In the midst of the frost we are now having the odd warm day and we can see the shoots beginning to nose out of the ground.
Because of last year's tulip fire we are not growing any tulips this year, so I shall have to be content with my second favourite spring flower - the snakeshead fritillary.
I love embroidering snakeshead fritillaries, though they are so detailed that they take ages - really too long to do as wholesale so they tend to pop up and disappear again on the website.
On Tuesday, as I have a few orders for them, I shall be devoting the morning to sewing a batch of A5 fritillary notebooks - so until then they are available here. After that they will probably disappear again for a bit!
We also do a matching card.
There are probably 6 weeks to wait till they bloom again here - I'm waiting with baited breath!
