On Thursday the weather was pretty mild and no wind and rain so I decided to spend some time tidying in the garden. Got plenty done and have aching legs to prove it.
I have some snowdrops flowering and also lots of clumps of purple crocus which have freely seeded all over, including in the gravel on the drive. They looked so cheerful that I took a few pictures, although with my aching back and legs it was hard to bend far enough down!
When I got in I decided to do some tangling to relax. For inspiration I used the crocus and then last night I added the colour with some watercolour pencils. (The pot began life as Stackem from Helen’s patterns on her blog a little lime, but one mistake after another left me playing about with it to make it look something like!)
I enjoyed doing this and may well do something similar with other flowers as inspiration as the garden comes to life again.
