My Photograph Of Crocus Used For Ample Bosom Catalogue

I am delighted that a photograph that I took of one of the crocus flowers from my garden has been used for the front cover of the Ample Bosom Spring Catalogue.

I was thrilled when my colleague Judith suggested to Sally, that my crocus photo might look good on the cover of the Spring catalogue.

I work part-time for Ample Bosom, an online and mail order lingerie, swimwear and nightwear company with a large range of sizes and styles from leading brands. If you are looking for beautiful, comfortable and well made lingerie, swimwear and nightwear, then Ample Bosom is the place to look.

If you are not already on their mailing list then request an Ample Bosom catalogue today. When you get your catalogue you may notice that the writer of the catalogue has attributed the photograph to Judith, which doesn’t matter, but I can assure you that I took the photograph back in January 2004.

Ample Bosom was founded by Sally Robinson, nearly ten years ago. Sally is a farmer’s wife who lives on a beautiful farm in the heart of North Yorkshire. Ample Bosom is run from the farm and the offices were barns on the farm that have been converted.

I know that Sally would like to feature a picture of the white horse at Kilburn on the cover of one of the Ample Bosom catalogues, so if you have a photograph of the white horse or any nature, farming or North Yorkshire scenery photographs that you would like Ample Bosom to feature on the cover of one of their catalogues, then please leave a comment and I’ll send you an email so that you can send in your photograph for Sally to have a look at.

Crocus – Green Thumb Sunday

Crocus bulbs of different varieties and colours keep appearing in my garden as solitary blooms of colour. Fiona and Danny over at The Cottage Smallholder are enjoying pockets of beautiful wild crocus.

My favourite crocus from this year is the beautiful bright yellow crocus. Do you have a favourite type of crocus?

Crocus Imperati – Green Thumb Sunday

The Winter flowering crocus imperati is beginning to bloom in the orchard. I have one lone crocus so far and I look forward to seeing the beautiful petals open so that the magnificence of this pretty flower can brighten up the dreary landscape.

The crocus is essentially known as a Spring flowering bulb, although some varieties can flower in Autumn and Winter.
