I bought Christmas chocolates in the sale! (It’s part of my Joyful January strategy…)
It hailed, and turned the rooftops white for a couple of hours as if it had snowed.
Warming chicken stew and mash. Proper winter comfort food!
I definitely bought this one because of the can art…
Filled my new trinket shelf with some of my treasures from nature.
It’s got a lichenry!
My veg seeds arrived from realseeds.co.uk – I’m super excited to try some new varieties!
Husband made dinner. He is learning and I am proud of him…
My orchid has been flowering for five months now!
It’s been another week of gorgeous hoar frosts and sunshine.
Went to a garden centre and walked in a tree fern forest.
My friend wanted winter jasmine.
We looked at the fish in the aqua centre!
It’s another world down there…
I love this guy!
What a handsome shirt!
Sometimes I wonder why my fascination with weird nature doesn’t particularly extend to sea life. And then I realise that if it did, I really wouldn’t get anything done.
A group of turtles is called a bale.
The label said ‘cultured yellow toadstool’ but I’m pretty sure it’s coral.
At the community garden I started a list of all the animal species I could spot. I saw 23, which I think is pretty good for January! There was one mammal (squirrel), three birds, five insects (two flies and three springtails) and the rest were other invertebrates.
Now I know that there are blue springtails.
This spider shone green in the sun! It’s light diffraction caused by the fine hairs on its abdomen.
Also in the community garden, the hellebores and snowdrops are coming out!
