Snow

Standard

Many countries have had lots of snow and really cold arctic temperatures.

I have seen beautiful snow pictures from other bloggers.

Here in London,

we had it cold (as it seemed for us) but not bitter cold

and little snow like a dusting some days.

Here are my only impressions from the Winter.

On my walk to work, I liked these

It is lovely to see the little snow crystalls.

 

 

 

Spring is in the Air

Standard

My dear friends,

thank you for all your prayers and good wishes

I am honoured to have such wonderful friends.

I feel much better and

I am back at work, taking it easy though.

Walking to work,

I see little daffodills trying to come through.

What a joy to see.

I can hear birds singing and chirping,

What a joy to hear.

I am very grateful to be able to experience the first signs of Spring.

Nature brings new life and is healing.

Enjoying these little beauties make me feel happy.

Do you have any signs of Spring where you live?

 

My Christmas cactus

Standard

Last year in December I bought a Christmas Cactus as a gift for someone.

Before I could give it, all buds fell off so I kept it.

Over Spring Summer and Autumn I left it outside in the garden.

In September I noticed that it is forming many buds.

When it got colder in November I took it in.

Watching it every day with joy the buds got bigger.

Today is a very happy day!

They are opening:

 

 

What wonderful display, a beautiful red!

I am so overjoyed.

 

Flowers do make the world laugh!

My plants

Standard

My blogger friends post ,made me look for my successes in my indoor plant world.

I used to kill many plants before either water them too much or not enough.

I seem to have learned a bit.  Now I am more successful.

I do love my indoor plants and enjoy seeing them grow.

See how this plant grew since January

and now:

My Plumeria indoors loves the window:

My little fig tree is adding more

and another ficus plant has grown more than 10 cm.

I am overjoyed with my greenery

and enjoy every single leaf.

 

 

 

 

Short Retreat

Standard

During this beautiful hot weather in Britain

I went for a short retreat

to Norfolk to Thetford Forest.

Our accommodation was very secluded, and really amazing.

 

So quiet and peaceful.

This is so recommendable, just relax and chill.

The Lynford Arboretum just next door,

perfect for our evening walks… trees everywhere.

We did lots of walking in the forest and at Lynford Waters.

At night. as there was no light pollution at all,

we even saw shooting Stars from the Perseid Meteor shower.

Even a short getaway is a great rest and energy giver.
