Cheerful pink amidst the winter gloom

Back to the farm for the weekend for the baptism of a nephew, so an opportunity to check on my garden. We managed to catch the Taiwan flowering cherry (Prunus campanulata) in full & glorious bloom. It only flowers for a week so we were fortunate to be there just at the right time.The remainder of the garden is still in it's dull winter dormancy, but will transform in just a few weeks as the warmer weather approaches. The wheat crop is looking alright considering we've had so little rain, but needs moisture soon. And of course, I couldn't miss the opportunity to bring a big bunch of cheerful daffodils back to town. Little progress to report on the bright idea from my last post. I have done a tiny bit of embroidery, but am hoping to get back to it tonight. Have a great week. Best wishes, Bloom.
