To raise our spirits I mean. The unusually warm Spring and Summer last year certainly made the lockdown easier to bear. This year we are gradually coming out of a lockdown and I get my second jab this coming Saturday. This year Spring is much later. Just think on this 12th April last year it… Read More Last Year we had Spring this year we have the Vaccine!
End of another month. A more unusual montage this month as I have had no new knitted or crochet items to show you as I continue on with my blanket that is still just a collection of motifs. There has been Pizza! and photographs of flowers in my garden and a look back at past… Read More Monthly Montage – February

I don’t normally do silent Sunday posts but I just wanted to share these. ****
This morning I went out in the rain for a walk round Southampton Common, delighting in the joys of nature and regretting that it is not possible to take photographs in the rain. I came home, opened the curtains across the patio door and looked out to see wet paving that looked so awful underneath… Read More Too much rain isn’t good for paving!
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!
