Beautiful Spring.

Hello, I hope you're enjoying the long weekend and making the most of this lovely weather.  
It's always been my favourite time of year.  Everything is so green and fresh and full of promise!
The wild garden has seemed extra beautiful this year and so full of colour.  I love these pink bluebells, so pretty.





I love spending time in the greenhouse now.  May is always the best time for flowers, before it gets too hot and there's plenty of cuttings to be taken.


  





In between garden pottering there's been quite a bit of sewing going on, with the latest quilt blocks finished.  I think it's got a lovely old fashioned country feel.  Just  needs a plain-ish border to finish it off.


Thank you for stopping by and apologies if I've been absent from blogland recently.  I have some catching up to do!

  4. Love the bluebells and your greenhouse looks so lush. It's stunning. As for the quilt, I still feel it has such a vintage look which I really like and it's always fun to look at a scrap quilt and remember where the scraps came from. Hope you have a great weekend and take care.

    1. Yes, I'm sure they are. They were here when we moved and are always earlier and stronger than the the native ones. Still lovely though!

  27. Lovely photos. That quilt looks great - I'm sure you can't wait to get it finished.

  28. Your greenhouse full of geraniums is gorgeous! - and are those scented leaf pelargoniums that I can see in there? I've acquired a few pelargoniums this year and love them. So far have Attar of Roses, Mabel Grey and Orange Fizz although there's plenty more on my wishlist as the flowers are so beautiful! With all that colour all around you, I can see how it would inspire your quilt making!

    1. I fell in love with them years ago and must have grown them all at some time. I've ended up with lots of Lady Plymouth, Attar of Roses, Creamy Nutmeg, Chocolate Peppermint among others as they just seem to grow best and look good with the other plants. Who needs aromatherapy when you can stroke some furry tomentosum leaves!
