Cherry Blossom

by greenrabbitdesigns

One of the prettiest sights of the moment is cherry blossom!
In gardens and parks, it’s everywhere and it’s beautiful.

The colours vary from white to various shades of pale pink right through to the deepest magenta.
My cherry tree produces gorgeous white blossom which when pictured against the blue skies we’ve been fortunate to have of late is simply stunning.

So with all this beautiful blossom about I’ve been inspired to make another little bag which you have had a few glimpses of in recent posts.

This is my cherry blossom bag knitted in an alpaca/cotton mix yarn in what I can only describe as cherry blossom pink.

I have lined it in a pretty little pink floral fabric and …..

….. have given it creamy white crocheted cherry blossom flowers and knitted leaves.

The little Easter bunny parade seem to approve!!!

Happy Monday everyone and as always thanks for dropping in! 🙂

I only have my mangnolia in my garden Vivienne which has just finished its show of flowers but we have several cherries in our road. I only noticed today walking home from work how stunning they look. Your white blossom is so cheerful. The bag is perfect for spring, clever you. Glad to spot the easter bunny parade too!

That is just the perfect fabric lining! Did it inspire the purse or was it a happy meeting when you found the fabric to complete it?

That’s a very pretty bag – perfect for Spring, although I’m rather taken with those bunnies too!

I think the cherry blossom looks spectacular with the clear blue sky.
Mine is looking particulary fine this year.

Love your photos of the cherry blossom, we planted a cherry tree this spring so will be looking forward to blossom and yummy cherries in years to come.

Another beautiful bag, such a pretty shade of pink and the fabric for the lining complements it so well.

Have a lovely Easter,

Oh so beautiful! I was a little bit bummed that I missed the cherry blossoms in full bloom when I was in Washington DC – I´ve heard it´s absolutely overwhelming. Love your pics! 🙂

I’m playing blog catch-up again and see you have been very busy! Really lovely blossom bag and perfect for this time of year. We are surrounded by old overgrown fruit trees, sadly they are mostly covered with ivy and clematis but the blossom is still beautiful. Bethx
