February Sampler


February turned out to be all pink and white. Very pleased with this one.

I am done with winter though. The days are lengthening, there are crocuses, hellebores and even a primrose blooming in my garden and there are buds on the quince tree.

March promises many good things. It begins with a day spent with blog friends and ends with Easter. In between I will become the mother of three teenagers (and by the end of summer I will be the mother of one adult).

I'm planning to join in with this photo challenge through March. I shall be using my phone and posting my pictures on Instagram so if you're an Instagrammer by all means follow me- thequincetree- and maybe join me.

Many thanks to those of you who suggested closing my comments to anonymous commenters to combat the spammers. I have done this and it has had an immediate effect -I was getting continual spam throughout the day and now it seems to have stopped.

    1. I swear I haven't! I do edit my photos -I use Picmonkey to crop and resize them and I also apply the auto-correct thingy but when I did that for the sunrise picture it actually looked less pink. Extraordinary colour.

  7. I cannot tell you how glad I am to see the official end of winter. Having said that, my last two months of photos are far from dull. Your mosaic is wonderful - my white hyacinths are all ready and waiting for you, spread along the conservatory windowsill, filling the house with their scent.
    See you tomorrow! Tx

  8. I love that when you look back on the photos of a month, it doesn't always look the way you thought it did. Rhubarb is a high point of February for sure!

    Like you, I'm done with winter. I can't remember the last time I just sat out in the garden and felt warm.

  10. Hello Sue, and a Happy First Day of March to you!

    I've just gotten caught up with your most recent posts, and...as usual, want to try some of your recipes. You truly do inspire me to try new ingredients.

    Glad to hear that you've found a manageable way to keep the spam at bay.

  17. Good to read here that your spam issue has improved. I may steal your idea if mine continues to drive me mad.

    Your sampler/mosaic is lovely. The colour remind me of sunrises and sunsets.
