Blossom,Bunnies and a Bracelet

Out and about on Friday I was enchanted by the stunning blossom around at the moment

This gorgeous deep pink on the way to the supermarket

And this paler one on the way back,looking amazing teamed with the bright yellow of the Oil seed crops ..........

This crop is very popular in these parts at present...It may not be very traditional ,or popular with poor hay fever sufferers.But it does look stunning against the greens of spring and blue Sky.....

In my garden my beloved Dicentra or Bleeding heart is looking AMaZing......

I just love everything about this plant,it's pretty pink heart shaped flowers which are born in lovely arched fronds ,and it's floaty foliage .

If I had to choose my favourite plants of all time this would definitely be high on the list.
Plus it's at it's best at one of my favourite times of year.When the days are long enough and the weather is kind (usually!!)
The plants are growing like mad ( and the weeds but we wont talk about those!)

There are signs of life in the veg patch.....

Potatoes and lettuce doing well.Hosta beginning to uncurl....

Whilst I pottered around in the garden on Saturday ,planting Hollyhocks,Delphinium ,Lupins and Clematis the little people walked the bunnies (or was it the other way around !)

Plenty of dandy lions in our lawn for them to munch !!

Last night Mr BM and myself had a night out with friends which is still quite a rare occurrence ,it gave me chance to wear my lovely thrifted dress for the first time..

I also wore a bracelet I made last year.....

I was really pleased with how this turned out.I've worn it lots of times and it's so nice to wear something you have made yourself.

I got the pattern here .There is a tutorial with lots of photos,so it was quite easy. I made mine with some metallised yarn for extra sparkle...

Its closed with a pretty button....

I must make another of these some day.

In the mean time I've been working on some different crochet.....colourful crochet bunting ...but more of that next time !

Enjoy what's left of the long weekend

  1. Your bracelet is GORGEOUS! I want one(but I would have to venture away from blankets!) It is really delicate and pretty. I also love your pictures of blossom and the yellow fields I agree they look beautiful and I am sure they would make explore if you put them on Flickr!
    Hope you are enjoying your weekend xxx

  2. Oh Wow!

  5. Hey Jacqui, lovely post and photos, such a nice time of year in the garden. The Dicentra is a very elegant and graceful looking plant I think. Your garden will be stunning come summer, with all the plants you've put in.

    Gorgeous bunnies too.
