Seems like the primulas have seen the last of their beauty . Maybe it's the lack of water, or over watering ,I can't really tell, except that they are not as bright as usual. . So it seems like it's time for a new burst of colour. A couple of geraniums, vivid pink to brighten up my balcony and also 2 plants given to me and my daughter as presents....thankyou Pina.. It's nice to see a bit of colour. How I envy you all out there with gardens, following fellow bloggers and seeing your beautiful plants, seems to have rubbed off on me . Slowly slowly I am trying to create a little corner of my own. I even have a rosemary wee .... Anyway back to basics...cross stitching. This is my first easter egg, a Mr and Mrs bunny rabbit. I suppose they resemble chocolate bunnies. These will certainly last longer than the chocolate ones.

Sembra che le primule hanno perso la loro bellezza. Può darsi che gli mancano acqua o ne ho dato troppo,non posso dire per essatezza,ma certamente non sono più vivace come prima. Adesso é ora di cambiamenti, ci vuole un paio di gerani, rosa vivace, per illuminare il mio balcone e aggiungo a queste altre due piante, entrambi regali, molto graditi,grazie Pina. Cosi mi piace- un tocco di colore. Sono invidiosa di tutti voi con i propri giardini.Spesso seguo i vostri blog e pensando bene, e proprio a causa vostra che adesso ho di nuovo questa voglia di avere ancora un angolino verde.Ho anche una pianta di rosmarino....chi lo ha mai pensato.....Comunque tornando a base...punto croce.....Questo é il mio primo uovo di pasqua,Sig e Signora Coniglietti....sembrano coniglietti di choccolato.Certamente durerano molto di piu di quelli fatto di choccolato....

  4. I love the little bunny and egg, not to mention all the flowers!

  5. Alison, i love the little bunnies, they're so sweet!
    Your flowers are still looking great, better than my primulas in pots which are damping off and rotting a bit - the ones in the ground are fine.
    The geraniums will be beuatiful and last for months.
    For years I lived in flats in London so I know what its like not to have any garden - we never had a balcony even.
    So I do enjoy my garden now.
    Rosemary is a lovely plant for a balcony, and with your flowers it will look lovely.
    The braid I got from an etsy shop called roxycreations - came posted from Italy but not sure if they are italian - must check.
    We are both setting up our blog shops at the same time!!!!! I have to get my head round the paypal thing as I'm ready to start posting a few things but dont know the mechanics of how people would pay if they wanted to buy! What sort of things will you sell - your great vintage finds?
    Good luck!! I cant decide how i want mine to look - i keep changing it!
