This is Ava, the last of my ‘April Girls’!
I think I’m correct in saying that the Latin for bird is avis and as Ava has lots of little birdies all over her I thought it was a very suitable name for her.
Ava along with all the other ‘April Girls’ will be listed in my Etsy shop tomorrow (Thursday 24th April).
Just to make it fair for people in different time zones I will be listing Pebbles, Bluebell and Petal at 10.00am (BST) and Jade, Florrie and Ava at 10.00pm (BST).
Hope you’re all having a good week, my Hb is off work all week so we’re still in holiday mode here.
Thanks as always for visiting! :)

My garden is full of these pretty little flowers at the moment, I do love forget-me-nots!
I love how within one little plant there are so many shades of blue, lilac and purple.
Beautiful and as always inspiring!
This is Florrie Forget-Me-Not.
Little Florrie again, this time painted using the Waterlogue app, I love painting with this app.
I hope you all had a lovely Easter weekend, I know we all did here at Green Rabbit HQ. The weather was beautiful all weekend, it’s a bit rainy here this morning but it does look like it’s brightening up.
Have a lovely new week! :)

Out of all the celebrations throughout the year, Eastertime is by far my favourite. If like me you are a bunny lover and a chocolate lover, well it really is the best time of year.
I have my Easter decorations up, my family will all be here for Sunday lunch, including the boy who is home from Berlin, there is lots of chocolate and the sun is shining ……….happy days!!!
My latest little bunny, arriving just in time for Easter, is called Jade!
I hope you all have a wonderful Easter weekend!
Hoppy Easter from the Green Rabbit! :)

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.
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.
Like sweet pea seedlings shooting up in a very warm greenhouse.
Little plants waiting to be potted up.
A pair of buzzards circling and calling out, high above my garden.
Blooming flowering currant.
Almost blooming cherry blossom.
Lily catching a few rays.
Freshly baked wheaten bread.
A blue sky through the ‘almost blossom’.
Wrapping up springtime bunnies for their journey to their new homes.
Take time to enjoy the little things….happy Tuesday and happy April!!! :)
