I made my daughter a set of Celtic Coasters as I wasn’t sure what to make to give her for her birthday and I had a vague memory of promising her some of these coasters in the past. I had intended to make either four or six but when I decided to use all seven… Read More A birthday present!
For those of you who follow Wild Daffodil’s blog as well as mine this will be something of a reprise, though as seen by a visitor who forgot to put the SD card in her camera! – I blame the uncertain weather, so many other things to think about, like what to wear and what… Read More A Day in Dorset
Those of you who have been following me for a while might remember my ‘Adventure’ posts. However, when you have an outing sometimes “You just want to wander!” and so this is a record of some of that wandering. The weather has been so hot lately that it has actually put me off going very… Read More Sometimes you just want to wander!
Ashmoleon Museum A few weeks ago I was in Oxford, the day I delivered the slippers, and I decided to spend some time in the Ashmolean Museum. At the time they had three Free Exhibitions and I went and looked at each of them. But first I went up to the roof terrace and had… Read More Four Exhibitions
I took the pictures for this post a week ago but was too busy to put it together. So here is some views of my garden recently. I was pleased to find that my Vagabond clematis had a new flush of flowers. but less so to see that the slugs had been busy lower down. I was… Read More For those who like such things – more flowers and bread
Joining in with Wild Daffodil’s photo challenge.The prompt for this month’s photo challenge is Sunlight. All of these photographs are from the archive. First a water lily and it’s shadow. A rose glowing all the more because of the sunlight. Sun on a spider’s web creating shadows on the grass. and lighting up a cloud.
Just another post from my garden – because I can. The flowers on the ‘Lemon Dream’ clematis I showed you have died but down below there are more. There is also a flower from the other clematis I planted next to it. (A shorter one called ‘The Vagabond’.) The other side of the garden my ‘Diana’s… Read More Of Clematis and Apples
My garden is very important to me even though I am not much of a ‘gardener’. So I like to share what’s happening. I was very pleased a few days ago to see the first flowers on my clematis that I planted not last autumn but the one before. At one point I wondered if… Read More Garden update
I am really beginning to feel that Spring is coming. Last time I showed you a portrait of some forget-me-nots, one of my favourite flowers. But when I went out later into the back garden, I realised that the forget-me-nots were happy colonising odd locations like here in this crevice or growing in the wall. … Read More Flowers and my garden
I had to go out to Eastleigh on Saturday because my washing-up bowl had a crack in the bottom and the one I had purchased from John Lewis, although ostensibly the same size, in fact had a smaller base and my everyday plates wouldn’t lie flat in it. I had brought the previous one from… Read More We had more snow!!!
