FIRST SIGNS OF SPRING!

When I went out to feed the fish this morning (can't believe they are still so active in December) I noticed the first sings of spring. First of all there was a Celandine in flower; don't usually see these until after the Snowdrops have bloomed and also the first bud on a Daffodil!!! I know my friend Sue always remarks that our daffodils are the first in bloom but BUDS in DECEMBER!!! I wonder if they will just stay in bud until the spring or will we have BLOOMS on Christmas Day!!





Must introduce you to our latest Christmas ornament. I was online the other day ordering some new thermal vests and long johns for Mick for Christmas (shhh.........don't let him hear!) and saw that the company had a SALE on. Well I spotted this Santa at only £3.99 and couldn't resist him.

I'm a sucker for a bargain!

P.S.

A quick update on the Camels Tails (see yesterdays post). The tails were "unstuffed" before the parents saw the nativity play so that the chidren could sit on them.........the tails that is not the parents!
