I hope you all had a lovely Easter weekend. The sun is out today and it is lovely! My magnolia Stellata is flowering and enjoying the sunshine.
I made some chocolate butterfly cakes...
...and picked some primroses and primulas for the seasonal tree table.
Lots of eggs were added to the display. I also decided that when the glass vases weren't holding little posies, they looked a bit bare, so made some polymer flowers in pastel colours to sit on them. I had seen some ceramic flowers made into rings and brooches at the vintage fairs and thought I could do something like that.
I was very pleased with how they turned out. I used a blend of colours and my flower moulds, and then dusted some mica powder in the middles to add a little shine.
Apologies for the photo - it just wasn't bright enough when I took it, so it is rather glaring, thanks to the flash.
Even the close up is a bit glaring - but gives you the idea! I have been in the garden today, rescuing some much loved astrantia plants from some rather too vigorous crocosmia/montbretia (which has needed doing for ages!) and hope that the sun continues to shine as there is always so much to do at this time of year.
