(Almost) Wordless Wednesday

A few snippets from the past week or so.

A "grow your own" mushroom kit hubby got for Christmas.  They seemed to double in size every day!

Bread and butter pudding.  Yummy comfort food :)

Amazing patterns on my frosty car yesterday.

Bye for now

Flower Collages

I've loved looking at the yearly review posts that lots of you clever bloggers have put together.  Like lots of patchwork quilts, the images seem to combine to make even more wonderful pictures and give a lovely reminder of the year or month gone by.
Here's my first effort at collages using some of my favourite flower pictures from last year.  I used 
Pic Monkey and found it very simple, even for a techno duffer like me! 
 It's surprising how colourful the garden was last year, considering how little gardening I did!  Apart from the greenhouse plants all the rest just look after themselves and it's always a joy to see them return.  I hope you enjoy my little review of 2013.

I've been shopping and treated myself to some tulips to brighten the place up...

Picking a very late rose from the garden...

Tidying away the decorations and wondering what to do with the orange slices, until I saw how pretty they look with the sun shining through them, so left them hanging on the curtain pole for now.

And making the most of the precious sunshine to capture a bit of colour before the clouds roll in again!

Bye for now
