Pretty things around the house


These Snowflakes and Violets are popping up in my garden at the moment. . . .


 they fit so beautifully in my little bottles . . . and the Camelia's are exceptionally large.


Before I raided the garden I found these lovely Tulips on sale in my colours and just had to have them.  I really bought them for Donald as they are his favourite flowers that remind him of Canada, as everybody used to grow them in their gardens in Spring.


And then there's the not so pretty. . . . . .


Donald, Sam and Ethan have been spending a lot of time collecting and painting the Lord of the Rings miniatures.  They may not look so pretty but they spend hours putting on the details of each figure.


Our dining room and window sills are taken over by the little scary fellows.




So now you see why I need to have my little pretty touches around the house, because the rest of the place looks like a workshop.

LOve love love the flowers.. tulips are a personal fav of mine too. Love eating violets, though haven't told the boys yet as they'd probably eat every poisonous flower in our street!

(pssst.. they're snowflakes) love them too.

Thanks Suzi, will amend to snowflakes. I wasn't quite sure, when I googled snowdrops a couple of varieties came up, so decided they were snowdrops.

The garden at your house is very impressive - or maybe you are impressive at choosing, arranging and photgraphing the flowers.
