|Pretty aren't they|
My friend had a birthday on Saturday, and as she sews a bit, I thought I would give her one of these little cups so I sat and played and this is how it turned out.
|Cute don't you think!|
Saturday was another very foggy start, but ended up a sunny day, so the garden got a bit of a tidy, and we took out a row of Lavender bushes that had been looking a little past their best, and goodness how its opened up the garden! I am sure I will miss the fragrance, but the garden does look much cleaner and fresher now. Maybe at a later date we will replant one or two more who knows!
The clocks were put forward an hour this weekend, so we are now in 'British Summer Time', and this was what Sunday morning brought us.
|The mist is lifting, and the sun is already shining|
When we wake to the scene above it makes you want to get up and make the most of the day, and that is exactly what happened. We know that we will be on a hose pipe ban from the end of this month, so my first thoughts were to get the patio in the garden cleaned and jet washed (obviously using the hose before the deadline). Mr D decided we needed another water butt to collect rain water from the shed so we set about our respective jobs. Mine was a piece of cake, but Mr D's did not go so well. He had bought some small guttering for the shed, but it would not work with the water butt, so a quick trip to the D.I.Y. store to change the bits he had already purchased. The water butt is still not quite there, but we are well on the way to being a bit more water efficient.
