Wednesday Wonder: Autumn Gardens!

Winter pansies

Thank you sondyaustin for the lovely photo.Some of our little friends have been asking what Flower Belle gets up to in autumn and winter, when there aren’t so many flowers.

Well, she’s busy looking after the pretty flowers that grow at this time of year, like winter pansies. Did you know that pansies have many different names? Flower Belle’s favourite is ‘Jump Up and Kiss Me’!

Flower Belle is also busy planting and caring for the thousands of bulbs that will flower next spring. It’s thanks to her hard work now that you’ll enjoy cheerful daffodils, tulips and many other beautiful spring flowers!

Autumn leaves

Flower Belle’s other favourite autumn activity is fluttering around gardens and admiring the beautiful colours! Red, orange, gold and yellow - so pretty!

In fact, all those colours gave Flower Belle an idea for a fun make… an autumn flower made out of leaves. Why not give it a go?

Autumn Leaf Flower

Make An Autumn Flower Collage

You need:

A4 paper
Lots of autumn leaves
PVA glue and glue brush
Glitter glue

  • Choose several large leaves and brush the back of each one with glue.
  • Stick them down to the card to look like flower petals.
  • Now do the same with the smaller leaves, layering them on top of the large ones.
  • Take a small leaf, roll it up and stick it to the centre of your leaf flower.
  • Now for some glittery fun: brush glitter glue over the leaves and put a large blob inside the leaf in the centre.

Our leaf flower reminds Flower Belle of an autumn daffodil. What do you think?

We hope you have good, glittery fun trying this at home! Love and magic dust from Flower Belle and all her friends in Bellevue. xxx
