Spring Blooms at Home

Hello all, I hope you're well and finding time to crochet, craft and create.  I've been working on bits of crochet and knitting here and there.  Squeezing it in between my flower photo shoots!  It's the height of Spring and I wanted to capture all the sweet blooms at home right now.  Thanks for browsing along with me...

My Mothers Day bouquet from the Boys.  Photo taken a couple days ago and still going strong...amazing flower resilience!

 Perfect petals

An inexpensive bunch from the grocery store.  The tissue-like, transluscent petals have begun to unfurl ever so delicately.

My miniature African Violet in bloom and bud for its second cycle.

Sweet hydrangeas that will be planted into some outdoor pots.  A very showy and proud flower, dense with mini-flowerettes.

A standard cymbidium orchid, delicate markings, but strong and hardy.

My David Austin 'Windermere' ready to explode with blooms any day now.

The lovely David Austin 'Glamis Castle' awakening ever so sweetly.  I cannot wait to take in it's delicate fragrance once fully bloomed!

I hope there are flowers blooming where you are.  Have a good week ahead :-)

    About that blanket pattern you'd like that you saw in my blog, I don't have a scanner so I'll have to photocopy and post it to you if you don't mind giving me your address. I think it's a knitted blanket, do you knit? I'm about to learn. I'm going to a group on Saturday that was featured on Kirsty's handmade home so I'm hoping by saturday night I'll be able to cast on and off as I can remember how to do the knit stitch from when my Mum showed me when I was little.

    I wonder what we will think of all out crafty stuff in 30 years..."What were WE thinking!!"
