A little candy and Spring blossom

Candy now closed - winners above - post 2/6/10
Hi peeps, by the time you read this we should be motoring through France on our way to the wedding. I have a couple of posts scheduled over the next week or so with DT work, but time has rather rather got the better of me and despite all the best laid plans nothing more than that.

So instead of being able to visit you all or leave you anything interesting to look at, here's a little candy for my blog buddies and followers.........nothing huge, but I am often asked about the beaded pins I use, so I made a collection up and have added some other bits and pieces and will split it into two so there can be a couple of winners.

Feel free to spread the word and leave me a comment and I will pick two winners when we get home next week.

And I just had to share these pictures of the May blossom in the top paddock hedgerow. I adore the beautiful white blossoms tinged with pink and the heady scent in the evenings and look forward to it every year. And if you can imagine the whole hedgerow interspersed with these bushes and trees you can get an idea of the sheer beauty.
Unfortunately by the time we return from France it will probably be over, but at least I have some pictures of it with the beautiful blue sky we have had all weekend.

  34. We had a hedge like that in the last garden and I love this time of year for that reason. The journey to and from work was a joy as there was so much along the roadside too. We have a few bushes here and they are just coming into bloom. Hope you have a wonderful time and the wedding goes well.

  39. My very best wishes to the happy couple and I hope you all have the most wonderful time with sunshine all the way.

    Thank you for sharing these wonderful photos Brenda. That blossom is truly beautiful. We have trees full of the blossom just over our garden fence but unfortunately can't let them get that big as the garden is relatively small. They are still pretty though!
