Hasn't the weather here in the UK been glorious over the pasted few days, it's leads me to hope a little, seeing all the trees in the garden springing into life and what am I hoping and wishing about, well believe it or not Bluebells.
It's been so cold and everything seems to be so far behind, but there is a little glimmer hope and possibility with this weeks warmer temperatures that I might get my wish, just maybe, might be. Just look at my
Just seeing that our lovely horse chestnut has gone from being in bud to leaf burst in just a few days gives me hope. I took this picture on Sunday afternoon, when I was having a sit out in the garden, and today, I took this photo.
In just three days we now have tiny baby leaves opening up. So let me tell you a little bit more about my wish. Way back in January when I was really struggling health wise, I decided that for my birthday this year I wanted to go on a adventure to a Bluebell wood. Not just any wood as that would be impossible for me but a Wheelchair accessible wood. So some on line research was done and a suitable bluebell wood found.
Job done we thought, plan in place, but mother nature had other plans, in sending us one of the coldest winter in the UK for so many years, meaning that all the plants are so far behind. My birthday is at the end of the week and so far, there are no bluebells out, white woodland anemones yes!! which I'm sure are beautiful but no Bluebells.
I've been wishing and hoping so hard that I've even been drinking all my cups of tea from my lovely hand painted Bluebell mug, sending out positive vibes to the universe. Of course I realise that, all this hoping and wishing might not work. Anyone who knows me, knows that my birthdays go famously wrong, but hopefully I've had my bad luck for this year, (nobody mention the cannelloni ).
There are so many positive signs out in the garden. Even the Cherry blossoms is out and I'm sure you've notice how gorgeous the flowering currant, looks in the picture earlier in this post.
So please join in with me thinking positive thought for Bluebells and I might just get my wish.
Before I go here's a quick sneaky peak at what I've been working on for the last few days, yes I know it all looks very much like a Christmas make, but rest assured it's not, quite the opposite in fact, think summertime !!!! and you'll be on the right tracks.
Any road I best be off.
