April was cold and full of grass. I’m pretty sure that it was the coldest month of the year so far. We had frost most nights and snow on two days.
May couldn’t be more different – very hot and sunny. But although it’s officially Summer now, all around Spring is still Springing. I don’t remember it ever arriving so slowly. Bare branches and baby leaves are still the height of fashion.
And I upcycled some old clothes to make silk cushion with cotton crochet.
Whilst watching paint dry, I thought I’d take a photo of our new front door colour…
If only! Really, I’ve become a full time gardener and everything is very definitely still in progress. I expect to resume proper crafting around the middle of July…
Apart from that, we had a few more unusual visitors.
And some visitors who come back every year to tell us it’s Summer and to nest in the stables. The swallows are back! These may not be the greatest pictures but by catching some in a photo at all, I’ve realised one of my lifetime ambitions :D
The lanes are full of wild flowers but I have yet to take any pictures so maybe I’ll do that for next month’s link up. In the meantime I am going to link up with Soma over at Whims and Fancies. I hope I’ll see you at the party!
