Last year I bought two packs of tulips one lot crazy fuzzy edged pink ones and these GLORIOUS red parrots. The fatblackcats has a habit of nibbling at tulip stems (Don’t ask can’t see the attraction myself) so I brought in 3 blooms and put them in a glass in my kitchen and for days I was cheered by them. Probably one of my best buys last year.
Grateful that a flying visit to the post office to post off parcels for neices’ birthday was a dry trip. I even saw a few crocuses making their trembling debut in Gayfield Square. Lets hope its the coming of spring.
Adore the colours in this picture (another by Anne Redpath). I’d love to make a blanket using these colours. Today lovely and sunny and dry so made it to the Farmers market and a mini round of social events and as a result am wiped out. Retiring to bed with the crochet.
