Apparently it’s SPRING on Vancouver Island!! That’s Vancouver Island… as in British Columbia…CANADA. I know Vancouver Island is warmer than the rest of Canada but REALLY…SPRING?
Yup…my woolie friends, Claire and Glynis both are experiencing a warm front…and Spring Flowers!! Have a look…
Here are Glynis’ Spring like conditions…her warm front (in the form of wool on her lap) brought in strawberry flowers and fruit…and a dang sweet table mat!! Glynis made this for a ‘berry’ good friend…lucky lady!
And Claire is whipping up wool mats left right and centre…all ready for when those tweet birds REALLY do lay their eggs…
…and hatch into the sweetest Spring babies!
I KNOW that Victoria has a Flower Count at the end of February…but this is only January….
Claire may be jumping the gun a bit but she swears her real Spring bulbs have already sprouted and are showing two inches of stem! She is declaring an EARLY (mild) SPRING…and I have to agree with her…these Spring Flowers are delightful…The flower count has started…SIX gorgeous Spring Flowers to date…with more to come?
Are there any warm fronts in your corner of the world? Perhaps some Spring Flowers shooting up here and there?..a strawberry or two? …no tweet birds??
If you are anything like me, you are STILL stitching SNOWMEN…even though the temperature in the Palm Springs’ area is in the 80sF (over 26C)!! Too darn hot for SPRING…or stitching…
…but I’m NOT complaining ;o) Man…those California Strawberries are delicious and the pool is DELIGHTFUL!! Turn up that salsa music, will yah?…and pass the chips and dip!!
Have a FUN Friday and Happy Stitching!~P
