Sunbeams, Hyacinths and Winter Sky

22 Nov

1   Just for a few moments this morning, sunlight found the slim trunks of our Himalayan Birch and made them glow.

2   I have ‘planted’ some hyacinth bulbs in water in the beautiful old glasses that were my Mum’s. She planted them up every year for flowers for my birthday and the New Year which is what I am aiming for. They are now all in a dark cupboard.

    Your weeping blue cedar looks to be a really gorgeous plant.

    It is amazing how a bit of sun can change one’s feeling and attitude. We are having 4-5 days of doom and gloom here. Bah Humbug!

      It’s gone dull again here too but I’ve spent the morning baking so I don’t mind too much! 🙂
