Hello lovely friends and readers!
Well the spring rains came and filled up all the rivers & made slips & puddles all over our land.
The tulips loved the drenching.
Isn't this Margaret Tarrant picture sweet.
Then there was a wee break in the heavens and along came the ladies from the gardening group.
Someone thought they'd found a four-leaf clover down the back here.
And then, quite promptly, they were gone.
The bluebells have been such a joy.
I find I have some Spanish & some English varieties.
It is absolutely delicious, contains no flour & is very tasty & satisfying. It also makes the best ever toast.
I popped the recipe in here.
I collected these pink nerines seeds in autumn & they are just starting to sprout, all by themselves.
What elegance for seed dressing!
Julie Lealand treatment (ooh that girl's a treasure!!) I used the pastel pink Voodoo Molly Vintage paint that I bought a few months ago. After three coats on the outside it covered the glass really well. I then gave the lettering a very light sand. Love the effect.
I also painted a grubby old brown wooden tray with a test pot of green & lined the bottom with a piece of Rainbow Rose Cath Kidston wallpaper. I finished it with two coats of Modge Podge to make the surface wipeable.
Such good value for $2 each as they flower for months & just get brighter & bolder as time goes by.
I so value these dwarf calla lilies for their elegant lines in the winter/spring garden. They last for weeks in a vase.
Then, out came the sunshine & dried up all the rain...
I thought you might like to watch this marvellous video too. I love everything about it...the song, the setting, the joy & the instruments used by such happy, clever musicians.

Have a lovely & peaceful week.
Much love to you all.
