We arrived home last night,
our SIL had to drive through heavy rain on our way home from Gatwick
This post is the crafty side of our holiday
I got these so very cheaply, these are mine
I also got some for my sister.
Taken to a new level, granny squares at their best
We also went to La Orotava
where lace is hand made
I love to see this work
So fine, this was a table cloth
Old photo of ladies working together
My other love plants
This came home with me
It's looking good after the journey,
now to nurture it and let it grow.
It's on my sunny windowsill
We did loads of walking all down hill, with taxi's back to our hotel. Puerto de la Cruz is the oldest resort on the island and lovely to visit. The coast line is rugged, often tumbling down to the sea, where the waves crashing against rocks sound and look amazing. Our hotel on the edge of town, high on the hill side gave us wonderful views of the mountain, volcano and the shore line. We ate out most days, enjoying the Continental way of people watching.
I got packet of seeds, to give me new challenges, I have had a tour of my garden, all is looking well, the rain last night has helped everything along. I picked a small bowl of tomatoes, and have loads of peppers and chillies almost ready for harvest. The contents of my green house are all looking great, a nice watering this morning set every thing going again.
Both Purdy and Grace are pleased to see us back home, our youngest daughter has been looking after them both.
Whilst away we got the happy news we have another grand son on the way, due is February 2017, daughter had her 20 week scan, which gave them the sex of their baby and confirmation all is well. With the cost associated with having a baby these days, it's sensible to know in advanced which sex it's going to be.
