It's that time of year again. I am longing for spring.
So badly, I went out and bought myself some flowers. Aren't these nice?
This is what it actually looks like outside. Only, the fog keeps getting thicker.
I decided to take a look around the garden to see if I could find some clues - some signs that spring might be on its way.
Moss growing on a branch of the old pear tree in my yard. Well - it's green.
Buds swelling on the wisteria. I'd say that is a sign.
Lichen on a piece of very old fence. It's green, but not a sign.
My cats are ever helpful. Casanova and Kiki: "Whatcha find? Can we eat it?"
But no sign of spring here.
While I write this, Captain has jumped up on my lap to have a snuggle - ahem, I beg your pardon - he is watching out to make sure I don't get attacked by mice while at the computer. How thoughtful of him (not that I have ever had that problem...)! Now if I just had longer arms!
Hasel buds - still very tight. Not spring yet.
High up in the cherry tree - I can see the buds getting bigger. Can you see them? Definitely a sign - but it's not saying when.
What else have I been up to?
My very first attempt to play with the enamels I recently ordered. These are torch fired and the colour is supposed to be purple. Just a couple of wires with ball ends and enameled. A first try. Not very spectacular looking. But exciting!
Some more resin components I have been working on...
As for spring, I will have to console myself by looking at this magazine, while I wait for her to arrive.
