The trees will bloom again, I’m sure of it. Even though it doesn’t feel that way now.
I try not to complain about the winter, because there’s nothing anyone can do about it. But I admit that I am getting mildly frustrated and more than a little discouraged when it feels like ‑22°c in the middle of March.
So when I spotted these Japanese quince flowers on Attic 24 I thought I had to make them, and to wear them on my coat, to remind me of blooming trees. I’ve almost forgotten about them, this winter has been so long. Blooming trees are one of my favourite things.
Yes, that huge snow hill behind me is going to melt, and the trees will bloom again, I know they will.
The flowers are indeed very easy to make and they turn out very cute. I especially love the fuzzy centres with the yellow yarn.
And yesterday I willfully left my snow boots at home. A bit of ice doesn’t stop me from wearing my spring shoes.
Happy Tuesday, wherever you are.
