I need it NOW.
What on earth? Oh yes, I cannot find my compost riddle.
I know exactly where I put it at the end of last years potting up and so on. It was in the storage bin.
It is not there now, I have checked both storage bins, I even braved looking in His Shed, Spiders and crawlies and webs, Oh My!
I have just ordered a replacement , which as we all know means that the next time I go up into the garden it will be right under my nose.
No, not literally, that would be a touch awkward and possibly painful.
I went to lidl this morning and bought 2 tiny Camelias and 2 slightly larger Peonies, I have plant supports and will be putting them into the ground later on. They were £6 for the 4 and I cherry picked through to find the sturdiest plants, give them a couple of years and they will have romped away.
I was thinking about putting some arches into one of the raised beds for my pole beans, the cost for anything half decent was around £40 !! so a friend was culling some saplings and I bagged 8 nice tall ones. I now have a rustic arch and no money parted from my purse.
I would have to grow a whole lot of beans to make up that amount of money.
I plan on putting either a squash or a courgette under the arch. It will suppress the weeds and shade the bean roots and supply some food.
No sewing today, I am playing catch up with my house and then will be in the garden.
It is very hot here today, Ben has retreated to a cool spot under the bureau and Herbie has found some shade in the yard, both are snoring gently.
I watched a couple of Darlene Michaud You Tube videos this morning, only shorties, she was making a scrappy quilt top. I like her style although I do press every seam as I go, finger pressing is not for me. Once my current sewing projects are done I will be pulling out ALL my scraps and emulating her. That will mean a crumb quilt as well as it would please me immensely to have empty, or almost, scrap bins.
I do have some new fabric to share but that can wait a while, once I am ready to use it I will share.
Now I need to make a move and have a dalliance with some polish and a duster.
Whilst I have been tapping away Herbie has come in and nudged Ben awake, they are both on the sofa and back to snoring.
My cutting board, these 4 patches may become a quilt back but it is highly likely that they will be another top. just to be perverse I am trimming them all to 9" square.
Having a lazy day here, enjoying the garden, war Hong the soft fluffy white clouds, perfect.ReplyDelete
I got a few more pots finished and hope to put in the few new perennials I bought, plus some annuals into the garden. I love Peonies but have no luck in growing them.ReplyDelete
Overcast and cool here but I intend to don a sweater and persevere with some outdoor work.ReplyDelete
We saw those plants at Lidl too but we resisted the temptation. They did look nice and healthy and good value for money.ReplyDelete
