Totally beautiful, with so many more buds to open.
I purchases these from B&Q reduced section, 50p each, 3 plants, nothing wrong with them, just no flowers, when I got to the till, they were having a 15% off day, so I paid £1.26. I can't separate the 2 pots, so I planted them, the extra rim looks good.
Tiny seeds have been appearing on my desk, for 2 days I have brushed them into the bin, but where are they coming from? The only plant nearby is my pineapple, do they throw out seeds, I don't know, I did look on goggle, which said they do make seeds. So for an adventure, I got out a small pot with compost and sprinkled them on to see if anything grows, they look too small for pineapple seeds, so what am I trying to grow.
I purchased a yarn advent calender for myself and wanted to ensure hubby was not left out, we normally do not bother with them. I did not see any ready made ones he would love, so I looked at purchasing an empty one, but they are expensive. I purchase small white bags, marked the numbers and used a Christmas sticker to close them, I already had the big bag, really pleased with this, full of treats he loves.
I noticed back in October one of my Orchids had a new stem growing, I have watched it reach about 7", so I thought I would ease it upright and attach to a stick for the blooms to be higher, and I have snapped it off, I am so angry with myself. I have one Orchid in full bloom, it has flowered for weeks, and my hope was this new blooms would be ready just as these faded, I do love to have flowers in my sitting room, Oh well.
I spent Thursday in Southampton with youngest daughter, she had the last of her Christmas shopping to do, I was not happy for her to go alone, she has less than 3 weeks to her due date, so we had a girly day. Daughter got all she needed and I got a couple of treats and a small gift for hubby's stocking. We were both tired once we got home, we had a long lunch together and loads of fun, plus it was dry all day.
When I got home I found hubby had cleaned our cooker, every year he gives it a good clean, so it looks like new (not bad as it's 15 years old), it's never too dirty, but it's nice to see it so shiny.
I have been busy crafting, and hope the ripple blanket will be done by the end of the weekend. I have been looking online at how you make a star shaped blanket, it's looks simple enough, I have yarn, but I won't start until I have finished the pair of socks required for a gift.
Will slept over last night, we decided mum and dad should have a last lazy morning together, soon they will be waking up at all times through the night, he is happily playing with hubby, chatting about his baby brother, things they will do, it's lovely to listen to him.
Later he will be back home with mummy and daddy and we are going to friends for supper, a takeaway plus a glass of wine and loads of chatter, the bonus they live just across the road, no long journey home. It's an early start with Will 6.30am, so might need a rest this afternoon.
