From the bottom of my heart thank you all so much for your lovely thoughtful comments on my last post. I have read them and re-read them many times and appreciate each and every one of them. So many of you know exactly what it feels like to lose a pet and that sickening pain that goes with it.
I have received so many messages not just here on the blog but on Facebook, via email and in the post too, you really are kind, caring people and knowing that you care has helped.

Thank you! ❤️

Jessie Collage

Sadly we lost our little Jessie yesterday in quite traumatic circumstances. As she appeared quite a few times on the blog I thought it only fitting that there should be a little tribute to her.

She was funny, cute, very chatty, quite the little madam and much loved.

To say that we are devastated is an understatement.

Jessie 5

We’ll never forget you Jess! ❤️

August already, way too quickly for my liking. Even four days in it has brought both sunshine and showers and there was a feeling in the air early this morning that made my heart sink a bit, I don’t like what’s around the corner!! Thankfully though the sun came out and it felt like summer again. There are daily pickings of sweet peas and tomatoes, truth be told most of the latter don’t make the walk in from the garden. There are bees and butterflies aplenty, unfurling flowers and lazy cats.

Take your time August!

Poppy Collage

Just popping in to share the last of my bunnies for the month.

This little one has been named Poppy.

Sundae Collage

This bunny has been crocheted in strawberry coloured yarn with a chocolate cardigan fastened with a triple scoop cone, she has a vanilla ribbon with a pistachio button in her ear…….I’m sure you’ve worked out the ice-cream connection, her name is Sundae!

Poppy and Sundae will be joining all the other ‘July Girls’ in my Etsy shop today (Thursday 31st).

Happy Thursday! :)

I think my favourite colour in the garden is orange, whether it’s a sunny day or a rainy day the one colour that really stands out is orange.

I have had quite a few orange flowers this summer…lilies, geums, nasturtiums and pretty little marigolds.

So vibrant!

Of course as is nearly always the case I like to turn them into bunny versions.

Say hello to Marigold!

Happy new week. :)

There is so much colour in the garden at the moment, it’s a joy to be out there in it, I’m going to miss these days when they are gone!

I found this little chap in my garage, he was exhausted, so I made him up some sugar syrup and after a long drink, a little rest and a wash, he flew off a happy little bee again.

And just to prove that all the colours of the rainbow are blooming in my garden at the moment, I made this little collage from some my photos!

Thanks so much for dropping by and for leaving such lovely comments!

Wishing you a lovely weekend ahead and fingers crossed for a continuation of our amazing UK weather! :)

It’s been a while since I’ve shown any bunnies on my blog so I thought it was time for a little catch up but before the bunnies a little posy of flowers from the garden, looking pretty in my kitchen at the moment.

P & J Collage

As you know I don’t do bunny commissions, I only make to stock my shop but occasionally I make bunnies for personal reasons and this month I have made two, Pearl and Elizabeth, who I can now show you as they are now in their new homes.

I have also been making my ‘July Girls’ and have three ready for my shop update, from left I would like to introduce you to, Marieta (which means ladybird in Catalan), Honey (who’s name needs no explanation) and Virginia (named after the little wild virginia strawberry).

I do hope to have some more ready before the end of July when they will all be listed in my Etsy shop.

Wishing you all a happy new week! :)
