I have seen this magnificent display of crocuses and snowdrops for the three Springs now, and each time I gasp, in wondrous delight. Snowdrops first to brave the winter chill. Now crocuses as the sun shines for St. Valentine's Day, at St.Chad's church, Poulton Le Fylde.
Back in the garden one little snowdrop ( mice have nibbled the rest - reminding me of a little rhyme . . .
' Plant four seeds in a row, one for the mouse and one for the crow, one to rot and one to grow").
Hellebores greet early Spring. Daffodils not quite in flower, just tete a tetes in an old chimney pot.
February's welcome sunshine and more daylight hours and bringing warmth to the garden; do not to be fooled as Winter never gives in easily. Stay well, keep wrapped up, warm and cosy, hot drinks and nourishing soup, another cold spell is surely on it's way.

An icy start to February. Blessed with a clear view of snow capped Lake District mountains in the distance
Wrist-warmers. I'm a very slow knitter, and 'dyslexic' when it comes to following patterns, but find knitting rather comforting when watching T.V. Made a couple for friends, and a beanie hat, using oddments of wool. These ones were too grey, as if made for Fagin in a production of Oliver Twist, hence red stitching was added.
Makings of a patchwork quilted bag, using off cuts of cotton fabric, and piece from a torn Indian top found in a charity shop box. A random make that just makes me happy. . . . however it turns out. Wishing you some creative happy moments. Xx
