Wet and windy here today, the warm and sunny spring which we’ve just been getting used to has upped and left! My poor daffodils are getting blown about and I can already see some broken stems. I hate to see this. It’s as though they have spent all winter gearing up for their spring show only to be dashed by the wind!
I have lots of hyacinths flowering too, they have much sturdier stems thank goodness. They all began their lives in pots in the house at Christmas and were then moved into a spot in the garden where they can come up year after year. And they do. I must have 15 years worth of pots of hyacinths out there now.
This morning I was up early and had some quiet time to myself so I happily tangled. I’ve been thinking of working around another flower and when I did this week’s Diva’s challenge I couldn’t help thinking that the Sh-rock tangle looks a little like an individual hyacinth flower. I also took inspiration from Chrissie’s tangle on the One Little Word slide show which Laura posted this week on her I am the Diva blog. It reminded me of looking out of my window and seeing spring flowers, although this window is nothing like mine 🙂
I needed to make some cards today too. One will save until another blog post after the recipient has enjoyed it first. I went to my Pinterest boards for inspiration for the other two cards. It came from Dreaming about Rubber Stamps. These are my take on that card.
Finally I had rather a lot of bananas going uneaten this week so decided to make banana bread. I have only made muffins before so sought out a recipe. This is the one I used, the only change I made was to use gluten-free SR flour. We tried it when it was warm and it’s scrummy 🙂 Highly recommended.
Back to work tomorrow so that’s it until next week.
