    Bonjour, vos photos de fleurs sont magnifiques comme toujours.
    Chez nous en France, en Auvegne , dans le puy de Dรดme, c’est l’Automne, avec le vent la pluie, le brouillard., et de voir vos photos de printemps, cela fait du bien au moral.
    Comment fait on vos bracelets avec des รฉlastiques ? On peut trouver un tuto sur le net ?

    Hi, lovely photos of your flowers. Here in England all my flowers have finished flowering, I must get out in the garden to clear it ready for winter. We have been having a lot of rain but it is sunny today so my go and make a start on it. I love your mice x

      It’s been a long time since there have been many flowers in my garden too, I really must plant more winter flowering plants! Thanks, I need to work on them a little more I think, and try to endear my children to them ๐Ÿ™‚

    My week was going really well until I saw this post! Now (as we’re heading into winter), you’re making me long for spring! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Beautiful foxglove by the way! And I must say that I think the goblin mice are adorable ๐Ÿ™‚

    It is fall in my corner of the world. While I love fall, I miss my pretty flowers and my vegetable garden. My husband just opened the door and my entire lawn is blanketed with gorgeous leaves. Thank you for your post! I feel as though I am enjoying the best of both worlds right now. Bless you!

    What a morale booster to read you blog, especially in the winter. Across the world, here in Ontario, Canada, the weather is getting colder and grimmer with the sun setting earlier and earlier. My daughter mentionned the other day when I picked her up from daycare that I was picking her up at night! Hmmm, how refreshing to know that it is always beautiful somewhere in the world if it isn’t in your own garden. Enjoy your day & your weekend!
    P.S. I think the mice a absolutely adorable!

      Oh dear, not my favourite leaving home in the morning and arriving home in the evening in the dark either! Never mind, it passes quickly, and just think- more time for crafting, cozy in front of the fire ๐Ÿ™‚

    Ah Spring! I remember Spring! Love all your beautiful photographs and fascinated by the bracelets. And I can see what your children mean: the mice do have a mean goblin look about them. Wouldn’t want to meet one on a dark night. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Spring is always so much fun ๐Ÿ˜‰ The rubber band bracelets are all the rage here. My 12 year old has been driving me bonkers wanting the kit. Hope you continue having a nice spring ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love your pictures. I would like the pattern for the wee mice.
    It’s fall here. All the trees a nearly naked.
    I’m so glad there is Spring somewhere.
