💚🌷💚 GARDENING KIDS Primrose & Violet (The Flowertots)

Hello everyone, how are you all?  Well, I hope.

Did you manage to get outdoors more last week?  I hope so,  if the weather was good (or bad) where you live.  I LOVE walking in the rain, so it never bothers me to go out in the rain, but I have to admit to liking the sun a tad more lol.

This week, we have some cute characters that I’ve never come across before in the guise of the Flowertots.  My kids used to watch Tiny Tots back in the 90’s.  Do you remember them?  I’m a tot and you’re a tot, Tilly, Tom & Tiny.  They loved it, along with Bump the Elephant.  Anyway, I digress.
Here’s a little vide featuring Primrose and Violet.  Enjoy.

Despite the lovely Spring weather, there are still a lot of animals that like to live underground.  Wednesday, we get to know what it’s like to live underground in a video that due out then.  You can check them out on our website at or on our Facebook page /pricklyhedge. 

If you loved the paper cherry blossom, then check out our video on Friday for #fridaycraftmorning where we’ve dug up 23 more ideas to make paper flowers.  I feel inspired.

It really does feel good to be getting out and about more in the fresh air, and I may even be able to get a walk in the park scheduled with my eldest son, it would be nice to see him for a little longer than 15 minutes on the doorstep.  Can’t wait to give him a hug, like the rest of the population.

If you have any pictures of things you’ve grown in your garden, or seeds that are already sprouting, let us know.  We’ve planted some broad beans so we’ll keep you updated on those.

Don’t forget that on our website, you’ll also find a round-up of environmental news on our How To’s page,

 As ever, if you make anything, drop a picture on the Facebook page, we’d love to see them.

I hope you have a great week and until next time, stay safe, stay well and don’t forget to let us know if you make any of our craft items.

Lots of love from Yvonne, Bubble and #TEAMPricklyHedge
