Hello! I do hope you're all well this sunny Saturday.
A massive and heartfelt ♥THANK YOU♥ for your comments in response to my last post. I was completely touched by your kindness. In fact, a few of you brought tears to my eyes. I'm not normally one to lick my wounds in public and came extremely close to deleting the post straight after I'd written it, but your supportive comments started to appear which filled me with confidence.
To update you very briefly, we've been to look around the children's new schools and they are both fabulous. So colourful and creative. The blondies are thoroughly excited. You're absolutely right, I think I had underestimated how resilient children can be.
As for the other business, well let's just say I'm stealing myself not to dwell on it.
Do you like my little tree? Guess what it is. It's an olive tree! Blondie daughter and I adore olives and the idea of being able to pick and eat them straight from our very own tree fills me will such pleasure. Whether or not it will flower and fruit this year, I've no idea. Apparently they are extremely slow growing. I shall have to do a little research to find out more.
I pottered around the garden first thing this morning in my dressing gown with my camera.
1. Viburnum 2. Lilac 3 & 4. Crab Apple Tree Blossom
It really is one of my favourite times of the year in our garden. The viburnum flowers are all nearly open and the smell is heavenly. The lilac buds are bulging in readiness and the crab apple tree is peppered with pink and white.
I couldn't resist showing you this picture I took of Bertie too - just love his shadow!!!
Well, I'm off out into the garden again now with some crochet. I've been trying my hand at some amigurumi. Kate of Greedy For Colour (gorgeous blog if you've not come across her before) has a super tutorial for little Easter Eggs. There sure are a lot of stitches for something so little! Here is my first attempt ...
I really rather fancy making half a dozen in zesty colours to hang from my little Easter tree so I'd best 'crack on' (tee hee!).
Enjoy your weekend and thank you again, you are all angels.
