Welcome to September and Spring....it's now official
And the Sunflower tea cosy is finished............
Green and white polka dot lining finished it off.
My creative advisor, aka No. 1 son, suggested it needed a Ladybird.
Thanks for the idea Rich, it has added a little something extra.
I love Sunflowers and I know I'm not alone there...........
There's a packet of seeds on the bench waiting patiently to be planted.
Busy bees doing what they do best.........click on the pic to
see the detail.
Turn it over and there's a saying by Pedro Calderon de la Barca
"Light enchanted Sunflower thou
who gazest ever true and tender
on the sun's revolving splendour."
More floral goodness.
A vase of deep, red Camellias, a little past their prime perhaps, but still beautiful.
They're not from my garden but that of a friend who has them lining her driveway.
Several different colours, all very happy and flowering profusely..........
Another little crafty project I finished this week..........
An order for a bub due in a few weeks.
Apparently mum and dad have a Kombi.
It was a bit fiddly to make on a small scale but I'm happy with how they turned out.
Somehow I don't think I'll go into production though.
Heading outside for a wander on the first day of Spring, the Crab Apple is coming into leaf and bud. It's at least two weeks early so I hope that means we get to enjoy the beauty for an extra couple of weeks. Hopefully Spring storms won't ruin the display..........
Prunus Elvins is already in bloom and as the weeks pass it will deepen in colour to a lovely pink.
As you can see by the blue sky (love the reflection in the dam) it was a perfect day.
A day in which I planned to sew up a storm but feeling a little under the weather this morning saw me spending more of the day in bed than I had intended.
Mid morning, I was up and at it and whilst taking things slowly, I did manage to do get a bit done and get outside and enjoy soaking up some Vitamin D.
Well Spring, you are very welcome, although I am a little sad to say 'Farewell' to Winter, I know that there will still be quite a few evenings spent in front of the heater enjoying the cosiness ............
I hope wherever you are, you can enjoy the changes a new season brings.
Thankyou all for visiting.
As the week draws to a close, I hope it's been a good one for you and you have been inspired by the beauty around you.
Till next time, take care,
