I thought I'd take this time to put down in a couple of blog posts some things that have inspired me lately. I find that when I see things I like, whether its in shops, other blogs or catalogues, they swim around in my head and eventually get forgotten about if I don't make a note of them. So consider this a look into my 'ideas' book if you like, somewhere for me to jot down my inspirations, things that I think are particularly pretty, things I want to make, and things that are just generally 'eye candy'.
We have had LOTS of beautiful weather lately (apart from today that is!) and the garden is absolutely blooming. It almost feels like summer is here already, colours everywhere along with lush green shrubs and grass. I was able to take some photos over the past few weeks of some particularly beautiful things out in the garden, and lets face it - who doesn't feel happy looking at bright colourful flowers?
Can you see the Forget-Me-Nots in the middle photo look like a heart shape? I thought that was rather cute! These flowers spread like mad, which is no bad thing in my garden - at lease they stop the weeds from taking over. Right now its a gorgeous sea of these bright blue pretty faces, but here and there a splash of other colours peek through, including these -
|Gorgeous purple pom-poms|
|Purple and peach Pansies|
|And a little multi-coloured windmill - just for fun :)|
