This week has felt positively spring like. With that in mind and ignoring the old misery-guts who was on the radio this morning, waking me up to tell me that we would have frost and possibly snow next week, I have been busy admiring all things spring like.
Just look at my snowdrops.....
and have you ever looked at the flower, turning the head up? I haven't and got quite a shock when I saw how pretty it was.
My purple sprouting broccoli is both purple and sprouting. I'm impressed as all other attempts have been thwarted by slugs and snails or caterpillars. I'm even more impressed because mine is purple. Somehow my Grandads' has ended up all white, leaving a rather confused old man!
And look at this...
Its a drumstick primula only it seems to have forgotten to grow its drumstick so the flower is stuck in the crown of the plant rather than on a stick for all to see.
Spring seems to be rubbing off on my sewing too. First we have spring lambs....well organic sheep at any rate....
then pretty spring flowers. This material is some Cath Kidston that I have had for a few years. It's now discontinued and I haven't got much left so I am going to have to save myself a bag made with this before it's too late.
Lastly, pirate monkeys....well I'm sure they have some connection with spring ;)
I have linked the shops to buy the bags on the photos so if you want to have a closer look, click the pics :)
