Our spring garden in the sunshine,
The first magnolia flower!
Our first EVER flower buds on the camelia (the camelia was a gift from our friend Dagmar, and she's coming over on Sunday, so I really hope it will be in bloom by then...)
Some crafty (crafting?) finds from LIDL.
Instead, I have spent half an hour in the rocking chair on the patio in the sunshine, reading...
Da, da, da...
BBC Good Homes magazine!This may not sound like much to you, but for someone who lives in a non-English-speaking country, an up-to-date English magazine is a bit of a thrill! I find that, if I buy a magazine in France, I tend to go for ones which were actually printed in Germany - I guess my taste is more in line with German bucolic colour than with French monochromatic chic.
Anyway, Ben got me the wonderful mag at Gatwick yesterday, as he had to pop over to Kent for work (it's a small world, to be able to do that in one day). Many, many thanks to him...
In it I found something I'd already seen on someone's blog:
These fantastic vintage fabric door stopper chickens! They're spring-like, they're vintage, they're environmentally friendly, they fulfil a practical function... one of those 'what's not to like?' moments. They come from ECOutlet, which has an interesting website; just click on the name for the link.
There must a be a joke about three chickens, but I can't think of one. Any suggestions welcome below... Have a lovely day!
