Winter Reading

 
 
We have had the strangest warm weather these past few days.
Here it is, the middle of winter, and the temperatures have reached a balmy 73 degrees yesterday, folks were running around town, in shorts and flip-flops !
My Iris shoots are popping up out of the ground, twelve inches tall already.
Next week we are in for a true taste of winter, temperatures down in the teens, so out come the scarves and gloves once again.
A good excuse to stay home, and indulge in a nice pot of tea and biscuits, and some rather lovely reading material.

Ykes! That is a huge temperature difference. I hope your plants don't wonder what happened to spring and go back into hiding. :-)

Crumbs as you know that's like a lovely summer day here. Think it's down to global warming despite what Señor Trump says. We are living in times of strange weather you never know what to wear. We get a horrible wet, cold & windy day next is much milder, sunny and not a cloud in the sky but not 73. Weird!

Yes! Tea and biscuits and a lovely magazine (or a good book) - possibly by the fireside - sounds perfect.

Oh my, I hope this doesn't hurt your plants. Sometimes the temps create havoc with my plants. The yard pictured on the magazine cover is just beautiful. You have a wonderful evening. Hugs, Edna B.

Every once in a while the British magazines are blended in with the bookstores magazine. I think it is a lot of fun. The garden ones as well as the art mags. are neat.

I love this magazine. I have been looking over older ones I have. Never tire of them.
