  1. What a lovely zingy post, and the rose hip garlands are especially beautiful. I shall set my daughters to work on making them.

  4. Bright and beautiful! Love the blue glass vase - I have a collection of blue glass items started with a wine bottle a friend was chucking out!

  7. They're lovely Sue. How long will the garlands last? They'd be great to use at Christmas too.

    1. First time I've made them, but I'm not expecting them to last long as the crab apples are already bruised.

  8. I love this post Sue, for some reason it reminded me of Shirley Hughes 'Old shoes, new shoes, bright shiny blue shoes'. Not sure why, perhaps the rhythm of your words or the fact that my brain is a bit crazy at the moment. Anyway you have brightened my day xxx

    When I saw those rose hips I thought you'd been making syrup

  11. Gorgeous colours and lovely little wreaths. I remember the 'Old shoes, new shoes' book from Shirley Hughes - haven't thought of that for ages! The garlands really are brilliant!

    Lovely pics as usual! I was thinking of your mosaics and thought that you could turn them into cards, one for each month of the year in a pack of 12 and sell them. Wouldn't that be lovely? x Pati

    Sunday. Like new page layout Sue. You seem to have a knack for bright, vivid, bold photos and the new layout actually makes the photos 'zing' more than ever. Much appreciated on another hazy, dull day!

  16. Please bring back the old format with the pictures of quinces and everything centered! This new format makes it look like all the other blogs out there.

    1. No, sorry, not doing that. I like my new theme, I wouldn't have chosen it otherwise.

  17. A cheerful post with lovely colour. No Crab Apples here at all this year. Never mind, I still have some of the jelly with chilli to use up.
