I thought that with Fran going back on Monday and Knit and Natter on Tuesday the week would have flown by, even today seems never ending.
I have been weeding and digging over a strip of garden down the edge of the front garden, just where it joins my neighbours path. I have some Blackthorn to plant along it as a bit of a wind break and will be letting the wild strawberries romp about to their hearts content.
You can just see them top left behind the planter. They are smothered in flowers and tiny berries.
There are several flowers in the garden now.
Sunshine in Pansy form, dominating the Violas.
This little gem peeping from under a big plant, and a little grass. tut tut.
A happy little alpine.
Viola's swamping the primroses.
My first rose in the front garden, wonderful perfume.
Much as I love all these there is one flower that gets my pulse racing above all others,
Yes it is a potato flower and it tells me that I will soon be harvesting the rocket. I have mint at the ready.
The bluebell in the step is still there.
The Foxglove is standing as sentinel at the top of the steps.
Then there is my knitting.
The pattern, I would like to make the front as the waistcoat but have decided to follow the pattern. And make the waistcoat later.
This is the free pattern that I chose, I am now having second thoughts though. I am not sure that I like the shape or the neckline.
These were all there for the taking, Debs was going to copy them so we could all have one of each.
The jury is still out regarding the quilt blocks, I will look at it again later and really apply my mind.
But for now I am off to rummage round the fridge and see what I can cobble together for dinner.
I quite fancy Scampi, Chips and Salad, but I have no scampi and no deep fryer, so It may well be tuna and mayo with salad and no chips.
Have a good weekend.
