Home garden & greenhouse cherry


This is the sky here today but I have to admit not all the time. All of a sudden it gets very dark and the heavens open and it pours down, its chilly too. I really would like to get out into my garden because as a result of the weekend’s high winds it needs a really good tidy up!

The tree against the sky in the above photo is my cherry tree, its still looking good, no sign of autumn yet. When its leaves do begin to turn it happens almost overnight, in no time at all they have turned to orange and then they drop off almost as quickly.

However it’s still happy to be green and the birds are still enjoying it too, only this morning I watched a robin, a pair of blue tits and a chaffinch flit about it’s branches!


It does seem no time since it looked like this though but it’s best I don’t dwell on that too much!!!


Only what seems a few weeks ago now it was covered in cherries!


As it’s an ornamental cherry we don’t eat the fruit, we just leave it for the birds. I remember one day watching a magpie sidle down a very spindly branch to get a cherry, it was quite funny as the branch wasn’t quite strong enough to support him!


Sad as it is to see the passing of the blossom and then the fruit, I do know it will be no time at all until it has come full circle again and even though I am trying to embrace the seasons (well the two I’m not too keen on embracing anyway), I can’t help but look forward to that!


In celebration of my cherry tree I have created a new little girl, who is of course, called Cherry!


Wishing you all a wonderful new week! 🍒

Cherry is very sweet! Her cardigan is the colour of ice cream sorbet although I would rather be eating apple crumble right now! I think you need a display shelf in your craft room to place all your lovely bunnies for sale but they don’t hang around long enough do they?!!! x

Skies here are the same – beautiful one minute and metallic grey the next and the rain and wind are a force to be reckoned with! Love your bunny.

Yes indeed chilly, definitely Autumnal. Cherry is just gorgeous and I love the button on her cardi, Ali

Such a sweet little Cherry! The weather here has been truly bizarre today – brilliant sunshine one minute, downpours the next. And now it is getting chilly. Argh!

How pretty Cherry is. As always, you’ve dressed your new bunny perfectly in matching dress and button. Has she got a new home to go to? If she has, I hope the garden is full of beautiful Cherry trees so she’ll feel right at home amongst all the pretty blossom.

Love the beautiful cherry blossom against the blue sky! And Cherry is such a lovely name and theme for a bunny! The cherry fabric is really pretty. Same weather here……it goes from freezing to boiling temperature wise!
Have a good week.

The cherry season seems quite quick doesn’t it, no sooner do the fruits appear and the blackbirds descend here and scoff the lot! I do like your Cherry bunny, very sweet 🙂 x

Hi Vivienne autumn really does seem to have set in doesn’t it! Helllo to sweet Cherry, I love her green fur with her pretty cherry dress. She will certainly keep any thoughts of darker days at bay ;0) Hope all is well with you my dear? Jane x

Hello Vivienne, I’ve been out-of-town and need to catch up. Lovely Miss Raspberry AND Miss Cherry. It looks and feels like autumn here. Your cherry tree is cheering up my week.
Happy creating to you and hello from America—–

Hello Vivienne,

Here’s to embracing autumn (this might help me too, not keen on it either)! And oh Cherry (and the cherry-tree), she’s adorable, gray looks really pretty with that pink!

Have a lovely Thursday, and yippee: weekend soon too!
