Would you like to see what was inside? Look at these amazing pretties. I am such a lucky Mummy am I not?
So here at the Fairyglade everything is bursting with colour and activity. The birds have gone into overdrive, prinking and preening and strutting around. Old nests are being renovated, particularly by the doves and new ones are being built by the wildies. I sat outside after breakfast, my new mug keeping my hands warm because it was a bit sharp to say the least. I could see my breathe! But it was so worth it. The doves were cooing, the robins trilling, the crows cawing, the magpies chattering, the woodpeckers drilling, oh so much noise, but so worth listening too. Nature's alarm clock I call it.
As for colour, the spring fairies have spun their magic and the daffodils are lighting up even the gloomiest of corners. Everywhere you turn there is a golden pool of colour.
I just can't get enough of the daffodilies and Mr Fairyglade has planted thousands upon thousands since we moved here.
Such hard back breaking work at the time, but so worth the rewards now. We have quite a few different varieties and some flower early and some a bit later, that way we can keep the colour going as long as possible.
Then there are the hyacinths that waft their sweet intoxicating perfume on every soft puff of breeze. The Fairglade is a beautiful place to be all year round, but particularly so in the spring.
On my last post I mentioned that I had picked up my knitting needles for the first time in a while. My fingers were literally itching to get hold of the needles. Do you know what I mean, it's that irresistable urge to do something, that I actually feel like my fingers are twitching. So I suppose you are wondering what I was up too or maybe you weren't and there was no one out there with an interest either way. I am going to show you anyway....
A trio of pretty brooches! Once I started, I couldn't stop. So do you like them? I hope someone does because I don't need three and I so I thought I might offer one as my next giveaway. You have a choice between the lilac bow or the rust/orange bow. I am keeping the dark pink one for moi.
You decide which one you would like and leave me a comment and I will pick a winner next Sunday 10th April around teatime.
Well, that's all for now folks. Looking forward to the new series of Lewis this evening. I feel a bit of crocheting might be in order as well, remember the itchy, twitchy fingers.............
