December 29, 2014 Christmas in England….. by Karen B SOOTHED by the stillness of frosty, sun-sparkly days in-between the magic of Christmas and the excitement of a new year, these deep blue Hyacinths, the colour of sky and sea, make me yearn for Spring.

Soothing, attractive colours.
Thank you so much and compliments of the season to you!
Beautiful! Hope you had a good Christmas and our love and very best wishes for the new year xxxx
Thank you so much Sarah. I ate out in a restaurant on Christmas Day, which was good. Happy New Year to you both, my dear friends. x x x
What a great photo, Karen! When you write about frosty, sun-sparkled days, I can just imagine how beautiful Dartmoor must be this time of year!
Thank you so much Kerry. You are so right, Dartmoor is so beautiful in this fabulous, clear, sunshine and crisp light. I did a huge walk yesterday and just as the sun was setting all the bracken on the Tors just glowed a warm. burnt orange. I must take my proper camera. What I need though, is a sherpa to carry it!
Lovely! Isn’t it great God made seasons?! Just when we’re tired of the one we’re in we have another one coming around the corner!
Yes, you are so right. I am off outside in the frosty sunshine to plant my Tulip bulbs now! Those flowers are true miracles of colour and form.
Beautiful colors! I also miss spring. Spring flowers are gorgeous! ❤
Your sense of colour, texture and composition are a joy to behold.
What a lovely picture.
Thank you so much Cynthia.
I love the cushion and its little red bobble braiding along the edge and the fact that it so celebrates being British. It is such fun styling objects for a photo and I feel so happy doing it. I suppose it is a way of composing a perfect little scene, in an imperfect world! And I so wanted to celebrate those flowers and how nice they looked with the snow sprinkled cones.
That’s really beautiful, Karen. I love hyacinths, too. All the best for 2015, regards Mitza
Thank you so much Mitza. I know how much you love flowers. Just the thought of them lifts our spirits, I know you feel that too.
I send you every good wish for 2015!
One really good thing about winter is that spring is guaranteed to come next and lighten our spirits with new flowers and sunny days.
This Winter I have adopted a new strategy to cope with the Winter Blues- I have walked in the forest or on the moors everyday, whatever the weather. When I was working I could not do that. It has worked so well for me and I have embraced the elements. I have seen the owls fly over my path at dusk, a baby Badger run right up to me and the Fox slink across the fields. It has been marvellous!
Yes. I too love to talk in the wild any season. Winter has its special charm.😌
