Signs of Spring.

Life is coming back to my garden
just a few signs of the new season
Top right photo, just one snowdrop
 It's that time again, my Peony has buds
every year this comes back
it's older that me
reminds me of my mum
 Even our Magnolia tree has buds.
 I spent loads of time last night going through all the saved Christmas cards,
I love this shape, it has cuts and its embellished
here are just some I have made 
these are going to be a really useful stash.
I spent time in the garden yesterday afternoon, just an hour, did some tiding up, I also found my seed box and pulled out the early items. I have found my window sill propagator, it's still a bit early but every thing is at hand. We are looking at changing our water feature, it's past it's best, we have most of what we require, we just require a water tank, yesterday we got a nice enameled bucket, if it works our new feature would have cost us £12.99.
I also did some work on my 2014 book, I have decided again to make all last years post into a book. This will be my 5th book, I am getting much faster, I notice so much by eye, but still have the back up of the template.
I did not pick my sewing up at all last night, I sat down at 9pm and watch Call the Midwife with hubby, such a sweet series.
Today I am popping to our local Aldi I require a few things, their rice and pasta are great prices.
Just hoping the rain stay away, it's not so cold outside, but it does feel a bit colder inside but I aim to keep moving.


  1. I'm starting to notice lots of buds appearing now, a sure sign that spring is on its way. Thank goodness is all I can say, I don't like this cold weather.

  2. We do not have much going on in the garden at the moment, but I did notice the Camellia out in bud, great idea with the old christmas cards.

  3. Great template you chose for the recycled Christmas cards.

  4. It seems we have a lawn full of daffodils, they are popping up everywere, there is lots of buds coming on the trees too,
    your die cutting is bit of recycling:-)

  5. I am so jealous. All of our grass, and half of our driveway, are still covered by several inches of snow. And, today, we are to get between 2 and 4 inches more.

    But, the good part is that Indy LOVES to be out and run in the snow. So I'm happy for her. This is probably the only time of the year that she isn't hot . . she has that thick undercoat for a dog in colder weather than we have.

  6. Looking forward to seeing your Magnolia tree again. Yes we've got lots of bulbs peeking through and our Forsythia has lots of buds on it.
