Spring – time to think about harvesting something you planted last year that’s been looking after itself all Winter. The spring onion for example. White Lisbon are my favourite. We have them growing in an old pot sink and the green and white look stylish together. No reason to drop your standards just because it is not something you are actually wearing!
It is the life of the crystal, the architect of the flake, the fire of the frost, the soul of the sunbeam. This crisp winter air is full of it.” – John Burroughs
Welcome to my 2020 Advent KAL—short for knit-along—I’ve decided to bring this forward to Thursday 5 November given the impending lockdown. I’m hoping it will be something to help us all look forward!
‘Lamb’ was a very popular Spring word you gave me. It got me thinking about all the usual lambs depicted at this time of year. The cute fluffy white ones, the occasional white one with a black face, the ones on cards and as soft toys. So then I thought, when was the last time…
Spring wouldn’t be Spring without a daffodil or a poem about them!
A few of you sent the words ‘sunshine’. After such a long wet winter some Spring Sunshine would be amazing. Quite fitting then that there’s a lovely Spring flower, a narcissus called Spring Sunshine.
Day 17 – Spring is sprung! We are nearly there and if it is all right with you we’ll have a day to take stock and I’ll add a day on to the end to make up for the fact there is no pattern today.
