Floral Finds

Hello there!
I hope you have had a great week....over here on the Causeway Coast the sun has finally come out & the flowers have been enjoying a sunny respite from the rain
I've been trying to get a better grasp of instagram & its amazing filters, but unfortunately I think (yet again) my children are better at it than me... This is Hannah's photo from a sunset walk....
Anyway, if you are on instagram do let me know, or if you have any tips I'd love to hear them... I'm birdsongstitches - I think...
As you can probably tell, I've been spending a lot of time in the garden enjoying the flowers & scents (in between weeding & grass cutting) & dreaming up lots of stitchy possibilities,  so I thought I would share some flowery loveliness with you ...

Take care


  1. We had sun today! My geraniums are dying due to too much rain :( Di x

  2. I have a scented rose outside the window of my sewing room and when it stops raining I can enjoy it!

  3. Hi Karen - thank you so much for including my tablecloth in your florally post! I'm on instagram too so I'm going to hook you up.

  4. Lovely pics but the sun is also not here. Wondering who is the lucky one ...

  5. My roses are finally starting to open and I'm enjoying their subtle scent! And we've got the sun!!! For now, anyway!

  6. Lots of pretty flowers. No sun here but at least it's not raining!
