Look at my courgette flowers now! Isn't it beautiful! I am so thrilled all my hard work a few weeks ago seems to be paying off. I think I need to do a bit of swotting up though to see if I should be doing anything with them. I left my some tomatoes to their own devices the first time I tried to grow them...well....the area resembled a jungle in the end! I can't say I am an expert with them now, but haven't managed a repeat of that first attempt!
My friend brought me in a bunch of flowers at the weekend, for looking after her foster child.
Because of all the trauma that was going on I didn't have a chance to really appreciate them.
Today I suddenly spotted the roses had opened out...isn't it beautiful. Teen One and I are wondering what colour the lilies in the background will be.
On the subject of pretty flowers....what do you think of this adorable little one? Isn't she sweet...and what about all that hair!! She is the granddaughter of a friend who came for lunch today. Teen One was in her element giving her cuddles.
The weather was a little unsettled this morning, but this afternoon has been quite pleasant. Perfect washing drying weather...warm with a breeze.
Teen One took our remaining gerbil out into the garden. We feel he is in need of some TLC at the moment and having more time spent with him. The play pen was half in the shade and half in the sun...he preferred to take in the suns rays...can you see him there?
I have finally finished the rainbow ripple blanket I am making for Teen One (inspired by Attic 24)well most of it anyway. All that is needed is the sewing in of those ends and a few rows of single crochet for the edging.
I don't have any plans for my next project yet...unusually....so am open to some inspiration!
Finally, we are in need of some DIY advice! On Saturday Hubby made a new shelf for me, from a lovely piece of oak. Unfortunately, one side is curling/warping slightly. You can see in the picture where the right side is pulling away from the glue.
He has done some googling as to how to rectify this...from using a steam iron to leaving it alone....anyone got any advice?
