Winter sunshine is also that much more special, so I try to get outside to enjoy it as much as possible.
Things take on a different look too. Like the frosty mornings - love how everything sparkles - even if there isn't much colour in a leaf - it's got some great shapes to appreciate.
Primroses are darlings too - tuck them in any dry or rocky spot & they'll survive with minimal care. Again, another plant that if protected from too much rain or soggy soil & able to warm up during the day, will flower right on through winter.
I'm still not finished with all the garden chores - there are a few plants that need to be cut back & other random tasks to be done, but for now, I'll just enjoy the sunshine & the frost as it melts.
We'll see what this week brings - I can tell there is a storm brewing because we are holding our community Craft Sale on Saturday & it's tradition to have snow & a power outage on that day! Well, it just wouldn't feel very festive if it were sunny & warm, now would it?
