Hello everyone , 
Well here we are the start of May.
I am trying to keep up with everything , even though we are very busy right now.
I am growing lots of seeds and pricking them out .
And de-heading the old flower heads.
We had our first heavy rain yesterday for over a month so that will do the garden so good.
I have stitched a little but again not much time to spare last week or this week then I hope to be back to normal.
So lets show you first another little stitch I stitch for Easter.
                   Sweet little rabbits playing in the sunshine.

                         Design by the lovely Dany.
                        Called Printemps Dans Le Pre .
                  Stitched on a off white 28ct evenweave .
                              and any dmc  thread .
                 May brings such beautiful flowers
                   and these are ones I love so much Lilly Of The Vally .

                           Wonderful perfume .
                    And now my WIP Last time .

And now.

I was out shopping one day last week and found some frames going cheap so just had to have them .

                 The hearts were just £1.50 in the sale.

And this one £2.50 from a second hand shop .
Now I will keep looking to see what I can stitch to fit in them.
Come on take my hand while you are here and lets see what we have in the garden that's in bloom.

                             Many of my roses are out now.

A white tulip.

I will show you more next time
I am trying to make my back garden into a old cottage garden .
With flowers out most of the year but it takes a few years to get it all growing to how I want it.
Thank you again for your kindness lovely comments and your friendship wishing you all a lovely May.
