    Beautiful details, Mo, and a lovely view of your winter window. Looks like a healthy Hoya outside the window, too.

    Lovely display! Is that rose “Love Potion”?

    • Mo Crow says:

      it’s a bit shriveled from being picked and left on the dashboard for a few hours before getting home & into a vase, the name escapes me, it’s something French & has the best perfume!

    Your window looks so pretty Mo….so soft. What is the little blue flower Mo…I like blue in the garden.

    • Mo Crow says:

      it’s a forget me not, grows like a weed when it’s happy, surprisingly our best bed is facing west under the canopy of a Magnolia,they die back in mid summer but thrive in the cooler months

    ahhh, very pretty, adore forget me nots. Hugs and commiserations, better luck with the next try. ox

    • Mo Crow says:

      love how they can make a lovely easily managed ground cover in winter when so many of the perennials have gone to ground & fingers x-ed for a NAVA grant next year.

    Cyclamen and sea stars….looks like spring to me.

    • Mo Crow says:

      there was a taste of spring in the air on the weekend with the first jasmine and Magnolias in full flight but the southerly wind brought the cold back this week

    just love the dangly bits hanging from your window….and such pretty flowers.

    • Mo Crow says:

      made the curtain back in 2009 from a bundle of lace scraps & one of the good things about gardening for a living is we get to take home all the prunings, that was the last rose for the mid winter hard prune and the forget me nots needed to be pulled away from the roses to let them breathe!

    A beautiful frame for sunlight … I’ll bet you’re looking forward to spring every bit as much as we’re looking forward to fall!

    • Mo Crow says:

      we need the spring warmth, my hands are in such a state from the cold, I shouldn’t sit on the heater but on the really cold nights I do and then I get chill blains on my fingers and toes… and you will laugh at what we think of as really cold, 6˚C (42.8˚F) which only happens a couple of times just before dawn in the whole winter but this morning feels like one of them, both Ariel & I are enjoying the heater here at 2am!
