my park

so that was march!

So another month has passed and I have to say I’m always sorry to say goodbye to March, I love spring and if I could pause the year I would do so now.

The garden is springing into life and I love it!

We have enjoyed some lovely walks in our local park too.

There has been lots of knitting during the month and we’ve celebrated a birthday and Mothers Day.

We had a little trip to lovely Edinburgh during the month as well.

And when there I got to visit the Edinburgh Yarn Festival, wow that was good, all that gorgeous yarn and talented designers and I may have made a few purchases to feed my yarn addiction!

So March you have been so very lovely and I am sorry you’re over.

Just before I go I’d like to share four more little animals with you that I will be listing in my Etsy shop on Sunday 2nd April at 7.30pm, more images can be found here and more info here.

Thanks as always for dropping by…..happy April!! 🙂

Well according to the GRD calendar we are now well into autumn but what a beautiful autumn it has been so far.

The weather has been amazing with lots of lovely autumn sunshine.

I still have many lovely flowers in bloom in my garden.

Of course with autumn there are plenty of fallen leaves to be raked up, this bagful was waiting to be composted but a certain Mr RJ decided they would make a cosy bed.

I haven’t posted about it for a while but we are still enjoying our lovely local park, it was looking particularly pretty in its autumn colours this past weekend.

As the weather is so good we have been enjoying a few days out and about…this is Helen’s Tower in Co Down.

The clear skies mean chillier evenings and its the time of year for knitting by the fire…..I’ve been making some things for Amelie including this cosy Wowligan cardie………….

And lots of other pretties too!

I’m so glad I got to see the bluebells in bloom before I go off on my holidays tomorrow, I know that by the time I get back they will all be over for another year…so pretty but so brief.

Something else that has been growing over the past couple of weeks……
