Honesty Collage

Hello everyone, lovely to back with you all again after my little jaunt to France although I am missing the beautiful Côte d’Azur sunshine!

I will share some of my holiday with you soon but I thought I had better drop by today with my May Girls who are going to be listed in my Etsy shop tomorrow night.

I have shared little Honesty with you before in a previous post, my first lop bunny was named after the beautiful honesty which is still blooming in my garden.

Bloom Collage

With the countryside and gardens everywhere springing into life this little floral girl has been named Bloom!

Maia Collage

After the lovely response to my first little Dutch bunny, I’ve made another one, this is Maia, to the Romans, Maia was the goddess of spring, after whom they named the month of May.

Mary Collage

This little one is Mary as in…Mary, Mary quite contrary, how does your garden grow! This gardening girl has little watering cans, spades and rakes all over her dress and lots of flowers everywhere including a row of beaded flowers all around her cardie.

Leigh Collage

The final May Girl is Leigh whose name means ‘meadow’. Leigh has a wildflower meadow all over her dress and her cardie is fastened by a beautiful yellow poppy.

So that’s all the bunnies for another month, they will all be listed in my Etsy shop tomorrow, Wednesday 27th May at 10pm (BST). More details about them can be found here, please remember they are collectible items only and not suitable for children under 14 years.

Have a wonderful Tuesday and I will be back soon with some photos of France! 🙂

And lots of other pretties too!

I’m so glad I got to see the bluebells in bloom before I go off on my holidays tomorrow, I know that by the time I get back they will all be over for another year…so pretty but so brief.

Something else that has been growing over the past couple of weeks……

I love how the garden evolves throughout spring, the daffodils are almost over now and sad as it was to see them go, it is time for the tulips to take centre stage and boy do they do it in style!

I just love the centre of this tulip!

One of the last remaining daffodils.

It is of course forget-me-not time, how on earth could we forget these little beauties?

The violas are one of the plants that just keep going from late winter right through spring, they seem to have got their second wind at the moment.

This a new acquisition, I just couldn’t resist it, the florets are about 9 cm across, it is very beautiful.

This beauty is honesty, I grew it from seed and it is ever so pretty, in fact so pretty that it inspired my new bunny!

DSCN3413

Meet Honesty, she is my very first lop bunny and she has lots of pretty little white flowers on her dress and cardie just like the gorgeous honesty in my garden.

So here we are at the beginning of what I think is the loveliest month of the year, May is so green and lush and pretty.

Thanks as always for popping by, have a wonderful weekend and a fantastic May! 🙂
