Been so busy lately thinking about health matters (nothing to worry about everything is fine!) that I forgot all about a montage for June. In June, I told you about the dinosaur I made for my Grandson’s birthday and a Never-Ending card I made for my granddaughter’s birthday. I also had a post about the… Read More Monthly Montage – June
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
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
In April I once more shared a lot of cooking and flowers. There were the Hot Cross buns and Simnel muffins I made for Easter time and a couple of loaves of bread. The same ideal recipe but first as a Farmhouse loaf and then as more of a Bap shape. Now able to get… Read More April Montage
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 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!
Last weekend I noticed that the fuchsia in the pot in the front was already putting out shoots. So knowing that once I’d had my next infusion I would have to keep in the warm I decided that I had better do some pruning. I also have a Mrs Popple fuchsia in the back garden that… Read More I did some gardening! and snow!!
Today I allowed myself a little time in the garden, inspite of it being very cold, to take a few photographs and sprinkle eggshells round vulnerable plants to keep off the slugs. Luckily I have a good view on the garden so I have been able to keep in touch with what has been growing,… Read More Signs of Spring
I offered photographs for three of the month’s Photo Challenge subjects: Favourite, Cross and Wave. Normally I try to arrange these photographs next to each other and in sequence but that was too tricky this month but I expect you can see which they were. Really a lot of photographs this month as I also… Read More Monthly Montage June
