Colors of spring

In the blogs I read regularly I have seen one beautiful garden after an another. There are many colorful flowers blooming everywhere, some so vivid you can almost smell them through the screen. In here the situation is definitely not hopeless but the smell of the roses is not in the air yet. That said there are still things growing in my garden too.

Oh, the colors - shall we pick them up? Sure, I am certain there will be more appearing later...

Hello little birdies! And bugs - coming in very springly colors this time I see?

And hey - what is that? Something new in this garden, let's take a closer look...

Brooches! Matching (naturally) brooches!

Oh my, oh my.


I have been knitting in my garden and there have been some springly-color-picking, as those little pouches and the matching pins show. Not all the pouches have the pin to match (oho!) in here yet but I am working on it, friends. Sun shines and birdies sing, I am in love with spring!

Wishing you all the wonderful things in life!

Nämä ovan niin kauniita! Taidankin mennä tekemään heti erikoistilausta Etsyyn, tahdon ihan ehdottomasti jonkinlaisen rintaneulan :)

Mia said...

Thank you so much, Lily&Leah,

I think we needed so pretty colors before flowers bloom!

Have a wonderful day and sunny weekend soon!

Mia said...

Thank you, Jane!

I am so happy this post came back (and I am still waiting all the comments to return too) from blogg-verse :)

Now I am off to wave my Finnish flag to our Paradise Oskar in Eurovision finals!

Happy weekend!

Oh my, now you are spoiling us as they look even cuter with their matching pouches (I'm reading backwards today, playing catch-up again). Bethx

Mia said...

Thanks Beth! And how's blogger been working for you lately? Many comments from this post are still missing from last weeks hiccups :(

Happy greetings from Finland!


This time of the year...

Usually around this time, when children go back to school, and you can just about to smell the autumn, I start to dig deeper in my fabric...
