Se7en’s Very Best of the Rest from Around the Web… And a Free Printable Weather Tree…

December 31st, 2014 · 10 Comments

We had to emerge from our post-Christmas laze…. with a post filled with the Best of the Rest from around the blogosphere… and so many folk are searching for our weather tree right now that I thought I would put it front and central for you.

For those of you who don’t know our weather tree… we colour the leaves according to the weather… sunny days get green leaves, rainy days get blue leaves. We keep it simple, but of course you can add or subtract whatever you would like too. Here’s our tree for 2014, all coloured in.

    Love that tree – but I suspect it would be mostly blue for the rain – or more realistically grey for the grey skies! (I know I post lots if sunny skies on my blog but that’s because I want to capture and remember those!)

    Janmary, I know exactly what you mean – when we were children my parents took us on holiday to the wilderness, pretty much a dessert. Every time we came to any water she took a photograph… our walls were covered in photographs of these beautiful wetlands, and everyone thought we were visiting sensational wetland forests – not exactly the case. Myself… I took what appears to be endless photographs of my sleeping firstborn, because he never ever slept… clearly the camera can lie!!! Lots of love and thanks again for stopping by!!!

    LOL at Janmary and your subsequent comment.

    I’m going to do this. We had CRAZY rain this morning for an hour and then gorgeous blue skies.
