Welcome to my blog!
I hope you find something to inspire or enjoy. 🙂
This will be growing, and over the next few days I intend to post about One World, One Heart, and include my giveaway, so please check back if you’d like to join in with a chance to win something (I haven’t decided what I’m making yet! Really must get to it…)
I have a couple of other blogs if you’re interested (see the box to the right of this post that says ‘My Other Places’.)
Today we have snow!!! This is a rare and precious thing for Britain. Unfortunately we’re not quite able to cope with it! Ah well, I’m enjoying it muchly and have some pictures which I’ll be uploading shortly for your delectation.
I also took the plunge and, after 7 years of insisting I can’t keep pot plants alive, I bought some potted flowers, a red rose bush, and a yellow rose bush (both less than a foot tall) so now I really feel like the dreams I’ve had the past couple of nights (where I’ve insisted to other dream characters that I have a rose garden) are coming true! And this makes me very happy.
ROSES! And SNOW! Yay!
*is easily amused* 🙂

This is a postcard-quality phot, in my book. A looooooong time ago I used to buy a perfume at Woolworth’s (which we no longer have0 called Roses In the Snow. I’ve seen the British snow on television over here across the pond, so it must be a big deal! As I live in Colorado (ski country), we have snow one day and 60 degrees the next. Personally I love rain. :O)
Thanks Peace! I’d probably do some editing before I’d print it as a postcard, like getting rid of the flash reflection! But I like the picture too 🙂
Woolies closed down last month, for good. They managed 99 years of trading and then fell just short of hitting a century. Its strange to see them on the highstreet all dark and empty. “Roses in the Snow” is a lovely name for perfume though 🙂
Heh heh. Rain? We get tonnes here! In Wales especially. I moved into Wales from England 3 1/2 years ago, and I’d thought England was rainy! Wales gets it before England normally, coming off the ocean, and filters out at least half the rain, so if you like rain, come visit Wales! 🙂 It does have the benefit of makign everything very green, and you really, really appreciate the sun!
And yeah, I’m told this is the worst weather conditions we’ve had in 20 years, but I saw on someone’s blog that there was snow in South Texas last week, so I think it might be a worldwide thing!
What a beautiful view. I’d love to visit.
My daughters have been begging for snow but we live in Texas, so that will probably NEVER happen.
Thanks for sharing your blog.
What a pretty view. It doesn’t often snow here either, usually just ices. Ick. I cannot seem to keep any inside plants alive. I’ve even managed to kill cacti and bamboo (though the bamboo was due to a fungus or something outside of my control). Your roses look so lovely, best of luck with them.

I was told to water them once a fortnight, and I’ve had them less than a week, and watered them once, but they’re all dry and the leaves are starting to look unhappy… 😦 I gave them some more water today, I think I might go buy the Rose-care garden book I saw in the charity shop the other day. It was part of a set of 12 other gardening books so I left it, but maybe…
The snow is going now, leaving patches lying around for me to gaze at longingly!
