Here's fun to brighten up a dull February day. Take some shallow containers of varying sizes and shapes and pour in about 1cm of water, leave outside overnight to freeze (or pop in the freezer if you are impatient, like me). Gather up some pretty stuff, I used gorse flowers, some sort of dried seed heads, ivy, a pretty pink camellia...anything interesting-looking that takes your fancy. When the water is frozen, tip it out, make your design in the bottom of the container, add some string for a handle, then replace your ice block and add a little more water. Re-freeze and then, hey presto! You can hang your frozen pictures in the trees or on fences to enhance that elusive Winter sunshine.
