Daffodil Yellow...

Storm Doris skipped over Prunella's Patch with fortunately no damage.

This very morning when Prunella was pottering around her garden she was delighted to spot her first daffodil of the season...

Yellow is such a happy uplifting colour.
It's bright colour attracting the bees and hover flies buzzing around...

One even decided to do a little wire walking... 

 What could be more enjoyable than just hanging around enjoying the Sun's warm rays.

 ♥ Spring is just around the corner
Until the next time,
 stay safe, happy and healthy.
Hugs to all.

Down in the Dumps...

Prunella was feeling rather glum. The Winter had been so depressingly long, exceptionally chilly, and very damp.
Prunella had a severe case of SAD (seasonal affective disorder) or a case of the winter blues. 
There had been far too many grey dismal days that she hid herself away in an old shoe box and wallowed in her own self pity feeling thoroughly miserable.

So unlike Prunella Pepperpot as she was normally such a cheerful little soul exuding a warm glow from within that would brighten even the dullest of days and warm the cockles of your heart.
Believe it or not, what bothered Prunella most was the fact that in Prunella's Patch there had been no significant snowfall. The odd snowflake yes of course, but nothing that settled to give her garden that special magical glistening carpet of crisp white snow she so longed for. 
 Why you may ask?
She had long dreamt of lying down flat on her back on top of soft powdery snow, arms outstretched creating her very own snow angel.
Her grass was covered in ice, far too hard to make any impression, much as she tried!

 On this particular day in February, Prunella was sat gazing out of her kitchen window wondering what today had in store, when out of the blue flew her friend Hermon Heron.
He landed rather clumsily in Ed the Red Kite's favourite conifer tree overlooking Prunella's garden.
He knew there were tasty pickings to be had in the neighbours' pond!
Ed was unmoved.



This was indeed a pleasant surprise, enough in fact to make Prunella smile widely, dust off the cobwebs and go outside to enjoy some invigorating fresh air.
She may not have the snow drifts she wished for but her garden was carpeted in beautiful drifts of pure white snowdrops.

If that wasn't enough to lift her spirits she was delighted to see her Christmas Rose in full bloom.

Suddenly a little light bulb went off in her head and she rushed indoors muttering to herself,
"If I can't make my very own snow angel I shall create my very own flour fairy!" 

 Feeling much happier she decided to bake a cake since the flour was already close to hand.
Staying on a garden theme what could be more fitting than a deliciously moist Carrot Cake...

Cake anyone?

Until the next time, 
stay safe, happy and healthy. 
Hugs to all.

Prunella and the Fungi...

  During the month of November Prunella has been out and about spotting colourful fungi, soft green mosses and ferns... ...
