It really felt like Spring had sprung over the weekend, I hope it did with you too.
We enjoyed a rare weekend with only a few things planned and lots of family time and it was just lovely. We spent Saturday morning at the allotment and it felt so good to be outdoors, enjoying the sunshine and fresh air together.
Yesterday, we were invited round to some friends who live on our street for Sunday lunch. I always like to take a little something with us and decided a hand-tied bunch of Spring flowers would do just nicely. I thought I'd share a few photos I took while I was putting it all together.
I chose a selection of flowers from my local grocers (above), it always has such a great variety and I was spoilt for choice yesterday. I went with Tulips, Hyacinths, Freesias (for their beautiful scent), Wax Flower and these tiny Dafodils (which have a special name that I've now forgotten!)
I was excited to use my new scissors, given to me by my clever children (ahem!) for Mother's Day. They're a delight and perfect for snipping!
Can you spot the signs of a little helper having visited the table?!
I stamped onto a brown tag and tied it on to add a little extra something to say thank you.
|I hope these flowers have brightened the start to your week. Wishing you all a wonderful, colourful and happy Monday.|
Thank you for stopping by,
