I can’t make my mind up what I should do, I’m being drawn in all directions, the sun shines and the garden beckons, I have some new fabric and I want to sew, I have new books I want to read and now this newly acquired basket of wool, makes me want to sit in front of the fire and either crochet or knit.
Our weather was glorious over the weekend, we enjoyed wall to wall sunshine and both days were spent in the garden, that is until about 4pm when the sun gets lower in the sky and sinks behind our hedge, then temperatures suddenly plummet.
John has painted my lovely summer house and the attached pergola with a preservative, I was eager to get that job done so I can go ahead an plant a couple of new climbers up there.
My friend and I had a great day out last week visiting a wonderful garden centre situated on the English/Welsh border. I bought lots of things I can’t easily get locally, a blueberry bush, dahlia & begonia tubers, canna rhizomes, many packets of seeds, seed potatoes and onion sets. Plus... yes, at last I’ve got one, a rusty garden ornament of a bird. I was so thrilled to find it. I have admired these ornaments in a number of my German friend’s blogs. I’ll have to take a picture and show you. Oh! and I simply couldn’t resist the pretty primulas and the rose decorated pot either, such a vision of spring.
Thought you may like to see the picture I took of the clipped box bush in the shape of a horse and jockey. Quite magnificent.
If you click on the pictures they will enlarge.
Reflection Through The Seasons
I live in a small Welsh village which is situated in the southern tip of the Snowdonia National Park. Its an area of true outstanding natural beauty. We have the Cambrian mountains to the east of us and the coast of Cardigan Bay out to the west. My husband and I moved to Wales from The Cotswolds in England 19 years ago. We bought the old village Police Station, which we have worked tirelessly renovating ever since. You could say its a real labour of love. I have retired after working many years in the travel business, this now leaves me free to pursue the many things in life that I enjoy.
