Flowers for the New Year

Hi - linking with  ..............

My amaryllis has just 'fanfared' open -

Ta - da!
And these Paperwhites were out before Christmas; coming to an end now, but still a lovely scent -
Little cyclamen are always so pretty, aren't they? Inside and outside-

This 'Nandina' has been a useful plant this year, with little white flowers, red berries and lovely colour-changing leaves -

The end of our garden overlooks meadows - though at the moment (enough rain, already!!), it's overlooking lakes!

Big thanks to Helena!

Well, after an excellent tip from Helena at The Swenglish House HERE    , I seem to be able to include pictures again - for free - yay!!

We took grand-daughter Ruby (now 2) to a Winter Wonderland at the local Garden Centre last week and she loved it - was entranced! -
Also, now I can show you pics of eldest daughter's wedding - she got married on Dec 4th -

And pics of Ruby and Tilly (now 6 months) -
Well, it's great to be back, but this isn't getting Christmas lunch for 16 (!!) sorted, so I'd better get into that gear.

Have a lovely Christmas Day!

Vintage who?!......

Heavens, where did all that time go??!!

Hope everyone's well. I hadn't really intended to start blogging again, but lovely Mise at Pretty Far West blog HERE (I can't do clever links, sorry *) mentioned my (somewhat defunct!) blog.......

All well here - we now have 6 grandchildren - 4 boys and 2 girls. Ruby will be 2 this Sunday and Tilly is 6 months.  One of the reasons I stopped blogging was that I'd apparently run out of photo space or some such and would have to start paying.....but I might somehow be able to sneak a photo in. No, just tried, it's denying me photo upload...

Best wishes to you all


* Yay - just worked out - I hope! - how to do a link.......
