Gardener Sophie keeping warm in her thick jumper and boots

 Earlier this week I was delighted to see the Snowdrops (Galanthus Nivalis) were up and out in the garden, a cheery sign on even the darkest of grey winters day. Of course with my mind working on Polly overdrive, I put the two together and here we have Sophie and her Snowdrops.

Woolly and warm

Sophie loves her garden, especially Snowdrops. To keep her warm on the cold, winter days, she is wearing a super thick, felted wool jumper matched with a tweed wool-wrapped top and trousers. Of course no gardener would go out with their green felt wellies and a knitted pom-pom hat to keep their ears warm!

Her Snowdrops are made of felt and are planted in felted wool pot.

Sophie sits at 28cm high from her green wellie to her hat’s pom – pom. Her little pot of Snowdrops are 7cm tall.

As with all my Pollies, they like to be comfortable, so can be gently bent at the knees and elbows.

Sophie is for sale and will shortly go into my Folksy shop
