I have pulled out Carrie Rose
I am able to get on with some before the next section is published using other sections, this is another design with repeat patterns. I really could not find anything new to start, I really fancy stitching with loads of colour and filling the whole canvas with stitches, much like patchwork. I'm going to get my thinking head on.
I have also to finish these santa's
We popped to our local nursery this morning
I wanted a few Alpines and herbs
I did not buy any extra plants
I really don't have any room in any of my beds.
The Alpines planted, I pulled two apart and have another plant of each,
The third went in my china pot, I had this pot since the 70's
I love to see a group of plants on this old table.
This photo is so full of promise
all three fruits have flowers and some fruits.
I really did not have much to do in the garden, alot of my Aquilegia had self seeded in the side garden, so I dug out loads of plants, I have used 4 around our garden and gave another 7 to Chris across the road, who came back with two huge clumps of English bluebells and 7 'plant them and see what they are plants'. I have also planted another 5 Aquilegia's to pass to Win next month. I love this time of year, we all plant swap. Tomorrow I want to pop into Wilko's, I require another 2 little black fences to finish around the fruit garden, and I want a small arch for the veg plot and my climbing French beans.
I also spent an hour thinning the seedlings in my veg plot.
Hubby is watering the new lawn and all the fruit around the plot and the best bit we still have another two days off together.
