Winter Flowers

2 Feb

Last week was a toughy.  I bought myself some flowers to cheer myself up but then have been out at school leaving early and coming home late so I haven’t been able to enjoy them.  So I quickly took some photos this morning and before I ran out the house.  I got to the station just in time to squeeze through the doors as they shut, shew.  I don’t normally buy flowers but they are British and since I can’t comfort myself with sugar. Although I had a sneaky biscuit today when tea and biscuits were offered at a break.  Sitting in a university room without natural light for 7 hours, 6 hours sleep, running for the station and forgetting a purse at home will make a biscuit very tempting I will tell you.

Anyway, back to the flowers. I love how the middle one looks sort of ghost like.  And the bright spring colours. Definitely add a bit of cheer to the winter.

What do you do to cheer yourself up when days are tough?

    Beautiful flowers. I’m fond of a nice long walk to cheer myself up, or failing that, a nice hot bubble bath with an audiobook and a cup of tea.

    I’m having a mad busy time too just now. Wjat is up with January/February this year?! Hope next week is a bit more chilled for you x

    So ready for those wonderful spring flowers to pop up their green leaves through the blanket of winter we’ve had around her. I love to crochet. I’ve made wonderful bouqets of crochet flowers this winter to fill my vases until the real ones appear. Thanks for the lovely picture.
