Blossom, Booties and Boys

Wow, what wonderful weather we have had this week, more Summer than Spring.
We have spent the weekend pottering about the garden and visiting the boating lake, which has a fabulous park and coffee shop.
A lovely afternoon was spent sitting outside the coffee shop, looking over the lake and admiring the most beautiful blossom.


I was quite impressed with this picture as it was taken on my mobile phone.
Once the coffee and cake had been consumed we walked over to the park area, unfortunately Dudley wasn't allowed on the park, so he and I sat on the grass near by, whilst Scott took Isla-Rose on the swings. I even managed to get a little crocheting done, perfect.

I'm still heavily inspired by the Royal theme at the moment and found the most amazing buttons on Folksy, Alexis Barn Creates... , gorgeous handcrafted buttons.
Here is what I have done with them...





So that's the blossom and booties, now for the boys !!.................................................










How cute !! They even have similar hair.

Speak soon xx

You know they say dogs often look like their owners so that probably explains the similarities. Very cute! Oh... Cute booties too! :)

lovely booties! They buttons really set them off. Was it the boating lake at the Uni in Beeston? They've redone the park at the windmill in Sneinton, I don't know if you've tried it.

Isn't the weather just fabulous? I amamazed at how many BBQ's I keep smelling! Love your royal boy's booties, too sweet for words. Beautiful photo of Dudley and Dylan they look like they have a lovely bond.

Ps. Re: how long have I been knitting for, well I was taught basic knitting at school and then only took it up about 6 months ago and have tried really hard to conquer basic patterns and new stitches, it's rather addictive once you start you can't stop xox

Lovely photos!

I agree, the weather has been wonderful. It has been quite breezy here today so a lot of the blossom is now on the ground, which is sad in a way, but my daughter loves it - she says it looks like there has been a big wedding!

Oh my! If you visit me today, you will see that our weather is just awful. Official school closing due to dust. Sounds like you had a lovely day. Love that last photo with similar hair! :) Have a wonderful Wednesday. Tammy
