Views from my Land

I think this may be cheating, Jane? But the view from my window is EXACTLY the same as it was last week, so this might be more the view from my window, with close-ups of my very dusty window sills! Still grey surburbia with white vacancy where the sky should be. Too fed-up with that even to show you the white vacancy where the sky should be...
Another close-up- the strawberry bed whence cometh fraise lachrymose. I would have had a very lovely explanation of fraise lachrymose for all you lovely Grow your Blog folk who signed up, did lovely posts and giveaways and then visited all the other participants. I, however, live in a constant muddle and didn't quite achieve any of the above! Hence another close-up. I had fully intended to de-muddle the back garden before this week's shot, but the Weeble house is still strewn all over everywhere so here's some exciting strawberry hope instead!
The really annoying thing is that, between last Thursday and this Thursday we have had lovely, lovely snow. It actually came and went three times in as many days. But still didn't manage to last until today. Except up on the hill where my parents live. We spent some time trying to dig them out this morning, for bank appointments and sanity concerns!  So no snow in the low suburbs side garden, though Angela will note that at least I made sure that the correct date was showing! (That is the correct date?)

Angels beat blank white pseudo sky any day! I find it difficult to believe that your tearful strawberries are green (and visible) when everything goes into a deep slumber here until May....when you will probably be picking strawberries.

There is always way too much to do, right?
Spring is coming. I just know it.

I wish I had a strawberry bed like yours.

Busy, busy, busy!! Never mind. It's lovely to read about your life when you can find time to blog. I would love to know the Fraise Lachrymose story sometime though - the name intruiges me! (that's spelled wrong, but I can't work out how to spell it correctly!)

Mags, it's the correct date at least once during the year!
hahaha

I’ve nominated you on my blog for a “Liebster” award – an award for blogs I like to visit. There are (aren’t there always?!) particular rules that one is supposed to follow...However, I do appreciate that many bloggers find such things a bit tedious, or not actually what they blog for. So, if it doesn’t float you boat, no worries. Just be happy that I’ve (hopefully) sent others to look at your blog and enjoy it as much as I do. If you do want to join in, then hop over to my blog to find out the “rules”.

I notice the correct date [tick] and the Willow Tree Angels [lovely] and look forward to the summer when the strawberries can be harvested x

Always more to do than the day has enough hours for! Isn't it lovely visiting all the Grow Your Blog people - I'm having a lot of fun with it. Betty

It's nice to see a bit of green in the garden this time of year, isn't it? I seem to have a bit of lavender growing and it cheers me up considerably. Almost as much as the angels growing on your windowsill!

Ahh, such is the view of winter. We still have some snow, but the rains are doing their best to wash it away right now. I like your angels in the windowsill and the spots of colour in your backyard in your previous post!

Blessings!
