Spring things

What a difference a bit of spring sunshine makes! I took some photos yesterday morning of our camellia as there was suddenly a bud opening. Then I took another photo yesterday evening as the bud was starting to open. Then this morning I went out and the flower is almost totally open! Here are the three photos in sequence.

Wonderful! I am looking forward to seeing all the other flowers coming out in the garden.
The dandelion I gave to Poppy yesterday did the exact opposite! It disappeared in a matter of seconds.

I also sneaked into my neighbours garden to photograph his tulips opening. Again the 1st photo is yesterday and then this morning.

I am afraid I am not going to be able to show you before and after photos of our chimney going bright spring green as Clive started painting it unexpectedly whilst I was in the garden. But I will definitely post some photos when it is finished.
I have finally, after a week away from my craft table, done some work on my minis this morning. Not very much I have to admit though. I have started to paint the Lydia Pickett Dining table and chairs. I have also finally decided that I want the bedroom ceiling in the Sea Shanty white - so I have started the task of over painting the green that had seemed like a good idea previously!

Hiya! Oh I love the flowers gradually opening, nice one! I love camellias, gorgeous flowers.

Poppy is looking such a cutie with that dandelion flower! :D I think she knows how pretty she is. Awww!
