Sunshine!

Just as I began to think the sunshine would never show its cheery face again today we have bright blue skies and the very first crocuses have opened up as the sun warms their petals! I had to share these with you, yes in this part of the world there is hope, Spring is on its way!


Right back to work, custom bear, embroidery pattern creation, new illustrations being sketched..... Lots to share soon, Catherine x

Such pretty spring blooms! All is buried in snow here but I remain hopeful! I love the LOVE month so I am accepting the snow. Can't wait to see the new things you are creating!

Our rain comes in winter, summer is very dry and everyone looks forward to the rains. O course we don't get snow but a few days ago we had our first autumn rains and everything is beginning to turn green, our flowers will be in full bloom early this year I think. You take really good pictures by the way. God bless, Geoff.

Lovely pics Catherine - so pretty. I have just been down the garden to pick an apple twig for Humphrey (not that he is grateful - he wants toast) and saw snowdrops and other little flowers poking their heads out :)

Beautiful photos Catherine.

We are having the odd day here and there of sunshine in the UK!

Spring is certainly on it's way. Lovely to see things popping up in the garden.
