Waiting for bells

Back a few months ago, on a misty November morning I made the effort and planted these. I'm so glad that I did. Its always amazing when they flower and the perfume is wonderful!



I'm waiting for more bells to arrive. So the small hares have come to a halt for the time being. The two large ones though are complete and will be listed on Etsy shortly, along with the small thrush below.



I know I said that I might name the hares (and it is a lovely idea) However I have since decided against it. The reason being after giving them a name, I found myself umming and ahhing over whether the colours were right for the personality etc. Thinking they needed individual items hanging on them which suited each.
This all takes valuable time, so I think the naming of hares for the time being will be placed in the hands of whosoever their new owners will be.







And so for the blog giveaway!
Thankyou to everyone that left a comment and for of all your well wishes for the blog birthday. All the comments were numbered and the lucky one picked out was number 14 from Pamela and Edward!

  1. How lovely to have flowers already, it still feels like we're in the grip of winter here, lol!

    And that's understandable about deciding not to name them. I still have my eye on "Rupert" can't wait to see him with charms. :-)

  2. I never thought to give my white hare a name, he's hanging here in my studio with the light catching in his glass charms, and very charming he looks too!

    Hyacinths smell of springtime to me, I particularly love the white ones. It's nice to get a reward for gardening in November isn't it?

  6. Huzzah!! What a wonderful surprise for us this morning! I am beyond tickled and shall email your my address post haste!! I do so love your work.

    And, I do understand about the naming thing. I should think it would make them harder to ship away if you'd named them.

  11. You are right to leave the naming to the owners! Each hare is individual and unique with unique owners! They are so beautiful and elegant. Have a lovely day out there in the U.K.! Anita
