Home countryside may so far


My goodness May has been a whirlwind around these parts!

Due to the early arrival of our gorgeous little granddaughter Amelie Annie.

She decided she wasn’t waiting until her due date and arrived on the 2nd, 16 days before we were expecting her!

She was a very healthy 7lbs and perfect in every way.


To say that we are completely besotted with her would be an understatement, she has brought so much joy to our lives!


My garden has continued to bloom during the month despite me not having that much time for it but that’s the thing about May it just gets on with things without much help!






I also managed to get to the woods to see and smell the bluebells!


And the wild garlic….which perhaps doesn’t smell as sweet as the bluebells but is still pretty.


And of course the wonderful cow parsley which couldn’t be missed either.


There seems to be such an abundance of it this year.

And it has been the inspiration for my one and only May bunny to date!


Meet Parsley!

Life has been busy and I have missed making my bunnies so I really need get back to them again and of course I have to make ‘Amelie the Bunny’ for a special little girl too!

So just one more week left of May to enjoy, I do love the month of May, it has always been my favourite month of the year…..even more so now as it’s the birth month of my little princess. 💗

Hello dear Vivienne,

And welcome to this world little princess Amelie! No wonder your granny has not found any time for gardening or bunnying, I would not let go that sweet tiny hand either! So once still: the biggest congratulation to you all, to the new parents and grandparents! Enjoy this special time, I am sending a lot of sunshine your way, we seem to have plenty to spare!

Dear Vivienne, I am thrilled for you and your family with the addition of this new little baby girl. My son was married the summer your daughter married and I’m patiently waiting for a grandchild. Enjoy every moment you spend with her and hide them in your heart to revisit when you are apart. Many blessings upon all of you.

Hello Grandma V. Sorry to be so late in saying Congratulations (again)!!! I know this was a special month with Miss A. Who needs bunnies and a garden, when you have a little baby to spoil??!! Here’s to many sunny summer days with your family.
A big kiss from my family to A.A.

Congratulations Vivienne, she’s beautiful. Amelie is such a pretty name and May is a lovely time for a birthday. Looking forward to seeing Amelie the bunny too. Some great flower pics – the flowers have been glorious so far this year, although they’re taking a real battering in my part of the British Isles at the moment! Jxx
