Our blog is dedicated to seasonal living: cooking with local produce (sometimes our own), sewing for the home and searching out vintage bargains.

We believe that most of the pleasure is in the journey - in the making and creating, even if in a simple way.

Definite signs of spring

Snowdrops are such pretty little things.  The petals were still closed when I picked them, but after about half an hour of being in the house, they'd opened up...and the kitchen window seems as good a place as any to enjoy them
It's been a good day for messing about in the garden, doing a bit of clearing up.  I felt like Mary Lennox in The Secret Garden (only much older!), uncovering clumps of snowdrops from under mounds of leaf litter -  and having time to notice other plants attempting to flower.  
Yesterday we had a problem with the drains (not just yesterday actually, come to think of it, as it's been going on a while, but not something to dwell on, as you can imagine!)) so I needed to replant part of the border that had been disturbed.  At least it will soon recover.

  1. I shall pick a handful of snowdrops in the morning, I have plenty but somehow never think of cutting them and putting them in a vase!
