Not much going on in the way of crafting....

Love the viola's. Such cute little faces.
We planted several types of bulbs but only 3 grew. Not impressed. This one flowered 1st. Beside it are some snapgradons.
Geraniums,
Princess De Monaco rose & geranium,

I took all these geraniums as cutting from my Mum & fortunately for me the mostly all grew. :)
Bilbergia in flower -queens tears i think it's called.

Happy Stitching,
