A Little Bit of Sparkle

Wild Daffodil is running a monthly photo challenge, I’m a week late with this one as it’s meant to be the first Tuesday of each month! We’re given one word as a theme for our photos. This month it’s…

Sparkles!

Everyone needs a little sparkle in their lives…

On Sunday we had a bit of frost, giving a touch of sparkle to the garden

Frosty morning

On Monday we had a lot more frost and the garden looked beautiful if rather cold!

About craftycreeky

I live in a busy market town in Yorkshire with my husband, kids, dogs and chickens. I love trying new crafts, rediscovering old ones, gardening, walking...anything creative really I started this blog after my New Year resolution worked so well. My resolution (the first one I've ever kept!) was to post a photograph of my garden on Facebook every day. My hope was that I would then see what was good in the garden and not just weeds and work, which was my tendency. The unexpected side-effect was that I have enjoyed many more hours in the garden. I am hoping that 'The Crafty Creek' will have the same effect. Happy creating!
