All the flowers are done. I really enjoyed this piece. It will be mounted ready for framing at some point.
We decided to visit the craft fair at Hyde Hall today, I was extremely good & didn’t buy anything.
I managed some wildlife photography, a little mouse watched us eat our sandwiches, but skittered back into the bushes as soon as I picked up my phone.
I now have plenty of ideas for the front garden makeover, I think it’s going to take a while. As currently our front garden is a huge holly tree & box, that has attracted box caterpillars, so is starting to look rather unattractive. Oh & quite a few weeds.
And finally some more wild life photography. The sun shone & we had a lovely day out. I didn’t buy any plants either, but loads of ideas.
It’s been a while since I last shared photos of my garden.
I still have plants needing a home. My back garden is an L shape, I’m trying for a jungle look.
Over Christmas I’ve been busy working on my canvas module ( for the RSN), I’m trying to get the sky done. I still have plenty to do.
My slipper orchid decided to bloom ( after 2 years), it was worth the wait.
My mum made another gluten free cake today, with a recipe from Kate.
It was rather tasty, I got to lick Mum’s plate. It didn’t taste of that veggie stuff at all, just lime cake. So I give it a paws up.
Today we took Mini Beastie on his first outing, I won mini Beastie back in February from Helen at craw craft beasties , but hadn’t got around to taking him out.
Mini Beastie really enjoyed climbing in the alpine house.
I did have a go at sketching her
I had a lovely surprise when I came home from school on Friday, Claire from my stitching group had sent me an unbirthday present.
What a lovely idea.
This one is posing in the garden. Yes, some of my alpines are starting to think it’s spring here in Kent (UK) I also have a single wind battered daffodil & a couple of snow drops. My witch hazel is also in full bloom & I have roses that have not stopped flowering. This morning I noticed flowers just starting on my honeysuckle.
This lovely dark red yarn was brought by Mum in the works, it has a lovely rainbow filament running through it. I’m not sure if I should buy another Zabbez flower person pattern or make a second snow drop flower person. I have some lovely pink twinkly yarn that came in the pack with the red yarn, perhaps I can match the two up.
