Home bears april days


April has meant more time in the garden in between the showers that is!

It is lovely to see the cherry in bloom again.


Nothing quite like a blossom and blue sky pic!


The evening light is great too at this time of year.


So nice to get the longer evenings back.


The borders continue to come life……the daffodils are almost over, just a few left now.


The tulips however are coming into their own.



There have been fritillaries……


……..of all colours!


It is lovely watching the garden change and grow at this time of year.


April has also included some animal making too.

This is Iris with her iris patterned dress and button.


Little Bubbles the bear has lots of bubbles all over her dress.


Happy is just that…..a happy little hare!


This is Leaf, who is celebrating all the new fresh green leaves.


Flower…the little springtime fox.


And finally this Aya, her Hebrew name means ‘bird’ and with all her bird boxes she is definitely a bird lover.

I will be listing all six animals in my Etsy shop on Wednesday 27th April at 9pm (BST). Please remember they are collectible items only and are not suitable for children under 14 years. More information on them can be found here.

It’s really hard to believe another month is coming to end, slow down please 2016!

Thank you so much for all you comments on my last post.

Have a lovely week! 🙂

I love Bubbles the bear! I love them all actually! It is not much like April today. It is so dull and so cold – more like November! I hope that May is more seasonal! x

Your flowers are gorgeous, and your photos capture them beautifully! Love the spring blossom so much! The little animals for this month are all very sweet….and it is always too difficult to choose a favourite…though I do love Aya, the little pink bunny with her lop ears, birdhouse print dress and that little birdhouse button 😉
Enjoy the rest of April, Vivienne….hope it is sunny for you.
