stitching, quilting, fabric, projects
Having had a wander round with my camera this weekend looking at the flowers in bloom, I’ve realised that I’m in a relatively unique position to make a comparison about life, the universe and everything. It’s taken me a while to catch on but I’m seeing bluebells out, not just one or two but the whole blue carpet we’re used to in the UK around the first week in May.

They’ve been out 2 weeks already. So, the UK had rain, rain, rain this not really winter and NYC has had snow, snow, snow even last week, it’s not surprising the blooms have stayed tightly shut. Daffodils are out and a few tulips, forsythia is yellow, no spring green leaves in sight.
(yellow forsythia, no tulips yet but I did find these)
NYC looks like March. I took this pic of Daffodils in the UK on 1st April.
So do two weeks ahead and two weeks behind make five? It’s a little worrying in an overall state of the universe sort of way but I’m sure the flowers will catch up soon and we’ll forget how big an issue this really is.
