Home flowers Saffron


by greenrabbitdesigns


I have, at last, some little crocuses in bloom in my garden and they have been opening up their little petals towards the very welcome sunshine this week.


They’re such brave little souls because despite the sun it has been bitterly cold outside these last few days.

You may well be wondering about the title of my post!

Well no, I’ve not started harvesting my own saffron, unfortunately my crocuses are not saffron crocuses!

Saffron is my new little girl and she takes her name from the beautiful colour that saffron spice produces. She also has an array of little crocuses on her skirt. Her colours also echo the sunshine we have been lucky to have this week (we’ll just forget about the low temperatures).

Almost the end of another week and February is disappearing very quickly. My daughter announced this morning that it is only 18 weeks until her wedding which I have to admit shocked me slightly, that doesn’t seem so far away now.

The ‘men’ have finished for the week now, having cleared the old kitchen completely and installed all the new electrics and plumbing. The kitchen fitters will arrive on Monday morning to install the new kitchen. My house is a mess but at least it is quiet again, for a few days anyway.

Wishing you all a lovely weekend and as always thanks for visiting. 🙂

Just love how you link your crochet bunnies to the seasons and all they contain/represent. This one is so clever!

Hello dear Vivienne,

Only 18 weeks?!? Oh my, that’s wonderful! And then it’ll be the most beautiful summer..ah… And the most beautiful is little Saffron too, and as usual: I LOVE the dress! Wouldn’t mind having one for Easter!

Have a good weekend soon, dear friend, without any extra men hopefully :), and happy crocheting!

Beautiful pictures of your crocuses Vivienne. I think you must be feeling very spring like now 🙂
The new addition to the bunny family is adorable. They are appearing ever faster – another sign of spring maybe………
Good luck with the kitchen renovations. It will all be worth it in the end.

Your pictures of those cheery crocuses are absolutely stunning and show off beautifully the bright yellow stamens. I love Saffron with all my heart and, goodness gracious; your daughter is getting married in eighteen weeks? Countdown begins 🙂

The crocus is so pretty with its bright orange stamen – such delicate petals too. Bunny Saffron is very spring like and as always the cardi steals the show for me!!! Have a lovely workmen free weekend Vivienne. x

Your fabric and yarn choices always go so well together Vivienne … your stash must be huge!

Gorgeous crocuses, and gorgeous rabbit 😀

You’re probably in the thick of things with the kitchen right now Vivienne – hope it all goes well. Saffron is looking rather special and matches her namesake very well too.
Have a good week.

They are such brave little flowers to face the cold winds we’ve had lately and give us all a lift at the thought of spring coming soon. Miss Saffron looks rather gorgeous and spring like too x
