It’s Friday already!

Already Friday and nearly another month, the weeks are flying by.

There have been gorgeous sunsets of late, I spotted this urban skyline on my way home from work.

There are early spring flowers in the garden, including these vibrant golden crocuses.

Healthy dinners, some mixed grains and lentils, with mushrooms and grilled halloumi, delicious and comforting on a cold evening.

A bit of hooking in the evening; a puff stitch hexagon in lovely pink lambs’ wool ( I found the pattern here, a lovely blog with lots of fab crochet)

The view across to the hills has been great of late, with snow on the hilltops

Just some peeks at the week that’s been ­čśä

 

2014 – review of the year

I’ve been looking back over this year and all the photos I’ve taken

In the garden

Crochet – 2 unfinished projects and some test squares below but they look lovely and colourful. I haven’t always had time to pick up my hook but I still love it when I do. I don’t make resolutions but I do intend to make more time for hooking in 2015!

Tulip of the day 1

My garden has been full of tulips for the last few weeks; they are one of my favourite flowers, and over the years I’ve been gardening, I’ve collected quite a few lovely varieties. I’ve been going out into the garden photographing their progress, so I thought it’d be nice to share these and see how the flowers bloom and flourish.

This one is called Spring Green, a beautiful, fresh tulip, with its variegated petals of off-white and green.
