Daisy Connection.

I started joining some of the daisies together...

... and I'm liking the effect so far very much. It's a wonderful pattern (link here). It's simple, logical, easily memorised, produces a wonderfully bold flowery effect and is great for playing around with different colour combinations.

Yesterday, after a lovely sunrise we had some...

...snow!

Even the humble doormat is made beautiful by a snowy blanket.

We enjoyed a fun, snowy walk home from school.

This was as much as we got and it didn't last long.

A recent drawing of A's. I love how children just get on with it and draw a picture, just like that! I always seem inhibited by a fear of making mistakes which they don't seem to worry about at all, not at age 6 anyway - long may it continue.

The subject, "My friend Molly", wasn't popular earlier this week though. On hearing a commotion in the hallyway N went to investigate to find Molly "playing with a birdie Mum!" She'd managed to catch a collared dove and bring it in the cat flap and there were feathers everywhere! I managed to get the cat and the bird in separate rooms, and the bird was well enough to fly out the french windows. I have since seen it in the garden and hope it continues to survive. It's certainly a step up from the earth worms and mice we've been getting. The cat has now got a collar and bell back on, hopefully that will help.

And finally...

...so that he's not left out, here's a recent installation by N.

I love your daisy creation, really pretty and such adorable colours.
We've just had a very heavy downpour of hail here, looks like snow brrr it was very chilly and painful riding my bike being slapped in the face by hailstones!
I love your sons picture and art installation that's quite a collection of cute creatures! Which is more than could be said for your cat, although you have to admire her for squeezing a thrashing bird through the cat flap!!!

I have snow envy, I'd love just a little bit (or actually a lot if I'm honest). Fab daisies :)

My friend once got up in the night as there was a commotion in the kitchen. Her cat had brought a chicken through the cat flap and was chasing it around! (She didn't keep chickens...)
