For the last 10 years, my garden has been a football pitch, sandpit and vegetable garden. Now that my boys’ are older the garden is back to being a more adult domain, so I have been researching the top garden trends for 2019. One of the biggest things I have noticed is that garden trends seem to stick around. it is not about moving on from one trend to the nest and sustainability is a BIG thing.
This simple cotton pad and q-tip Calla lily craft is a great kids craft is brought to you by Flowers for Everyone. I am a big fan of flowers and love to have them in my house and this week the boys bought me a bunch of Calla lilies for the office, which inspired these stunning everlasting flower craft. Most people will have everything they need to make these in their home already.
Spring is one of my favorite seasons and I have been seeing pictures of daffodils flowering, but where we are in the NE of the UK are a couple of weeks behind, so we decided to take matters into our own hands and make some two colour daffodil pinwheels. These would also be the perfect St Davis’s Day craft (which is on the 1st March).
Now and then it’s good to pause in our pursuit of happiness and just be happy. Guillaume Apollinaire This kind of hits it on the head for me at the moment. I need to stop all the hustle and bustle, all the pushing and pulling and just be. So this morning I am thankful for the boys returning from the shop with some lovely flowers and I bit my tongue about not having enough money.
I never used to like roses, but they have literally begun to grow on me. I have been lucky enough to get a couple of bunches from Aldi over the last couple of weeks. My images don’t do them justice, these are a very pale lilac colour and have a parchment coloured tip. There are two weeks old and a lovely now they are on the wain. I got these with my shop this week, they are a pale cream with a peachy centre and they are just divine. It is wonderful how a bunch of flowers can make a real difference to my mood.
