Remember when I planted the tuba’s of the Dahlia’s and they looked like this .
Well, now look at them, I went to pick some for the weekend before the weather turned more stormy today and ended up having to tie them up as they were being so blown about in the winds.. Click on the photo to enlarge the photo’s
So as per usual, every picture tells a story . Here are the Dahlia’s and see how they have thrived.
These were all picked today I gave some to two neighbours and to another allotmenteer, along with some courgettes .. I also took some Dahlias and sweetpeas to my daughter along with some veggie goodies.
In between being in the garden and just relaxing and enjoying the Sun.. I have been busy knitting.. This is about the most simplest pattern I have ever knitted, never have I done a back and fronts in rectangles …. I got the pattern out of a book, from a bookstore on offer, with many other knitting projects inside. The book doesn’t use the normal pattern row by row instructions which I am used to on patterns and I found it was published in the USA. Its not until you start reading the pattern that you find the differences within the references of shortened terms in Knitting jargon. Thankfully it had a conversion chart at the back of the book.
While the original had a pattern was a ‘Slip stitch Mesh’ in the pieces, as I was watching Tennis while knitting I made a few errors as it requires a 6 row of repeated different stitches, so thought I do not need complicated right now.. So I undid it and started again, and instead of creating the pattern, I decided to do plain knit.. Its not often I only do a plain pattern . As you may have seen from other knitting projects. more found on my other blog at the link provided
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and next time will be all about the Bees on my Hydrangeas and showing you the flowers on my Olive Bush at home. And I will be showing you how the sweetcorn is growing and the Butternut Squash.
