Something bright for January.

I meant to post these pictures a couple of months ago. I was just looking for a cheerful picture to put on here and re-found them.....

OK I know I shouldn't really buy flowers from a supermarket, what with private florists struggling to survive, but........
they had reduced them to 50p!

They lasted nearly two weeks. I dried out the sunflowers and hung them in the trees for the birds last month.
I knew they were a bargain at the time, but little did I know they would brighten things up round here in January, too!

Beautiful! I'm surprised you didn't use them as an art subject...

I'm anxious for summer to get here. These sunflowers make me smile.

I've noticed a few crocuses starting to break through....
