Flowers and Tea Cozy Versus the Blizzard
If you live in New England, chances are you experienced some snow this weekend due to the Nor'Easter that hit today. It could have been worse so I won't complain. At least we have reason to wear our woolies in the frozen weather. Due to these frigid conditions I thought some flowers were needed to perk us all up. My amaryllis displayed her colorful finery at our house. Thanks to a dear friend I also enjoyed some outstanding tulips. We need this boost of color!!!
Another savior of the February freeze was my sighting of numerous cardinals late this week in the wooded grounds where I work.. The darling males sat puffed up and reddened in the cold sun of Friday afternoon while the brown-red females chirped with their golden sunset beaks! It was all too much to absorb...this glorious riot of warm colors in a barren landscape.
I've been remiss in posting this week so I offer my tea cozy. Perhaps I post about my work on the incomparable Odessa by Grumperina soon......
