It is only January, but here in the temperate rainforest of southwestern British Columbia, the garden is full of buds and one little e winter pansy has lifted its face to the sun.
This first spring blossom holds the promise of the warmer days to come and the opportunity to have my morning tea outdoors.
It’s been a crazy winter. I didn’t get around to potting up my geraniums and bringing them inside, but they didn’t die. We have had several days of good frost and even a couple of snow, but not enough to kill the geraniums.
This is an actual bird nest which I found on the walkway outside the house. The eggs are little plastic easter eggs that I painted, first with a couple of coats of gesso and then a couple of coats of pastel blue-mint homemade chalk paint.
