Congrats ladies! I’ll be emailing you tonight to hear which scrummy package you want sent to your place 🙂

Thanks so much for all of your entries, your comments are (as always!) much appreciated. It’s awesome to hear that you are reading and enjoying my wee blog. I hope to share lots more craft and creativity with you all in the future.

And some pictures of what Spring has been bringing to my place 🙂

I love the colours of the magnolia, and who wouldn’t love a tree that blooms twice a year?

Only the second year (out of five) these have flowered.

Miss 3 and I have planted some annuals for some colour around the place. She loves to check every day to see how they are growing.

And we even planted out my long-neglected pots for extra colour. It won’t be too long before they are full of pretty colours.

Two weekends ago DH and I spent nearly the whole weekend outside grooming, weeding, composting and getting the vegetable garden ready for planting. In went the strawberries, a new raspberry – my first attempt which I hope will go well, and we even planted a mandarin, 2 apple trees, a plum and an apricot tree.  The mandarin suffered a toddler accident today 😦 But it might come back, I hope any way! But it’s lovely to contemplate the way they will grow and take shape, and provide for us too, in the years to come.

    Congrats to the winners, I’m sure they’ll thoroughly enjoy their prizes! Lovely flowers, and it sounds as though you’ll have a fantastic garden this spring/summer season, and for years to come. Alas, all we have is a deck…
