Although our garden is small, there are quite a few Hellebore plants, because I love them - magic at this cold, grey time of year. The flowers don't keep for long indoors (any tips? I've tried hot water, iced water, heat sealing the stems....), but these lasted a day or two -
Hyacinths and tulips - the hyacinths smell delicious! -
Bought some pretty blue and white plates this week from a charity shop (op shop in USA?) -
Bought this turquoise jug too from a charity shop - very cheap! - it's the colour of the sea in the Med in high summer! -
I love this blue colour, as you can see! - the shell's from New Zealand, the photo is our 3 year-old grand-daughter, Ruby -
Snowdrops in the garden too - here, with some Rosemary -
I have a lovely painting of snowdrops too, by Kathy Lewis - a local artist -
This is a photo of our eldest grandchild (now 13!), in a flowery frame I bought ages ago, made of bits of china - I thought this would be easy to do myself and tried it, but it wasn't as easy as it looks! -
And some flowery plates in my cupboard (hutch in USA?) -
I've enjoyed putting this post together, as a respite from the torrential rain and cold weather here!
Roll on Spring!
