It seems that I am busier than ever before which makes any spare time very precious. So as the sun has chosen to shine for a brief couple of days (Seriously…this could be the sum total of the British summer time!!!) I have chosen to spend my time outdoors and make the most of it.
The warmth of the sunshine has caused an explosion of foliage and weeds! So I cleared a patch of rogue nettles in the growing garden and rediscovered a little hosta…
Mr. R dug up the blackberry and raspberry bushes which quite frankly were looking very ugly. I have pondered their removal for some time, but sometimes you just have to cut your losses. Their fruit bearing has been lousy and that’s a polite way of putting it!
Talking of losses, we lost our last chicken this week…sad news! We have decided not to replace them, so the chicken run has been dismantled and we are deciding what to do with this space.
I also made a return to bluebell wood, and was met with this utter spectacle…
And I just had to stop the car to photograph the present crowning glory of the British countryside…
All this colour led me to the garden centre
in pursuit of summer annuals for my kitchen window box
a sweet pea tipee
and a little bit of something yummy…
lettuce and spring onions
so not much crochet time, but I did get half an hour in this morning
Have a great week.
