Last weekend we sounded the "trumpets"
for our birthday boy :
9 years old !
Blowing the candles
(and making a wish ... ?)
And there were other "trumpets" that I found here.
When I'm honest I must confess
that I'm not thát keen on tea cosies myself ...
Though I must really laugh when I see all those fun designs
Loani Prior comes up with :
she really is the Queen of tea cosies !!!
But these little trumpet flowers came with a free pattern
I simply hád to try
A little leftover Noro Kureyon Sock did the trick
lovely little trumpets !
In the garden we have lots of food for the birds,
they badly need it, in this snowy cold wintertime !
Sparrows, finches, all kinds of tits and the occasional robin,
blackbirds, starlings and turtledoves ...
While the water is frozen
the moorhens often seek a safe place high up on the pergola
... because there are cats wandering around on the ice !!!
(Aaaaah just too bad : all that snow makes the ice
unsuitable for skating ...)
