My poor Magnolia

Look at the date! My poor magnolia is longing to bloom, but its still so bloody cold. Snow flurries and hail last night. Today 3 degrees with a wind chill 0f -7. Usually it is here in full fig for my birthday (tomorrow) but not this year. A few bulbs, like the aliums are trying to push up. the forsythia is frightened to do anything. So depressing

But, see this very pretty soutache work on an Edwardian collar (in my etsy shop) I have never had one like it.

and of course, Oliver will always brighten my day.


  1. Oh, what a sweet little face! :)

  2. Our magnolias are all over here in the UK - another couple of weeks and the peonies will be out.

    Heh, you have a cute baby!

  3. My friend in Barrie tells me it's still very cold, you must be so fed up with it by now.
    It's not helped when people tell you what the weather is like over here.
    Happy Easter weekend

  4. Thanks for visiting my blog! Yours is lovely (and I feel your pain over the magnolias...we had a hard frost last night—midwest U.S.—and I worry that the apples and other flowering trees are done for). Also love your textiles...a woman after my own heart. Cheers!

  5. Happy birthday, even if it IS minus your magnolias. I would sing, but I have it on good authority that you REALLY don't want me to!

  6. Oliver is just such a cutie ;~D
