Blooming marvellous....

What a wonderful few days of nice spring sunshine we've had. Daffodils are blooming in their pots and at long last my camelia bushes are flowering. These are usually in flower mid February so are very late this year. Dh has spent a lot of time at the allotment planting things out and the greenhouse is blooming with new shoots on his seedlings. I bet you've all been busy in your gardens too.

I've had my nose in a book so only a small amount of stitchings been done in the evenings. Here's the birthday pressie for SIL's mum, a small something to put into her card. Grand Marquoir has been out too and it now has 2 more motifs, i can't stop stitching on this! A couple of 'other things' went off in the post last week too, i'll show you those when i know they've been received.

Enjoy your stitching and craft projects, thanks for visiting

I've been sorting out the grenhouse today. My Camellia doesn't usually flower until May, it must be a later variety.

My daffodils are looking so good this year, maybe from all the rain we've had.
Pretty flowers are so nice to see bloom and to get out and feel the warm air.
Pretty little gift.
Enjoy spring!!
