Bluebells, Lilacs and Knitting

Posted on

Spring has sprung and ‘my’ world is full of new blues and greens. I leave a patch of my garden here in the UK wild. Nature takes over, bluebells pop up – this year they are glorious.

Lilacs have arrived too. In Sussex my German sister in law has snipped off a few to adorn her dining table. They are so beautiful. This lilac bush was just a twig from Germany a few years ago and this is the first year there are blooms to enjoy.

I have just returned from a few days in France and lilacs are in my garden there as well. I only wish you could smell their wonderful scent.

And a little knitting for the journey to France. I switched between this new pale green wrap and another white lacy top currently being worked on. You could say is was a ‘mystery’ knit. I printed off a pattern before I left but the printer ran out of ink so I had the instructions but not the photos. It’s called Spring Roll by Anne Baker. It even has ‘Spring’ in it’s name! So there’s a little bit of my Spring. I hope you enjoy the views.

    Love lilac. We have an old tree near our factory. I would like to take some cuttings from it.

      Enjoying the blooms was kind of brief – we’ve had rain, rain, rain today and I can see how bashed down the bluebells are! Thanks re my new project.

    The bluebells are magnificent at the moment! ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m coverting everyone’s lilac too -we use to have a beautiful lilac tree at our old house, but none here.

    Beautiful flowers – it made me smile to look at them! And speaking of beautiful – I love that pale green yarn you are using to knit your piece.

      Thank you. The yarn is a Louisa Harding, it has very gentle metallic thread in it though you can’t see in the photo.
