|The oregano has far more growth than expected.
Time to get the old dead stuff out of there, I suppose.
|The chives are thriving too.
As is that tiny weed in the bottom left of the photo.
My baby rosemary looks less than pleased with the winter rigours it has undergone. The thyme - well - the thyme just looks dead. I will give it the benefit of the doubt for another week or two but I have a feeling it just needs removing and replacing. Some other things never die though!
|The nettles are looking healthier than ever under the trampoline!
Days like today demand that laundry be done and placed outside. And other tasks to be sped through so that you can take some hand sewing outside and bask in the pure joy of it all.
I grabbed my tin full of perle cottons, a disappearing pen, my scissors and out I went.
Is anyone surprised that I keep my perle cottons in a tin that used to contain chocolates?
I am working on a little project for the sewing retreat. A small swap where we make name tags for each other. Obviously I cannot show you the finished product until after my partner receives it but I can show you the basic form I was working on today with my colourful threads.
I am hoping I have chosen colours my partner likes and it will look a lot different (I hope) by the time I am finished with it.
What other reasons do I have to be happy today? Well, some of you may be aware that I have been on my own during the week for the past two years while himself worked away. But as of today we are a full time family seven days a week. No more waving good bye on a Sunday evening. Such a good feeling but, I must state, the fight for control of the telly remote has commenced!
