Sparkles, chills and flying fancies!
We woke up this morning to an unexpected white world again, a beautiful pure pure white glistening in the winter sun like a million delicate diamonds. Whilst all the neighbours were madly shoveling it all away, moaning that it is snowing again, I wrapped up warm and sat out on my garden bench to savour this beauty Yes they probably would think I was mad, but I reckon I know who the mad ones are! All the seedheads that I left on my plants were adorned with little white bobble hats! The birds were grateful for the food I give them, they especially love my recycled Christmas Tree! We bought one with roots and instead of just throwing it away after Christmas I put it out on my patio and decorated with seed balls, they think it's great! It looks especially lovely today all edged with white. I sat so quietly that eventually my deer Robin came right up close so I got some wonderful photos, even this one with him just flying off! I get so excited when I capture just the right moment.
Now all back in the warmth, I feel energised from the fresh air and appreciating these little things that I'm ready to carry on with my new Bear. His pattern pieces are sewn up, he can see and today he will get a new nose and ears! So he'll be ready to say hello very soon. Wishing you all fun days whatever the weather! Hugs, Catherine x
