Attractive Handmade Decorations for the Home

In the bleak mid-winter

Every day I pop outside into the back garden to go into my summerhouse to pick up my work supplies, and very rarely do I stop to have a look at the garden – firstly because I haven’t got time, and secondly it’s just tooooooo cold.

Well, today was different. I was so pleased as my little primrose’s I planted back at the end of August are still flourishing. As silly as it sounds, it made my heart skip – for a number of reasons. You see, as much as I like Christmas I struggle getting through the winter months, and as I get older I resent the winter months even more. Primroses signify spring, birds’ singing, bulbs and those much awaited longer days. Don’t get me wrong, I’m certainly a ‘glass is half full’ kinda girl, but boy seeing those primroses this morning really did lift my mood.

Isn’t it amazing that despite nature going into hibernation, you can still get glimmers of colour.

I salute you, primroses!

  • Hello Sarah
    Snap! I’ve just been out in the garden and noticed several plants flowering away, including the primroses. Isn’t it beautiful? Amidst all the grey skies and sodden-sponge-like soil the garden is still offering us colour and beauty.
    Thank you for sharing!

    I am with you on this one – I am normally an optimistic sort of person but like you I struggle in the winter months and something like these pretty flowers makes me smile. If they can manage to be so cheery out in the cold, damp, dark winter days why am I finding it so hard?!

    Thanks for sharing with us.

    I can see your pink shelves up there at the top! Tee hee!!!
    At the green grocers today I saw daffodils, tulips & primoses for sale ~ a little bit of spring in the winter months.
    I know what you mean I do love winter but each passing year it seems to get colder & colder!
    love
