I am celebrating mid winter with the wonderful sight of fresh green shoots in my home.
Three little pots of narcissi on the mantel, sitting in their colourful hooky tins....
....and a stripy bowl of hyacinth bulbs on the table.
A glass jar of daffodils too, just for extra good luck.
They make the grey, dismal weather seem slightly less grey and dismal.
The make my messy home seem slightly less messy.
They remind me that although we are in the depths of winter, today there is ever so slightly more daylight than there was yesterday.
