Spring Day, Flowers and SallyBoots

08 Apr

It has been a glorious Spring day – blue skies, sunshine and warmth!  Let’s hope it lasts. We have worked in the garden all day and it is looking better!

Look how warm it has been today!

Can anyone identify this for me, please? They are about 30cms tall.

I knitted some booties for a young friend’s first baby and today I received this photo of her very beautiful daughter wearing the SallyBoots.

    I see you have already had ID on the flower. They are gorgeous. According to my car the temperature outdoors was around 13 degrees which is still good. Must be a micro climate where you are!

    Don’t know the botanical name but Mum always called them Snowflakes…related to Snowdrops I think.

      Yes, they look like giant snowdrops. I love them. We bought them a couple of years ago, lost the label and they didn’t do much last year. This year they are just lovely. 🙂
