Clearly a misunderstanding...

Dear Weather Gods,

When I had a chat with you the other day,
I thought it was quite clear what I wanted to say...

In fact, I think I may even have shouted from the roof tops: "Bring on SPRING!"

 And I most certainly did NOT say: "Snow is king!!!"

SO, dear Weather Gods... 
if you agree to quickly rectify this white and fluffy mistake,
I would even offer to bake you a melt-in-the-mouth chocolate cake!
But if you continue to ruin my spring-blossomed mood,
I would find you incredibly and unforgivably rude...

Anyway, I shall carry on protesting in my own special way,
and with spring flowers make an in-your-face indoor display!
Surely you can see its colourful appeal...?
So, what do you say, do we have a deal?


Thank you so much for all your kind get well wishes. 
Slowly but surely I am getting back on my feet, so your words must have helped! 

Wishing you all a lovely week, and stay warm out there!

Ps. Those of you who are readers of the UK interior magazine Good Homes, may have recognised one of  my photos of Hannah Turner's ceramics on page 18 in the February issue. I am happy that Hannah is getting more attention drawn to her lovely owls!


  1. ;-)))))))))))))))))))))))))
    Best wishes and hugs,

  2. Ja, nu börjar det tära på tålamodet den här vintern. Så vackert ditt tulpan- och videarr är - riktigt vårlikt.

    Nä nu vill vi ha takdropp, fågelsång och penséer...


  3. Those weather gods, my dear, you know
    They must have thought you said, 'More snow'
    For plenty of the white stuff falls -
    They seem to have misheard your calls
    But soon -soon - Spring will be here
    Inside - and outside - and filling us with cheer.

    Keep getting better X

  4. Jisses amalia vilken läcker tulpankruka du har där!! Såå fint att knyta ihop videkvistarna så där..... Du har vår utan tvekan inomhus i varje fall :-)) Gosh vad snö ni har. Krisläge i landet förstår jag då :-) Men oh, Helena. Så himlarns kul att få se en av dina vackra bilder i tryck. Grattis. Det lär bli rusning nu efter ugglorna!!

    Usch att du har segdragna baciller som inte vill ge upp. Hoppas att de ger sig iväg illa kvickt nu.

    Här är det också massor av snö. Men det är ju inte så överraskande direkt. Synd bara att det är så otroligt kallt samtidigt. Men solen lyser faktiskt en hel del på dagarna nu och det hjälper till i vinterdvalan.

    Stor kram och krya på dig!

  5. The Spring blooms are glorious! Get Well Soon.
    xo, Lissy Parker

  6. Gorgeous spring display!!! But I have to admit, I love the white fluffiness covering everything as well..... sorry..... ;-)

  7. ;-D I can not wait for spring too! So we pray together? Love, Carmen

  8. Just love the flowers - beautiful.
    I look nearly every day for spring signs in the garden - just a little is there with the hellebores being brave .
    I am NO fan of winter and like you want beautiful Spring to come - soon please !!!


  9. I am in the other side, diametrically opposed! I wish I was there!You wish you be here.Why Gods don't realize our wishes?
    Your spring bouquet is fabulous!Get soon well!

  10. WOW! Lot of snow out there! Insteat here we have only rainy and muddy days... =(
    I'm still waiting for the snow (They told us would) to come!

  12. Do you think if we all got together and shouted at the same time it might make a difference, was that a 'no' I heard? you are probably right. It is snowing again as I write, bah humbug. xxx

  13. Germany is covered with snow, but while my parents (living in the western part, 200 km away from us) have so much snow that they have to clean the street three times a day we (in the south-western part) have only two centimetres. But we had ice-rain last sunday and so the buses couldn´t drive on Monday. My daughter was happy - no school! I was also waiting for spring (because I wanted to have sunny days and colourful flowers around me - trying not to get depressive in these dark days) but now I think it´s okay the way it is because it is still January - spring starts in March ;-))

  14. Hihi, the weathergods do unfortunately not listen to our pleas. But, spring must be close: Heligans Lost garden twittered some days ago to have seen the first daffodil in their gardens. So let's hope it won't last long.
    Have fun... maybe with a little snowball fight.

  15. En kladdkaka som smälter i munnen, aha, det är
    det som hjälper. Vi har inte så mycket snö men
    det är kallt! För mig får gärna vintern tvärsluta
    precis nu. Från dina videkissar till snö var det
    ett långt steg.
    Ha det gott och stor kram

  16. You do know there is no weather gods, there is just one God and he is the Living God and He loves you so much, he came to us, Jesus and died for our sins, so now we have the free gift of salvation to all and everyone who believes. If you have a Bible read the book of John. Praying you will know how much He loves you. Laurie'

  17. I´m just wondering about those people who can´t look at your blog "just as a blog" - taking everything so seriously. One get´s angry because you "missuse" a symbol, the other one writes a comment about your formulation about the "weather-gods". What´s about tolerance? Don´t let them discourage you - we are so many women and men loving your blog, having joy and feeling good by reading about your little adventures. Stay as you are - we like you and your style!

  18. Hi! I'm new of the blog...I love so much Swedish style :)))
    have a great time!

  19. Well, I wonder if I should dare to have a fling with the snow king? Kanske han smälter då? ;))

    Hej Helena, hoppas du har tillfrisknat och åter står på benen igen. Vilken supersnygg tulpan-vide-kreation du fixat till! Jättebra gå-bort-present också, tänker jag. Kul att din bild hamnade i tidningen!

    Ha en skön helg,
    kramar Sanna
