My Erosion Bundle Opened

I was late opening up my erosion bundle due to health problems recently but as it was such a gorgeous Spring day today, I thought it was high time that I did this.  Here are some photos of how things turned out.
 My little bundle in its resting place.

Hard to see but tiny marks have been imprinted onto these strips.
Several rusty marks from various metal items inside.

A circular rust mark from a metal washer (again, hard to see in the photo).
This was my first attempt at this project and it is quite bland really compared to a lot of the others.  If I do this project again, I will add something which will discharge a colour inside such as berries or fruit as there will be more amazing effects I think.  Today, I have hung all the pieces inside out in the fresh air to air off before I try to consider what I am going to do with them.

First Trip Out In The Warm Spring Sunshine

Saturday was my first trip out post-op and although I am not back to full strength just yet, I was able to shuffle slowly around this very pretty garden with Mr V-B to get out of the house for a little while.

The weather has been unseasonally warm just lately here in the UK and so we went along to  the Abbey House Gardens in Malmesbury to see their fabulous tulip display and what a display it was.  Last Winter they planted 24,000 tulip bulbs!!

It's so lovely to feel some pleasantly warm rays on your skin after the very cold winter we have just had!
