Anémone | Anemone...

My first anémone of the season - and don't they just scream 'here I am!!!'?? - beautiful and cheerful this bright day, opening up nicely in the warm[ish] air. I figured I would pair them with my new little group of letter A's...that I shared a glimpse of the other day....picked up in Paris. A is for Anemone after all.

On Saturday I enrolled in French classes, so already feel one step closer [to what, I don't know yet - but lets just say I have stepped onto the yellow brick road...] - I was a little late to join in with this semesters classes as I have missed too much already {and although I can speak a good bit already - I want to start at the beginning as I didn't study it at school}....so I will be doing a summer school in June to fast-track me and then beginning the weekly lessons in September. It feels an age away, but I know it will arrive before I know it!! I am going to try and learn as much as I can off my own back .... so you will, from now on, begin to see a lot more bi-lingual titles on the blog. ;)

Much to do today - am working on some Anemone jewellery {having just completed a little necklace for Mothers day this past weekend...will show tomorrow!}....so am off to saw out some little leaves, and perhaps press some fresh ones {from the bunches} too.

Happy Monday everyone!

PS - I forgot to add this earlier....I scanned in an lovely article I found in April French Elle Decoration about Glasgow....thought you may like to have a little glimpse of my city! ..enjoy :)

Beautiful flower and letters together. So glad you are on your yellow brick road journey towards achieving your goal to speak French. I am always inspired by people who take that first step, it is the most difficult step so congrats!

Glasgow is FAB!!! I'm hoping that Liverpool will benefit from the capital of culture status just like Glasgow did. It is certainly a city to be proud of and look up too! Good luck with the French!

Les anemones sont mes favorites aussi! Good luck with the French classes - it's hard at first but really worthwhile. (I have been living in Paris for nearly two years now and only just getting to grips with it)
Lovely photos, great jewellery.
