Home animals march


March started off bright and sunny!


However things soon took a chilly turn.


Thankfully though it wasn’t long until the blue skies returned.


And the garden continued to bloom.




Of course there was the usual band of garden helpers, “see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil “…..the three wise cats…..hmmm, maybe!! 😉


We celebrated my daughters birthday on the 9th of the month.


On the 15th of the month it was 4 years since I made my first little rabbit, Lavender Rose pictured here with one of this months bunnies, Hoppy, who turned out to be my 250th animal!


Yesterday we welcomed the Spring Equinox with blue skies and blooming flowering currant!

Henrietta Collage

I have of course continued making little creatures throughout March, this month they are the ‘Spring Girls’ all with a springtime theme.

This is Henrietta with all her chickens and eggs!

Harper Collage

Harper the hare has a dress covered in pretty hares.

Muscari Collage

Muscari has been named after one of my favourite springtime flowers.

Hoppy Collage

Hoppy is a girl who loves her carrots.

Aviva Collage

Aviva’s name is from Hebrew and means ‘springtime’.

Florentina Collage

And the final Spring Girl is Florentina whose name means ‘blooming’!

The spring Girls will be listed in my Etsy shop this evening, Monday 21st March at 9pm (GMT).

Please remember they are collectible items for adults only and not suitable for children under 14 years, more information about them can be found here.

Tomorrow (22nd March) is another milestone for GRD as my little blog is 7 years old, more about that soon though, however I would just like to thank all you lovely people who have stuck with me during those years, I really do appreciate your friendship!!

Thanks as always for dropping by, have a lovely springtime week!!! 🙂

Wonderful post! I love all the spring flowers and all your lovely woolly makes. I think Henrietta is my fave as her dress reminds me of when I kept my lovely hens. The Birthday cake looks gorgeous (I bet you made it!) Happy blog Birthday! x

I’m so glad I didn’t miss this post Vivienne, so many gorgeous spring photos…despite the snowy interlude. Wow 4 years and 250 bunnies……I know they breed but that’s incredible. Each one has been a little work of art and these new girls are gorgeous, especially Henrietta..so cute. I love all the little details you add. Happy Easter to you and yours my dear friend and may it be filled with bunnies and chocolate :0) xxx
