How to relax.

April 20, 2011  |  Featured Posts

Well the weather here has been lovely since the weekend.  I’m off this week so it’s good timing.

We’ve been buying some new bits and pieces for the garden – I love splashes of colour all over the garden so I’m always tempted by the brightest colours in the garden centre.  I’ll post a few photos of some of the plants we bought, over the next couple of weeks.

I’ve been doing a little stitching, a little knitting and a little beading so far this week.  Also lots of shopping!!

The title “how to relax” comes from these two photos.

I envy the way animals seem to be able to relax so easily.  I think I’m only truly relaxed when I’m doing some form of craftwork.    My banner is slowly getting there – I don’t know why I’m taking so long with it as I’m enjoying doing it.  I think charting as I go has something to do with it.

Finally, thanks for the recent comments – the bad news is that the tea loaf was only nice for about a day and then it went so dry I had to bin the lot.

I can’t remember the name of these flowers but I found them so appealing that they came home with us from the garden centre.

Now for a little giveaway update.  I’ve been very remiss at not having a giveaway for ages and thought it might be nice to have one with a Royal Wedding theme.  I’ve got one item still to organise so look out for the details in a couple of days.

Thanks for dropping in today, take care and  pop in again soon.


  1. Your flowers look lovely. And I love your new yarn! Happy Spring!

  2. When it comes to relaxing, animals are professionals and we are rank amateurs! Lovely spring bulbs!

  3. Animals really do know how to relax, don’t they? The weather has been gorgeous here, too hot for April really but I’m not complaining 🙂

  4. The flowers are just beautiful! You are right, the animals do look very relaxed.

  5. Those bulbs are Galanthus or snowdrops -usually one of the first flowering bulbs of spring. Thats 2 very relaxed animals you have there.

  6. Hmmm. My first thought was Lily of the Valley. Oh well.

    Love your blog and reading all the interesting things that you do.
