Monday was a glorious day, Tuesday it rained and rained and rained some more. Today we woke to beautiful blue skies. Typical British summer, really!
I took the camera for a walk down to the veg patch early this morning (all photos can be clicked on for a closer look should you desire it!):
Everything is doing pretty well - they like the mix of sun and rain, I suppose! Loads of courgettes and runner beans already picked and eaten. The bit nearer the back has broccoli, peas, beetroot and onions and elsewhere there are pots with carrots, parsnips, peppers, chillies, blueberries and some gro-bags with loads of tomatoes. There's also a blackberry bush tucked at the back of the side border. Hubby bought me a "real proper" Sussex trug for our anniversary - something I've hankered after for years. I feel sooooo posh going down to pick stuff with that rather than an old tin lid or plastic box! hehehe
Let's play Spot the courgettes!
Much of the garden was still in the shade of the house when I was out there, but these lovely crocosmia were in sunshine. Just before we sold mum's house after she died, I dug some up and put them in a pot, so they've come with us to this house too and get moved around the garden to wherever there's a gap that needs cheering up.
I've done loads of crafting over the last few weeks, but either haven't had the time, or haven't been able to blog it yet - I'm saying this in case you thought I was being a lazy crafter as well as a bad blogger...haha
It also somewhat excuses the state of my desk......
Half-projects a-plenty on there today along with scraps of leftover stuff, and stuff that might be made into things - if only I could get my head around C-Word crafting! aaaagggghhhhhh
The photo is all part of Julia's WOYWW campaign, which just in case you've still not heard about, the whys and wherefores can be found by clicking HERE - and just in case you didn't know this either - Julia is this month's guest designer over on the Daring Cardmakers woowoo! Which reminds me - that's what I'm supposed to be working on today - so I need to make a card-sized gap on that desk.
Thanks for visiting, please leave a message before you rush off to the next desk!
