March Posy

Monday, 4 March 2013



Crocuses, primrose, lenten roses (hellebore), snowdrop, forsythia and a miniature daffodil.


All with their own individual charm but coming together to make a posy of loveliness.
Not unlike the twelve blog ladies who gathered together on Saturday to make a posy of sock knitting, cake eating, coffee drinking, patchwork piecing, gift giving, story-telling and crochet hooking all tied up with a big ribbon of laughter and friendship.


This posy is especially for them. Thank you ladies for a wonderful, wonderful day.


And to everyone who reads this blog please enjoy the flowers, it really is starting to look a lot more like spring and lot less like winter and that is surely something to celebrate.

  5. What lovely flowers! Honestly, you arrange them so perfectly and I just love all these colours. Enjoy your spring. We seem to be backtracking to winter here.

  6. Mark today as the day I officially became weary of winter. We have mountains of snow, and no flowers whatsoever. Thank you for the cheer.

  7. Absolutely lovely, thank you, Sue for the flowers! Been quite glorious here too, today, if a trifle chilly - but I can put up with that.

    And next week I shall be sitting with my own circle of knitters and stitchers, round my table, nattering, drinking tea and coffee and no doubt scoffing the odd calorie-laden offering! It's all good, isn't it, when you look on the bright side?

  10. Beautiful Sue. Spring colour at last. And Spring weather, even down here. My first day out on the soil since (probably) September. Feels good doesn't it?

  12. The flowers are beautiful. I'm very jealous!!!! We just had over 20cm. of snow over the last 24 hours. It will be a long time before we see any signs of life poking there heads out from under the snow. As our house faces north we don't usually see our front lawn until well into May. Sigh. I'll just have to keep reading all the blogs in warmer climates to get my garden fix.

  13. I have been trying to match socks to owners as I roved around the Saturday gathering posts. Very heart warming, as is your posy.

  19. Gorgeous posy :D

    I do envy you twelve ... I see the tweets start to appear about train times and pick ups and I think how wonderful it must be to gather with like minded bloggers for a few fun filled, crafty hours :)

  22. I volunteer at a beautiful walled nursery garden in Kent and today, three cheers, I actually worked in shirt-sleeves! Glorious sunshine and the bluest of blue skies! Last week in thermals, a padded jacket, neckwarmer and wrist-warmers... This is why English people talk about the weather all the time because it's so dramatic in its changes...
    Lent lilies, or lenten lilies are actually wild daffodils; your little bouquets are so beautiful...

  23. You are of course right Anna, thank you -I mean Lenten Roses. I will edit my post (hate having mistakes).
