Hello, I hope you're all having a lovely Bank Holiday. The weather here's been glorious, if a bit windy! but it's been so good to be outside and enjoy all the flowers and greenery everywhere.
Walking Lottie this morning we passed bright yellow fields of rapeseed looking wonderful against the blue sky.
And cow parsley on all the verges.
In the garden this green woodpecker spent ages working his way round the sleepers by the summerhouse looking for insects. I had to crop the photo down a lot so it's not very clear.
The irises are flowering away. They don't last long but I love the soft apricot colour and their furry "beards".
And the last couple of tulip photos. The first is "Flaming Parrot" but I'm not sure of the other one. Very pretty anyway.
Finally, some crochet from the world's slowest crocheter! I did actually do most of these ages ago, then put them to one side when the weather was really cold as my hands were feeling pretty stiff and achy. Anyway, all the squares are finished now and I'm going to do a white border round each one then figure out how to arrange them. I quite like this rainbow effect, though there wasn't enough wool for 4 of each colour so it might look better jumbled up slightly. Can't decide!
