The only thing I had to really put any great effort into was knitting some co ordinating flowers .
So with a ball of string in hand I started knotting and stitching the scraps of fabric and pieces of ribbons on to the string , then I embellished the garland with buttons and Knitted flowers .
Hey presto !! one hit of springtime colour and best of all it didn't cost me a penny !! In fact it makes my heart sing and cheers me up no end when I walk in the kitchen and catch site of it .
The other good thing about this moment in time is we are now half way through winter , things are only going to get better . I have had my fill of deep colours ( which normally are my kind of thing !) and no longer want the heavy spicy scents of this season filling my nose. I am craving light , fresh colours and sweet delicate scents. To help with this transition period I have introduced some beautiful winter plants to give he a hit of things to come !
mini Roses , soooo sweet !
Wow what a intense little hit of yellow form this Narcissus , which opened this afternoon .
I can't wait for the blue Hyacinths to bloom and hit me with their heady scent .
As I glance back over the last year I have realised I have been blogging for a full years now . I started a year ago on boxing day and what year !
I wait in eager anticipation for the year ahead but I will refrain from making New Year resolutions or predictions , what will be will be !!
May I wish you and yours a Very Happy New Year
I hope to see you more frequently in the year ahead as I have lots of new ideas I would like to share with you . I have thoroughly enjoyed bogging this last year and it's great when people pop by .
So ta ta for now . xx
