Look at the date! My poor magnolia is longing to bloom, but its still so bloody cold. Snow flurries and hail last night. Today 3 degrees with a wind chill 0f -7. Usually it is here in full fig for my birthday (tomorrow) but not this year. A few bulbs, like the aliums are trying to push up. the forsythia is frightened to do anything. So depressing
But, see this very pretty soutache work on an Edwardian collar (in my etsy shop) I have never had one like it.
and of course, Oliver will always brighten my day.
