Home flowers meadow


Look at all this lovely greenery, waiting to be planted out, I have lots of pots and borders waiting on summer bedding and what is it doing on this bank holiday Monday in my part of the UK……..raining!!!!! Typical!

Hb is at home and we had planned to do some gardening today.


This is my new sweet pea frame in my raised bed, just completed and waiting……….


………for all these sweet pea plants which are raring to go but it’s pouring out there!!


So then, let’s just have a look at what’s in bloom if actual gardening is out of the question!




As I look at the rain running down the windows, I’m dreaming of summer meadows, buzzing bees and colourful flowers which are exactly the inspiration behind my latest bunny.


This is Meadow! ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy Monday, hopefully yours is a lot drier than ours. The sky is looking a little brighter, so maybe there is a little hope!

Have a great week!

Hello from across the pond! Happy Monday…my day was just made by seeing Meadow in her beautiful dress and sweater. I’ve been enjoying your photos of the flowers that you surround yourself with. I don’t have a green thumb like you, but do appreciate the talents of others who do. Have a lovely day. Robin

Raining here too Vivienne. Your grass is nice and green and flowers are beautiful. Summer is on its way. Meadow makes me think of all the flowers on her skirt and what a lovely name!! Goods things are happening in your garden. Blessings. Elizabeth x x

Hello dear Vivienne!

I’m back from England and jolly glad to pop in and see your beautiful flower and bunny pictures! Isn’t she a sweetie with her meadow flower skirt! I bet you are in your element in May with summer approaching. I’m also glad to see that the weather here in Tours is fabulous and that I missed an entire week of grey and rain whilst away ๐Ÿ˜‰

Hello dear Vivienne,

Lot of sunshine from here, we’ve had cold but pretty day. And wow, those flowers are so fantastic, I can’t wait the time we have something like that here…July? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Meadow is so cute – but I can’t believe you haven’t made a bunny with that name already! Pretty name for a pretty girl!

Have a lovely week!

Hi Vivienne – the garden looks so lovely and fresh (due to the dratted rain, I suppose!) and Meadow is gorgeous. I hope you manage to get outside to plant the sweet peas, etc., very soon. Chris x

Vivienne, Sending some sunshine your way!! We had a super rainy week, last week. Hoping for some warmer days this week.
Can’t wait to see the sweet peas growing. Meadow is my newest Fave. (Would love a dress for me in that material) 0-;
Happy new week……

Oh you poor thing Vivienne, it’s been glorious here all 3 days of the bank holiday weekend. I managed to get the lawn cut too. You have so much ready for your garden, your plants are bursting to get away. Meadow looks very pretty in her gorgeous floral dress…she is the promise of summer. Sending you Surrey Sunshine hugs xx

Really beautiful flowers, such a joy on a cloudy morning, as is of course your new little bunny ๐Ÿ™‚

Fancy it raining when you’ve got gardening to do! Isn’t it always the way? :0(
Luckily, the sun was out here, and we ended up taking down two conifer trees, which were blocking out a lot of light – such hard work, and not very good for a lady’s nails!!!!!
Meadow is beautiful – love her pretty dress :0)
Hope the sun is shining for you today, so you can get planting.

Sorry it was raining ๐Ÿ™ Just like a Bank Holiday though! Here it was cloudy and grey but dry and all my new plants wanted a drink! I hope it is sunny for you this week and you can get all that lovely greenery planted. I love your new bunny, Meadow is a beautiful name and she looks very pretty!
Have a happy week, Vivienne!

I hope the weather brightened up for you Vivienne! You have lots of growing that have got going and need planting up! It will all be beautiful come the height of summer. x

Meadow is a cutie! Yep, weather has all gone to pot over here .. knitting time ๐Ÿ™‚

Chrissie Crafts May 6, 2014 - 8:21 pm

Oh dear, I’m sorry you had rain your way, those plants look so *eager* to be planted, too! I hope you get some dry weather asap (notice I didn’t type ‘sunny’, I know better than to dream big!). Meadow is a pretty little thing, she looks ready for some sunshine, too! Chrissie x

as always your garden photos are beautiful. We were in London over the bank holiday and the weather was gorgeous there., Hoping for some good weather this weekend for giro d’italia and to do some work in the garden

I imagine your garden to be a riot of colour all year, well except perhaps for in the very depths of winter!

We’ve been lucky with the weather here lately, lots of sun and very little rain. I hope it soon cheered up for you ๐Ÿ™‚

HI Vivienne, that looks a really good sweet pea frame, nice and sturdy. How lovely to see Meadow, I recently bought some fabric which I’m sure is just the same as her dress, it’s lovely. ๐Ÿ™‚ x

You do take lovely photos Vivienne, and I am always so impressed how co-ordinated and thoughtful your bunnies are, especially when you see the inspiration and know the names. It makes them even more special. Bethx
