Fraise is a little strawberry-loving fox.

The garden really is at its best in June and the bees are loving it!

This buddleia is a particular favourite of the bees.

There’s just a constant buzz from it when it’s in full bloom.

image

The roses are looking great at the moment too.

And it’s so good to have my hydrangea back in bloom again too.

So much pretty colour!

Florence whose names means ‘to flower’ has a little cottage garden on her dress.

Just popping in to share my latest little bunny with you all.

This is Amelie, who won’t be appearing in my shop at any point as she is for my little granddaughter.

She was made to match the nursery and she fits in very well.
