Home animals the little things


It has been such a beautiful day here today, what a way to welcome April.

It’s a day like this that makes you appreciate the little things in life.


Like sweet pea seedlings shooting up in a very warm greenhouse.


Little plants waiting to be potted up.


A pair of buzzards circling and calling out, high above my garden.


Blooming flowering currant.


Almost blooming cherry blossom.


Lily catching a few rays.


Freshly baked wheaten bread.


A blue sky through the ‘almost blossom’.


Daffodils everywhere!


Wrapping up springtime bunnies for their journey to their new homes.

Take time to enjoy the little things….happy Tuesday and happy April!!! 🙂

A lovely post to celebrate April. The flowers are beautiful.
Love the pretty bunny packaging.
I never heard of wheaten bread. Is it a kind of soda bread?
Happy Spring!

What a lovely post, Vivienne, the colours of all your flowers are so wonderful and your wheaten bread looks fascinating, is it like soda bread?

Spring is well and truly springing at yours! My bloomin’ sweet peas are refusing to germinate – boo 🙁 Hope the sunny days are continuing. Bx

Hi V, all the spring bunny girls were just lovely. In the last fortnight I’ve been inside and also heard a pair of buzzards calling so I rush outside just to see them swooping high above all my little garden bird friends who I guess are not on the buzzards menu! It’s great to see and hear them isn’t it.
Might I say your bread looks yummy 🙂 xx
