

Although the above rose is from an arrangement I have on my table and not in bloom in my garden just yet!!!


However my honesty has actually started to bloom but even I have to admit to that being a bit early!!


Lots of little buds on my cherry tree and on my sycamore too but no photos of that tree as I would have had to cross my extremely sodden garden, the downside to the milder weather has, I’m afraid, been the rain!

I am looking forward to garden days again and it is lovely to know that the days are getting longer.

2015 Animal Collage

I’m also looking forward to making my little animals again, the above collage is of the 75 I made last year.


I even have made a start on a new little creature.

I do love a bright, shiny new year with all its possibilities, I hope its a good one for all of us.

Thank you for all your lovely comments on my Christmas post and for continuing to visit me here, I do hope you’ll continue to do so during 2016.

Happy new year, happy January and happy pre-spring!! 🙂

Hello Vivienne and Happy New Year!! Thanks for you lovely and consistent comments over at TLC, I really do appreciate that you always take the time to say ‘hello’ especially as I’ve been so absent from blog posting and reading this year. I bet you are loving this mild weather we are having, I wonder how it will effect the garden not having much hard frost?? More slugs? Can’t wait to see your new creation, it’s nice to try something different, isn’t it? Bxx
