It had to be done, didn’t it, what is springtime blogging without a cherry blossom against a blue sky photo!

My cherry tree is in full bloom now and very beautiful it is too.

So brace yourselves, there is a lot of cherry blossom coming up!

Gorgeous, isn’t it!

Of course I couldn’t let the cherry blossom season pass without a little bunny, now as you can see my tree has wonderful white blooms but my new little lady has been inspired by all the lovely pink cherry blossom around.

This is….Petal, all pretty in pink, not just her clothes but herself as well. She’ll be available in my Etsy shop at the end of the month.

Wishing you all a fabulous springtime week, thanks as always for visiting! :)

It’s that time of year again, when the beautiful bluebells are in bloom.

When I want to find them I always head off to ‘my park’!

You all know by now how flowers and nature inspire my bunnies………..

Meet little Bluebell!

I’m actually surprised that in the two years I have been making my rabbits that I haven’t made a Bluebell before now, as I love the flowers so much. I think the reason is that I really hadn’t found the perfect fabric until last week.

It’s still remaining very springlike around these parts, there is the odd shower or two of rain but then what would April be without showers.

Enjoy the rest of the week and thanks for dropping by!

Happy Wednesday! :)

I have just completed my 100th bunny, I’d like you all to meet Pebbles.

DSCN1324

I can’t believe it really, one hundred little buns and the lovely thing is I still enjoy making them so much and it’s such a good feeling knowing others like them too and want to give them homes. I am truly very grateful for that.

Pebbles is made in a creamy white wool, she has a grey tweedy cardigan and has little pebbles all over her skirt. She will be in my Etsy shop at the end of the month.

Thanks as always for visiting and commenting and for all the support and encouragement you have given my bunny making , it is much appreciated.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend! :)

It has been such a beautiful day here today, what a way to welcome April.

It’s a day like this that makes you appreciate the little things in life.

Take time to enjoy the little things….happy Tuesday and happy April!!! :)

Pretty primroses on a roadside verge not far from my home.

I think primroses are one of my favourite wild flowers.

I’m sure many of you will have already guessed where this post is now going!

Viola, Beatrix and Jemima will be listed at 9.30 am and Aries, Tulip and Primrose will be listed at 9.30 pm, British Summer Time (doesn’t that sound good)!

Please remember if you do wish to purchase a bunny that they are not toys and are not suitable for children under the age of 14 years, more details about my bunnies can be found here.

Thanks again for all your support of my little blog and my bunny making, I really do appreciate it!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and as its Mother’s Day here in the U.K., Happy Mother’s Day to all Mums everywhere! :)

We have had yet another beautiful spring day here, yesterday was a bit chilly and wet and quite breezy but today we are back to spring sunshine.

The rose above is not blooming in my garden I hasten to add but it is one of a bunch brightening up my living room and has been for about three weeks now. Roses are beautiful until the very end, don’t you think.

DSCN1278

There are however plenty of new flowers blooming in my garden. I’m always surprised by the little primula which pop up every spring, I always buy new ones each year, after they bloom they then die back back and get forgotten about until next spring when they come back good as new.

DSCN1273

The grape hyacinths are peeping through now too all over the place, again I always forget where I have put them until they appear.

DSCN1268

I love scilla, on a day without sunshine they almost light up, so pretty, of course I prefer to view them on a day with sunshine.

DSCN1257

I’ll leave you with the latest bunny in the spring/Easter batch, this is Aries, a little pink girl covered in lambs!!

Thank you so much to everyone who has commented on my giveaway post, my goodness so many entries, I’m going to need a very big hat, you all have been so lovely with your comments. If you still haven’t put your name down for the giveaway you can find it here, its open until Friday!

Happy Tuesday!!! :)

My little blog is five today!

I can’t believe it, it really seems no time at all since the beginning, yet in a funny way it seems like I have been blogging forever.

I have met so many lovely people through blogging, some of them really good friends now.

Thank you to all you lovely people who drop in here to visit my little space of blogland and leave such kind and encouraging comments, some of you are here every time I post!

There is a section of my WordPress stats that gives me a list of the top seven people who have left the most comments in the last 1000 comments and it’s always the same people, you know who you are, thank you so much for being there.

DSCN1263

So to thank you all for joining me here at GRD, I thought it was time for a little giveaway!

I’d like you all to met Verdi, her name comes from the French for green and as she is a little green rabbit and is going to be a giveaway prize for the Green Rabbit blog, I thought her name was a good choice.

If you would like to a chance to win Verdi all you have to do is follow my blog and leave a comment, if you already follow then just leave a comment.

If you would like a second chance then either share the giveaway on your blog using any of the photos in this post or like and share the post on Facebook or Tweet about the giveaway and then come back and leave me another comment telling me you have done so. You can of course do all of these things but it’s just worth one more chance, not everybody has all of these social media and so it keeps it fair.

So you can have two goes at winning her if you wish!

I should point out that Verdi is not a toy and not suitable for children under the age of fourteen.

I’m going to keep the giveaway open until Friday 28th March, midnight GMT.

Thanks again for making my little blog worthwhile!!!

Happy weekend my friends! :)

*** The giveaway is now closed, thank you! ***
