Most of the flowers we planted in the spring have shot up and are displaying gorgeous colourful blooms and, attracted by the vivid colours, the garden seems to have become a playground for all sorts of creatures, not least flittering, fluttering butterflies!
Needless to say, before too long, the "miniature reflex" had kicked in and we were working on some pieces inspired by our little patch of land...here are the results!
The plate is handpainted with a flower and butterfly motif and we even made some flower and butterfly cookies to go with it.
And this is a selection of handmade miniature flowers in a tiny planter in the shape of a teacup (we're still looking for a real full-sized planter like this for the garden - tell us if you know where we can find one!).
Both pieces are now available on eBay:
