I'm feeling horribly blue today with no real reason behind it! Well, a poor night's sleep probably didn't help. So here are a few things that I am very thankful for.

Acquilegias are one of my very favourite flowers. There are so many hybrids in my garden, just from two original plants. These here, however are from seed that I snaffled a couple of years ago and this is the first time they've flowered.

Charm, darling little rabbit, just beginning to recover from losing his Dad, Bigwig. He doesn't leave his hutch much these days so I take the dandelions to him even though his door is open all day!

My herbs are looking lush and there are a couple of visiting flowers sneaking in as well.

My darling cat Max, still in remission, very thankful for that.

I've scrubbed the base that the hen house sat on and have replanted my apple and pear trees.

Another visitor on the steps of the Studio. The photo has leached out the colour, but these are a delicate pastel pink.

What beautiful Grandmothers Bonnets, especially the blue and white ones! My garden has a distinct lack of blooms at this time of year. I am going round to my mothers at the weekend with a trowel in hand to try and snaffle some of her spring flowers.
Hope the blueness goes away soon xxxx

My Aquilegias appear to have been a bit promiscuous too, and I have some I CANNOT remember buying - I thought I'd just planted ones that had self-seeded (hundreds of those here). I had a bluey-purple clematis-petalled one last year which has turned my pinks to lilacs and pinky-purple!

Oooh, it all happens in your garden, BB, ;)
