Another glorious sunshiney morning but with quite a strong wind again.
We have been out to do our bit at the polling station voting in the local elections. Another month and we'll be doing it all over again.
When we got back the sun was making the garden look particularly pretty so I thought I would show you some of my favourite bits and some of the new things that have been added since the last time I showed garden pics.......
This little corner makes my heart sing. For so long nothing would grow properly there but DD has improved the soil and with the added pots it now looks so pretty.
Granny's Inn.....no vacancies I'm afraid. The bluetits are in residence and have laid eggs.
A beatiful new red thistle. I have had blue ones before but have never seen a red one. I can't wait for this to fill out. It will look stunning.
Onto the front garden and the Scilla is beginning to flower.
I think the plant in the pot is an Allium. The crate is filled with DD's favourite Sedums in various forms.
More Sedums I think and some Thyme in a new planter. I'm not sure what else is in here as I forgot to ask.
I am so thrilled with what DD is doing with the garden. It's looking better than it ever has since we came here just over twenty years ago.
Today I just have a little more fabric to sort out and some Sweet and Sticky Chicken Meatballs to cook for tea and then I am going to be sewing. I will finish Ruby's skirt and then cut out and make a start on Andy's PJ's.....all of which should have been done yesterday but DD had a bit of a senior moment and turned the car for home....forgetting that she was supposed to be going to the gym and then couldn't be bothered to go out again....lol.
Hopefully she will remember today.
Also today I will be going against my own rule of never ironing tea towels and ironing a pile of them just for the simple joy of the smell after they have been line dried.
Have a wonderful day.
