Awesome Blossom

I just LOVE this time of year. There is pretty blossom sprouting everywhere! In our front garden we have pretty blossom on a tree called Amelanchier 'Ballerina' (it was named after me I think!) and our lovely old cherry tree. It's a cheery sight to welcome you home. But do you know why trees have blossom? And why does it only last a few weeks? Well, read on to find out why and also, how to make a lovely Spring blossom card.

Look, I have plum tree blossom
coming out of the top of my head!

Daft on Daffodils

Isn't it wonderful to see the beautiful displays of daffodils at the moment? They seem to be in almost every garden with their nodding, golden heads heralding the start of Spring. They are very cheery (a bit like me!) So here's a lovely daffodil craft project you can do during the school holidays to add some daffodil cheer to the inside of the home as well as the garden...
