There is a wonderful Autumn feel in the air lately and while mooching round my local garden centre last week I noticed these colourful bulbs all ready for planting - I rather like the textures and colours of the different varieties.  I'm afraid the photos aren't brilliant as I was taking them in rather a hurry and had an armful of shopping! 

I am linking these to Colour Me Weekly and Mosaic Monday.

 I also thought I'd post two tags that I have made over the last couple of weeks for Tag Tuesday.  The theme for the first one is 'Autumn Fruit and Berries' and the second one is 'Owls'.

On both tags I added a top tag of printed acetate - old text on top of the Rose hip image and a tree silhouette on top of the owl and printed silk panel. 

If you want to see some fantastic tags why not pop over to Tag Tuesday and have a nosey!


  1. I love the soft colors in the bulbs. The textures are wonderful. I love bulbs, and the flowers they produce! I love the way you use the acetate over your tags. Both of them are beautiful.

  2. I really like your bulb photos. The grouping, mosaic and textures are stunning.
    The tags are great as well! See you on Tag Tuesday,

  3. Oh! These tags are GORGEOUS! I just love 'em. Have a happy new week! Kath

  4. Thanks to your photos, when one stops to look, there's beauty even in bulbs. The tags are awesome, I will go have a look at the meme.

  5. Both tags are beautiful. I love the the overall effect the acetate gives them.
    I have been unable to join in Tag Tuesday recently but hope to be back posting tags soon.

  6. Those tags are exquisite and I love how something so simple as a hyacinth bulb can look so good especially with a palette.

  7. I love the colours and textures of the bulbs and these photos should give you some brilliant inspiration for textiles over the coming months!

  8. Hi Diana
    I found your blog recently when I was blog hopping. I have decided to follow you. I love your work and that little owl tag is just gorgeous.It is wonderfully autumnal at the moment; a very special time of year. Did you buy the bulbs; I was just wondering?

  9. Mmmm,I'm just longing for Fall, being teased by brief feels of it in the mornings and evenings...your bulbs and tags all give me that Autumn feeling... I love the tags, especially the owl - gorgeous layering... You're making me want to play with acetate...

  10. Both are so beautiful, but the little owl took my heart! So Lovely <3
    I´m so glad I´d found my way over here.
    Thanks for dropping by my side of the world;)
