The Amarillus in March


In my opinion March has got to be the ugliest month of the year.

It's late winter, not spring

Everything outside is brown, grey dead and it's cold, in other words not much is going on.

It's too early for any kind of real gardening to be done , the ground is still frozen, the snow has melted,

 and we're just left in a state of limbo.

Luckily I have my Amarillus 

They were planted in February, and are in bloom now, in March 

Take a look

The snow angels

Spring is coming which is a good thing because I'm becoming a crafter. 

Not a bad thing actually, now I have a collection of home made Angels for my Christmas tree, and for gifts.

and we all need some Angels in our lives right now

The Ice Lanterns part 2

Here's another look at the 'Ice Lanterns' I made simply by filling balloons with water and setting them outside to freeze,

I moved them to my fountain which already had a set of LED lights in them, and fell in love with the way the photo's came out.

Our temperatures are supposed to finally be above freezing this week, so this may be the last go-round for the lanterns, but boy! did I enjoy them , mostly from the warmth of my house mind you.

This will defiantly be a project that I will do again in the future. A great addition to the 'Winter Garden'

It's kind of weird, but now I look forward to freezing the weather!







This we like, enjoy the season

The Ice Lanterns pt. one

I filled balloons with water and set them outside. My first attempt at ice lanterns.

I got the idea from Instagram, and I love the results.





The photo's were taken at different times of the evening, and are illuminated by small battery operated candles


I have since moved them to a fountain in the garden and now they are lit with LED lights that produce no heat. Those photo's coming in a future post.


I'm usually not one who does icy, wintery, cold things,

I rather enjoy the comforts of a warm house. Thankfully these can be enjoyed from the inside as well, and from a window.

This we like! Enjoy the season!

Stay warm
