Blue Christmas

Winter has arrived with a frost last night and even though the 
sun shone all day we only had 10 degrees.
It has been very mild up till now and the early 
Wattle is coming out in bloom about a month early.
The broad beans I planted are coming through much to my delight.
They manage to grow through the cold.

Today I have a Christmas card to show you.

It was getting dark when I took the photo hence it is not very bright.
I stamped up a few Christmas stamps for my daughter to 
colour in whilst she is in hospital having treatment.
She has to sit there for 8 to 10 hours so it helps to pass the time for her.

Am sharing this with.

Thanks for dropping in you are most welcome.

  3. Hi Margaret
    Lovely festive creation.
    Wish my broad beans were doing as well as but no beans! Cucumbers, tomatoes, radishes, chillies and peppers all doing well though lol!
    Keep warm and well and hope your daughter will be ok.

  4. A beautiful frosty looking Christmas card Margaret. It's hard to imagine frosty weather when we've been sweltering here over the past few days.

    I am so sorry to hear that your daughter is having to go through treatment in hospital. I wish her well. I'm sure she will be pleased to have some colouring in to do to help pass the time. Hugs, Barbxx
