Limbering up for Mothers Day
I've been busy with the lovely willow I got last month making heart bases in different sizes (some really small that will fit in a 15cm box) and getting some dried flowers together to make some Mother's Day and Easter treats in preparation for the Whiteladies Road Farmers Markets on the 2nd and 16th April in Bristol.
I'm getting there. Really pleased with them now. Here is the small heart wreath (above) which will be boxed with gift cards, and below is the regular size heart wreath. These have nigella but some will have dried roses - all of them slightly different.
I now need to update the website but want to get these finished before I do.
Also sowing nigella, poppies and shortly going to make some more lavender cuttings in order that I have lots of new materials to work with during the summer.
Have fed all the soft fruit (the tays, blackcurrants and raspberries are beginning to bud) and dug out this week's weed of the week... the buttercup - well, as much as I could. There are a million gardening jobs also to be done and other things to sow. Its the spring equinox today and it feels good. I am list making like mad and scurrying around... need to take some more photos but these will do for now....
