I hadn’t intended to post anything today because I thought more about the coat would be boring and I didn’t really have much else to show you. However the weather was perfect for gardening this morning so I went out to pick up the dead leaves round the apple tree. Now, I bought the apple… Read More More apple tales and garden flowers
You may remember my sadness that my apple tree had no blossom this year. I had at one point thought I saw a blossom but when I looked closer I couldn’t see it. Then this morning when opening an upstairs window I looked out at the garden and thought that I could see an apple… Read More I found an apple under my tree!
I almost forget about making a montage for June. So here it is: better late than never. I told you about how I had managed to acquire more yarn than I intended when I bought a bargain bundle and my outing to Lee-on-Solent to the Hovercraft museum with the family and how we got to… Read More Monthly Montage – June
Every year I take a few cloves from the garlic I have in the fridge and plant them in the little bit of earth next to my patio rose. I normally do this in September, then leave them alone till June when they are normally showing signs of being ready to dig up. I have… Read More This Year’s Harvest

Now a year later I have twelve months’ worth. And here they all are. From June to May. left to right and top to bottom. My one… Read More A Year of Flowers
While washing up the dishes what should I see out of the window? This was actually taken from upstairs as you get to see more from there. A double rainbow and even the main rainbow seemed to be double and have the colours repeating faintly below the main arc.
No knitting again this month. I must get around to finishing my cardigan and socks! However I did have a couple of photographs showing different ways to celebrate Easter and two sorts of crochet. Cotton crochet in the form of my Summer Bunting and acrylic yarn crochet in terms of my latest blanket. I shared… Read More Monthly Montage – April
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!
