So When I Got Home …

… it was raining.

My gardening plans came to nothing, apart from a quick look round and some photographs taken on my phone.

The pansies have survived their first night in the ground and the miniature daffodils have started to open. Pity about the rain, although I think the droplets suit them.

Grape hyacinths shaping up well. Out soon, I think.

 

How to Combat February

When February hangs around too long, you need these.

Well, I do anyway. Everything seems grey, brown or green at the moment. Green is gorgeous, of course, but I’m longing for rich, intense colours. Jewelled, stained glass colours. The colours of boiled sweets in a tall glass jar.

Anyway, saw these yesterday and thought they would provide a temporary solution.

By the way, I quite like February.
