Yes, it’s nearly here, just a few hours to wait as the February issue is published tomorrow! Rosie and I are really excited about this issue with its lovely pink cover and, well, far too much inside to list. But luckily I have uploaded the full preview so you can have a quick peek inside that pink exterior ….
There’s lots to enjoy this month! And, thinking of pink, I am delighted to report that my beautiful early-flowering pink camellia is coming into bloom. I spotted a splash of colour through my bedroom window this morning and closer inspection revealed some fat buds and a few fully open blooms. I’ve brought these inside as the weather is forecast to turn increasingly wintery and I don’t want them to spoil …
Some for my friend Jacqui – she loves them and as she’s invited me for tea tonight I think they’ll make a nice little gift that’s sure to be appreicated. And I’ve kept a couple of buds for myself, which I’m sure will soon burst into flower in the warmth of my logburner….
I’ve added them to some shop-bought flowers, so I will have fragrance from the hyacinth as well as beautiful colour – which nearly matches the colour of my little rabbit’s tail. He’s going to be a project for the March Magazine and is waiting patiently for me to write up his pattern – and make him a little egg-cosy friend too!
