  1. Spring or maybe summer has arrived and my garden has errupted with flowers, some of which I never planted, so where do they come from ? I missed taking photos of some of the beautiful blossoms on the trees a few weeks ago so I made sure that I got out between the rain showers to show you what inspires me, just outside my back door.

    Does anyone know what this is ?  I thought it might be Herb Robert but I'm not sure.

    Forget-me-nots, delicate little things when you see them up close.

  2. Easter is here at last, warmer weather, spring flowers and of course Easter Bunnies. I saw some driving to the supermarket the other day, which gave me an idea for a necklace.

    My neice will probably be getting far too many Easter Eggs so I quickly made up a pink bunny for her as she is at that age now where she is pink and bunny mad. As usual when I get an idea I have to try out various options to see what will work best.
