February already? I didn't find January a slow month and I'm still ok with winter at the moment. How about you?
I do have a feeling I wrote a very similar comment this time last year...then quickly got fed up with the cold and and mud and started wishing February away.
Spring is my favourite season, but I know once it is here it will seem to be gone in a flash, so I'm trying not to hurry the year along.
Besides, there are signs of spring and it's only the 5th week of the year. How lucky are we. Here are my simply seasonal moments from the past seven days.
1 ♥ New growth. My tulips look like they are going to be good again this spring. I planted these in late 2016 and the were fab last spring, but I'm not sure they will keep being so good. Time will tell.
2 ♥ Indoor Flowers. While you are waiting for the garden to burst back into life it's so cheering to enjoy spring's beauty indoors. A £1 bunch of Daffodils and a 50p primula give me so much pleasure for so little.
There were big puddles, but look, blue sky too
Yay, the colours of winter are beautiful with added sunshine.
and Snowdrops :0)
I really enjoyed ITV's programme highlighting Britain's favourite walks. In the U.K. you can still watch it on catch up. It was interesting for anybody who likes hearing inspiring stories and looking at beautiful scenery.
Ordnance survey maps have listed all the walks HERE if you would like to see them. I do hope I can walk a few of those which are new to me someday.
I'm now in my 4th year of doing the challenge to walk 1000 miles over the course of the year and this year I have joined Ilona's virtual walking group HERE. You check in on the first of each month with your mileage....it's another way to keep myself motivated.
7 ♥ New Yarn. I received a small Sylecraft delivery through the post this week (My LYS does not sell it, sadly) Turquoise, cloud blue and Duck Egg for my Giant Granny square blanket...plus White and Stone to replenish my stocks. I do love these colours together.
Stay cosy if you are in the northern hemisphere lovelies.
Chat next week ♥
