Spring has in reality been pushing through early around here, but today marks the last official day of winter, so we bid farewell to Mr and Mrs Winter and look forward to the blossoming light filled days ahead.
Our Mr and Mrs Winter are needle felted from soft merino wool in it’s natural washed white, with accents from hints of pale dyed greens greys and blues. Mr Winter’s hat is a clear blue of the winter sky, which has seen hardly any clouds this year.
Winter weather clear and bright
sun will shine with soft clear light
frozen fingers, frozen toes
I’ll think I’ll hurry out to play before the sunlight goes…..
-adapted from a children’s song we learnt in Norway
Wattle with your golden suns
underneath the spotted gums
warm our hearts till springtime comes
with it’s sunny hours……
– from a children’s song often heard being sung in our classrooms
Enjoy the sunshine weaving its way back into our days 🙂
