Winter Flower, Miniature Bouquet and Banana Loaf

1   Walking up from town in a fierce but warm wind, I noticed some little Periwinkles flowering.

2   As we arrived home our neighbour called in with belated Birthday presents, one  a beautiful miniature bouquet of flowers from her garden today. I have put them into a tiny painted glass jug that my Dad once dug up in the garden where we lived briefly in Birmingham. I was only 5 years old and fell in love with it so it became mine. It suits this delightful bunch of Daisies, Primroses, a Violet, a tiny Campanula and some leaves just perfectly.

3   I have made a Healthy Banana Loaf this afternoon to wean us off the rich Christmassy food as we try to lose seasonal accumulated pounds!  Recipe to follow soon.

To all my friends and family who are experiencing extremes of weather – stay safe, stay warm, stay happy.
