spring garden harvest


It’s spring and my roses are blooming all over the place. I love it. The delicious perfume from some of these roses is intoxicating. These posies contain lots of David Austin variety roses, lavender and my very own home grown Peonies!

The rhubarb plant is going nuts after some regular worm wee/tea and we shall indulge in it’s delicious sweet tart explosion tonight. Fresh, organic and full of flavour, I feel it needs little else but a light stew with sugar. I know some people can’t stand the stuff but for me.. it’s Mmm Mmmm.

Well this is not quite harvest ready, but it’s our future harvest. Is there anything cuter than wee tiny baby apples? Well – maybe… I guess lots of things really but these little beauties are gorgeous in my eyes.They are my baby Golden Delicious apples.

And these little cutiepies are baby Granny Smith apples. I didn’t realise until this very moment writing this post, that the posies above were for a dear friend, and that dear friend actually gifted me the Granny Smith apple tree as a housewarming present about 15 years ago. Oh how I do love a sweet little unintentional coincidence.

These are my very beautiful Peony buds. I’m lucky enough to have a couple of large garden beds of these divine flowers and a hubby that knows how to grow them well. Again – they like the worm wee/tea – but then I guess I haven’t met a plant that doesn’t. This bed is brimming with buds… and when they open… oh boy… oh boy… are they a sight to behold.

Back to the knitting and crochet… Would you believe that I only have one project on the go at the moment? I know – shame on me! I’m off to go rectify that right now. I think this time I’m going to knit something for me. And I think I’m going to follow a pattern… again! OMG what’s happening to me??? I’m a bit embarrassed to admit it but my yarn stash has got to the point that I’m almost paralyzed by choice. The project wish list is so long I’m finding it hard to commit to just one, so I might have to just go and start two new projects to feel better.

Hope your day is lovely like a sweetly scented Peony & Rose posie.
