Met DIL on Thursday - midway between our two homes. Had a rather splendid lunch at a pub before bringing Little Miss O home with me for a couple of days.
She is a pleasure to be with, but I didn't realise how out of condition I am (that's a lie - I do know really!)
The weather was beautiful and she spent all afternoon pond dipping with Grandad
As you can see, those coping stones have been there a number of years hand have gathered a variety if lichen, which apparently when wet attach to your sleeves !!
|can you see the colour of her elbows|
Wet up to the armpits and f.i.l.t.h.y but completely happy.
We will not have to feed the fish for several weeks.......
After returning (now cleaned up) child to her parents I did manage to get a bit of gardening done. Darling Daughter arrived on Sunday and
helped cleared out the greenhouse. (We are summer gardeners and batten down the hatches in November till Spring comes rolling around.
It's so exciting when you see little shoots rearing their heads
|sure sign things are warming up|
Well, they're at it again. There is masses of the stuff and every time I walk past the water positively boils with movement
So I am hoping that my collection of Hosta's will remain unscathed again this summer
Back to the sewing theme - isn't this picture just the best?
If that doesn't inspire I don't know what will
I have been sorting out the fabrics that will become my new summer bed quilt. Fabric choices done but still got to toss that coin to decide on the design.....
A busy couple of days later this week . On Friday I am attending a class - 1950’s Flowers with Gillian Travis - at my LQS. Completely out of my comfort zone and the first class I will have attended for years. And to complete the weekend I am off to Lamport Gardening Academy with a friend on Saturday. We are doing a course on Wildlife Gardening. I know now that we will have such a laugh - I wonder if they know what they are in for!
