With the weekend came snow and another cold snap, but Mister Winter will soon be setting off, leaving the doors (and garden gates) widely open for a warmer breeze. I have brought in damson and black currant twigs to bridge the time until I can pick the first spring bloomers. The winter aconites are spreading small dashes of yellow all over the garden and the hellebore is getting ready for a solo under the rose bushes. Soon, soon I can pick the first spring snowflakes and grape hyacinths…

I spent yesterday sowing the first perennials and annuals for our garden. The tomato plants have to wait until March, but a lot of small pots have been filled with warm soil to make it extra cosy for all those flower seeds that have been waiting in small paper bags, boxes and jars during winter. For the coming weeks, they will be put on top of our fridge before I will move them outside to cold frames. And then hopefully, in a few months, they will fill all the bald spots in our garden with colours and scents…

I hope your start to the new week was a sunny one – sending you a fresh breeze and warm greetings from Björkåsa!


P.S. Tomorrow I will be posting photos of the two dolls I have finished today, one of the girls will be looking for a new home, so stay tuned!
