A February gift

I have often thought that we should give gifts in February. Sometimes February can be a filthy month with murky weather. Winter might seem to drag on – although not this year when we have barely had a real winter. People tend to get to a bit of a low ebb in February. Actually, I can’t say I do for I love the appearance of the first spring flowers and that includes the white crocuses planted for daughter’s wedding four years ago.

But a random and unexpected gift can still bring pleasure and I was given one this year. It’s a box of pencils.

image006If anyone hasn’t guessed, these pencils are decorated with art work by Eric Ravilious and produced for museums to sell.
