Dozens of Daffodils, Cardigan and A Simple Supper

22 Mar

1   The streets of Carharrack, the village I go to for my piano lesson each week, are lined with daffodils, which even on the greyest and coldest of March days as this has been, make me smile.

    I miss the backyard of the house I used to live at – full of daffodils!

    Those flowers are all so beautiful, but that cardigan is the real treasure of this post. You did a great job, and it’s pretty awesome that the buttons have been in the family that long. It’s definitely something to treasure!

    I love the look of that stuffed tomato – I have only had them stuffed with a cold salad before – like shrimp salad. I’m going to have to look up a recipe for baked stuffed tomatoes for this fall when the tomatoes are ripe in the garden.

      We need to swap recipes then as I have never had tomatoes stuffed with shrimp salad! 🙂

    Liked every colorful photo…bright yellow flowers…variegated baby sweater and
    red tomato supper…
    all “beautiful”…
    I liked that you sewed the buttons with the different colors…

    Nice shots of the daffs – we are about four weeks further behind in Northumberland – their heads are still tight shut.

      We are certainly feeling lucky here at the moment hearing about the snow you are all enduring. We’ve had masses of rain and some flooding which is terrible for those affected, for the third time for some this winter but at least it’s mild. 🙂
