Its been a while I know since I posted an update. And what you see here is all to the hard work of my hubby. After I set too in Spring and over did things. So I have kept to lighter duties on the gardening front. If you hover your mouse pointer over each image it will tell you what is planted.

So while Hubby has been busy planting and keeping the weeds down, I completed my knitting projects and also finished a painting which seems ages ago now that now hangs on our granddaughters bedroom wall when she comes to stay.

Short sleeve top
This Short-sleeve top on the right was completed, and no sooner was it finished than I was itching to start another as I came across some more bargain wool
This short sleeve top I did to add as a short top to the cardigan I knitted.
The colours are the same, its just my camera and the lighting that makes them look different.
I then set about wanting to knit a summer light jumper which I was hoping to take on holiday, but I didn’t finish that in time, I completed it when we came back home
The colour of this is a turquoise but again the light and my camera do not do it justice.

Now I am working upon a thicker Aran Wool Sweater. I have already done the back and working on the front
The Home garden has been where I have been working, and getting my Begonias which have been stored over winter into pots. Lifting tulips out of the tubs and daffodils. While filling the hanging baskets and wall hangers with flowers for Summer..
Here is what the tubs of Tulips looked like back in April
Happy Gardening and Creating!
Until Next Time.
Calling all my wonderful friends who visit me here on my garden blog.. I have a new blog which I follow who is needing a bit of a boost in getting known..
May I introduce you to Steve, who does some wonderful paintings in lots of mediums, including amazing pastels..
I hope you go and say hello and take a look at his painting skills..
Many thanks, and a post of my own crafting will be coming this week end.
Has it been 10 days already? since my last post here.. Time sure is speeding up, but I have to say I really am enjoying Summer.. So as I so enjoyed my visit to the RHS Flower Show at Chatsworth earlier in June.. I still have lots of photos to share of beautiful gardens and blooms.. Where to start .. The above slide show, shows The Wedgwood Garden exhibition, it won a Gold Medal . Wedgwood was founded in 1759 by craftsman and potter Josiah Wedgwood. . This garden represented the classic English Feel, bring nature and the elements into peoples homes. Its design explores new materials, and re-imagines the traditional, with the attention to detail and craftsmanship at the forefront.
I think my favourite garden though had to be this one by Jackie Knight.. It was called Just Add Water. Water to me is essential, it relaxes and here Jackie who is stood on the stones to the right in boots, has created a space that is not only tranquil and calm, but is a lyrical to the ear as water trickles down in various stages.. Looking at this garden it looked like it had been here for years instead of a couple of weeks in the making.. I was disappointed Jackie only got a bronze medal for this excellent garden.
