Well not really rocks, though the ground does look a bit rocky in this photograph! It’s another of my occasional posts about my garden and baking. These are a few cyclamen that I planted years ago but are still managing to come up despite all the changes. I am also rejoicing in my sedum spectabile. which is… Read More Lets Rock ‘n’ Roll!
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.
In May I showed you how I was working on adapting a pattern to make a pair of slippers. I am making the second one now! I also showed you the new larger pot holder I had made and some recent purchases of crochet hooks and a whole variety of yarn. I have just included… Read More Montage – May
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
Not the real ones I am afraid! When I was a child although we lived in suburbia there were hay fields (with hedges) and a copse at the back of our house. In the summer there were red poppies and all sorts of other flowers in among the waist high grass. No, these poppies are… Read More Poppies
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
Had a bit of a funny week. On Monday I saw the consultant prior to my fourth and final chemo cycle. He decided that I should not have the infusion this time, only the tablets which left me both relieved and anxious. Relieved that I wouldn’t have to face the increasingly unpleasant side effects and… Read More Past and future!
I have finally manged to finish the hybrid socks I started after finishing the rainbow ones. Hybrid because I used the left over yarn from my recent mini mochi socks and that left over from the pale rainbow ones I made years ago. Here they are. I was rather pleased that they came out so long… Read More Finally my hybrid socks!
