Seasonal beadspiration

I love finding nature's beads in all sorts of places - flower buds, pebbles, the beady eye of a bird - all sorts of things count!

I thought I'd share some 'beads' I've spotted out in the wild recently....

 This is going to be a round courgette - I can't wait for it to grow up so I can stuff it and bake it and eat it!

 Meet Spike. You can just see his beady eye. He's got grey skin and yellow spikes, and might grow up to be a collared dove. To look at him now, that's a bit of a stretch. More like something on the horror channel.

 Beads in the wild! Gorgeous lime tree with heady, heavy scent - utterly glorious. And lots of beads on it.....

 No beads in this one, but plenty of inspiration. South Downs, fence and hogweed. Stunning Sussex.

 Lime leaves - I love all the shades of green both where they overlap and where they don't.
