Sugar and Spice in Homespun Magazine's June Issue! YAY!

It was SO cold this morning....I absolutely FROZE....just 8 Degrees C inside and we had a HUGE frost down on the flats this morning BUT I was too cold to go out and take a I know some of you are laughing at me because to you 8 Degrees C isn't so cold BUT.....for ME it is FREEZING!

Luckily the days have been simply gorgeous though......and a week or so ago we had some rain so everything is so nice and green now it just simply doesn't look like winter at all! I even have a sunflower growing next to my studio....complete with busy bees! Normally sunflowers are grown in summer........I think the frost might of effected it looks a little sad this morning:


My Sad Sunflower....


Especially when you consider it SHOULD look something like this:

LOLLL....Oh well! I hear that Sunflowers are supposed to follow the sun as the day progesses BUT I have yet to see this one change direction.....maybe that is why it is so sad? LOLL
