February // the coming of spring

STS Feb16_SliderOur little corner of the world is waking up, it’s lovely to see the sunshine finally breaking through what seems to have been a winter-long grey sky. Hoorah! The humble snowdrop is a beautiful reminder that winter is almost over and the onset of spring is about to unfurl and bring with it longer and warmer days.STS Feb16_3

Inspired by woodland walks and the signs of spring beginning to appear in the garden I wanted to use snowdrops as the main focus for this months Styling The Seasons post. I bought three small pots of Snowdrops from our local garden centre for a couple of pounds and have popped them in glass jars topped with moss, I think they look a little like mini terrariums, the delicate white blooms add a touch of beauty to the display. I have styled them with a simple wicker wreath, a sweet postcard illustrated with garden birds and my three favourite Observer books in the perfect shades of green.STS Feb16_5STS Feb16_7

According to the Observer Book of Garden Flowers the Snowdrop is one of our most cherished native plants, I think I would agree, would you?

    great publish, very informative. I ponder why the other specialists of this
    sector do not understand this. You must proceed your writing.
    I am confident, you have a great readers’ base already!

        This years been quiet to be honest, I did start a personal project a couple of weeks ago, using fake ice cream haha! Not really 100% successful though, might run some of the better shots by Getty, see if they’ll bite 🙂

        Looks like you’ve been busy on here recently, beautiful photos as always. Keep them coming, always like to see what you’re shooting.
