Very cold this morning...by my standards anyway. I say that because from some of the comments I get and during my Blogarounds I find so many places in the world that are -10 to -20! The sound of window scraping rang through the air as neighbours attempted to clear their windscreens before setting off to work
But as the sun rose the frost soon melted and indoors, "behind glass" our living room seems lovely and warm.Outside though, where our pond is in the shade, there is still a sign of the frozen water. I'm glad I've left the pump running and popped a spare cloche over one end I don't want our poor fish gasping for air!
I had a little Blogaround while Mick was having his after breakfast doze; visiting a few blogs of "new" commenters. I came across one that also had an art blog. Now I'm not particularly artistic as far as painting or drawing goes; but I do enjoy looking at other peoples works. My favourite well known artist is William Blake. Our friend Fran once gave me a booklet of Blake reproduction postcards....well I'm never going to have the real thing am I? Back to what I was saying; I found Salix Trees art blog. Her work is breathtaking and particularly appeals to me. I'll just show you one example here but please go and look at the others she has posted.
Isn't it beautiful? Her art blog is SALIX ART.
While I'm on the subject of art; if you haven't already seen it please check out my plea...Art, Art, Wherefore art thou Art
I did some cooking this morning; one way of warming up the kitchen! I had a jar of Strawberry and Champagne Conserve in the cupboard that we received in a hamper at Christmas. I thought I try some of it in the base of a Bakewell tart
It'll go down nicely at lunchtime.
