Happy New Year!

I wish everyone on GoY a good gardening year, and a happier year to come :)

This is our Christmas tree (sorry about the shaky hand)

This lovely Hellebore fell into my basket on my last visit to the GC before lockdown :)


Our hole-in-the-wall ‘log’ fire which keeps us cheerful

‘Trees’ wall sculpture with tinsel

The two together

Keep safe and snug everyone!

Thanks Julia,
We found it in a gas fire showroom! But it was an ideal present to ourselves as we were celebrating our 40th (Ruby) wedding anniversary twelve years ago πŸ™‚.

Happy New Year to you, too, Sheila. I think your tree is very pretty and I, too, love your wall sculpture.
It's amazing how these plants keep walking...

Happy New Year, Sheila! Best of health to you and your family through the coming months!
The thing I love about winter is having the log burner on in the evenings. It’s so cosy and snug, watching the flames can be quite bewitching. Love your tree wall art!
Keep safe and well x

Thanks Kate, yes watching a blazing fire is quite therapeutic. In our last house we had an open fire and felt it was the best thing about winter! x

Thanks Amy x

I love it all Sheila, the Christmas tree, the Hellebore (is it 'Christmas Carol' ?), the fire and your wall sculpture! It all looks very homely . . . wishing you both a very happy new year.

Aw, bless you Shirley, thanks. It’s Hellebore Rose of Spring ... I couldn’t resist the mix of white and pink flowers πŸ™‚.

So sorry I haven’t got back to you about the quiz - just being a bit lazy! x

Now that wall feature is amazing, I just love it, and it reminds me of when I worked on a farm when I left school, I love the hymn in the bleak midwinter and the wall art fits this perfectly, so thanks for showing us and may peace be with you for a happy new year.

I wish you a very happy new year too and hope you have good health and happiness.

we have an open fire still and it is the cosiest thing in the world.

Love your sculpture a smashing focal point.

Did anyone say QUIZ?
Have been wondering about that..isn't it about this time last year we tried it,Sheila?

1 Jan, 2021

 

Thank you, Sheila and to you. Have a warm and snug New Year. Hopeful things will improve as we progress towards Spring.

Thanks Julien for your lovely comments, and thank you to Eileen, Sue and Klahanie πŸ™‚πŸ™‚.

Yes, Julia, I do usually share some of the clues from the annual Rotary quiz ... usually the ones that I’m stuck on! This year’s is quite difficult, but if you like I will do another blog and you can see what you think.

Thank you Sheila! Love the Christmas tree, shaky hand or not, I love the brightness of your room..:))
Pretty Hellebore and to have it indoors where you can enjoy it is such a good idea. Beautiful fire, I love it, logs and flames with no mess, heaven..haha. And what a lovely tree sculpture, looks perfect with the fire below.

Wishing you and hubby a much better 2021 Sheila, we certainly need it don't we.. Let's think gardening..:))

1 Jan, 2021

 

Sheila, no worries over the quiz, whenever you're ready, to swap answers!

Many thanks Janey for your generous comments ... so thoughtful as ever πŸ™‚πŸ™‚. Yes indeed, let’s think gardening for the year to come. x

Happy New Year Sheila. I too love your wall sculpture (and your tree). Nice to have things fall into your trolley, 😊

Buying that fire must be one of the most sensible and ever present wedding anniversary presents ever- keep the home fires burning! The trees are lovely!

2 Jan, 2021

 

A very happy and healthy new year to you too.
I like be your tree sculpture hanging over that lovely fire, it looks so very cosy and welcoming.
I have bought some daffodils to give some winter cheer and a pot of hyacinths come to think of it!!!

Many thanks Rose, Sandra, Josee, Sue and Chris for your cheering words πŸ™‚πŸ™‚.

Happy New Year to you & your family as well,Sheila! The log fire looks very interesting! The sculpture over it is fantastic & I love it!

The Hellebore looks very pretty! The shaky hand Christmas tree looks amazing!

I suppose you will know by the time you get around to reading this that Boris Johnson has put the UK into National Lock-down - for the third time in less than a year! :(

Thanks Balcony. Yes, apparently life has to get worse before it gets better ... and it will get better, it’s just so hard trying to be patient!

5 Jan, 2021

 

Wow I love the wall sculpture Sheila, our fire is gas but looks very realistic and one can be mesmerized by the flames... Best Wishes for 2021, staying healthy is priority number one , keep our spirits up and plan our gardening jobs for when we can be outside...
