Tadpoles! Following on from last month's Raindrops On Roses post where I showed the frogspawn in my little pond, I've finally got tadpoles. Last year was the first time I'd had frogspawn in the pond but sadly, no tadpoles emerged. This year, I'm overrun with them and it's going to be a very full pond indeed if they all survive.
Easter Egg. Just the one. I rarely get an Easter egg these days but Mick treated me this year. I've made it last and enjoyed every mouthful.
Little House on the Prairie. I'm working my way through all the past episodes of this 1970's TV series set in the 19th century American west. I'm on to series four now, there's nine series in total so I'm not even half way through yet, though I'm in no rush to finish, I just watch an episode here and there when I've got an hour to myself. I used to love watching this programme when I was a child and I'm enjoying it just as much this time round.
Blossom. April's the month when fruit trees burst in to colour and it's always a beautiful sight. My own little cherry and apple trees are flowering at the moment but this magnificent tree is at Lotherton Hall where we went for a walk on Sunday.
Indie dyed yarn. I learnt to knit as a child and followed the hobby through to my teens. I had a break from knitting for many years before picking my needles up again back in 2010. I'd given up work that year and had a little extra time on my hands, it's funny how we go back to old hobbies when we're not so rushed in life. It wasn't long after rediscovering knitting that I came across some independent dyers, I've bought many skeins from Laughing Yaffle since discovering their gorgeous yarn back in 2011 and I've still got three skeins from there in my stash, and I'm using some yarn from Wharfedale Woolworks at the moment that I've had in my stash since 2011. I'm discovering new indie dyers all the time and I'm building up quite a collection of scrumptious yarn, the photo above is just a small selection of what I've got in my stash.
What favourites do you have this month? How about joining me and writing a post about them?
