January mornings

I woke up this morning to a clear blue Lincolnshire sky and deep frost in the garden. Winter green sparkled with diamonds, seed heads were transformed into the most expensive jewellery designs...


In the vegetable garden my untidy ways, the not cutting back seed heads of majoram in the autumn made a lovely picture against the terracotta forcing pots which protect the rhubarb crowns...


Under the Bramley apple tree something magical had grown overnight,


a fairy ring of toadstools... wish those fairies would pop in and do some dusting as well as making beautiful installations in the garden...


There was an amazing scent from the mahonia bush, tiny little yellow bells for flowers, and in one corner a very brave and chilly looking primrose, the very first, made a pale wave towards spring. 




The pale spring coloured quilt is finished too, just waiting for it's new owner to arrive to delight his family. Here it is:





It is always lovely to hear what you have been making too, do join me and leave a message....
