If on a Winters Night…

When the sun doesn’t rise high in the sky and the nights draw in all you want to do is curl up in front of a roaring fire wrapped in chunky blankets, glass of port in hand and read a good book.   Other nights you find your mind wandering to balmy summer days when you spend time in the garden, I am no horticultural goddess but I do like to potter in my little plot when the sun shines.

As my garden goes to sleep at this time of the year and everything has an earthy hue, my house seems to come alive with flowery blooms be it in print or in a vase.  It somehow brightens those dark days of winter and reminds you that spring isn’t that far away.

When mid winter is finally here you can still see a little sunshine even in a teacup.
