Spring is about, yes spring, it may not feel like it from the weather we have had lately, but today I noticed bunches of snowdrops flowering by the gate, and literally hundreds of bulbs peeking up from the ground. The hens (as seen on the header photo) have been all too aware that since the 21st December there has been extra daylight each day. So in tune with nature they have been laying since christmas eve. Nice big brown eggs with bright orange yokes. The cock plays his part too. I am so proud of their achievements.
Our neighbours have a peacock and I found a feather near their gate on a recent walk.
I love jugs, I have been collecting them for years, there is something really nice about filling them up with milk, water, juice, wine, and placing them on the table during meal times. They have pride of place on one of the dressers in the kitchen.
Blue is my favourite colour and I seem to gravitate towards blue ceramics. It is the shape too that just gets me. The collection looks good together but can also be used to put bunches of flowers in and they look so pretty around the house.
I am a community worker I was working full time until my cancer diagnosis in October 2013. I have been interested in crafts all my life. I am always knitting or sewing. I love the different seasonal crafts and spending time with family and friends.
