Birds and the Bees


One of my favorite springtime activities is watching all the little Chickadees 

that frequent our bird feeder.  

So inspired by all the little Chickadees here, I made this cute little 

felt version. 





I was as happy as the Chickadees when I discovered that the little Lilac 

tree I've had in a container on the deck for 4 years started blooming

this spring!  




Of course, they are too small to cut and I am sure the whole 

plant could use some TLC since it just wintered over as is, 




but this little Lilac tree has given me hope that wherever it 

might end up this summer will continue to thrive and bloom

in the future. 



For those of you that follow me on Instagram

you might have seen that I am working on a new pattern called 

The Hotel of Bees Shawl.




The pattern consists of sections that resemble honeycomb, and little 

bees like in the photo below.  

It's such a fun pattern to work.  If you'd like more information about the 

pattern, crochet along, or the pattern designer you can find the links 

on my Instagram. 





Since participating in the Hotel of Bees crochet along, I've become 

increasingly smitten with anything bee related!  

Look at these cute little cookie stamps I found at Sur la Table










Ok, no more cookie baking or crocheting right now.  I am going to be 

busy, busy, busy as a bee (or a Chickadee) these next two months! 

Hopefully I can explain a little further the next time 

I'm able to buzz in with a post.





Until then, thank you for stopping by for a visit and a cup of tea!

I always enjoy your posts and photography! You give me hope to pot a lilac tree; one of my favorites.

It was SO nice to see you pop up in my reader, Becca!
That shawl is gorgeous, I just love the yarn you are using for it.
Your lilac looks just great. Ours have quite a few buds now, but it will be a while before they actually bloom. I am very much looking forward to that.

Have a wonderful weekend!
xo.
