After many months days of over use be it patchworking, gardening, cycling to the allotment and
my hands have gone on strike!
Yet still they won't leave that hook alone.
So I'm going cold turkey on the crochet front....
one whole day and counting...
I hope its just a rep strain.
here's more from my side kick akathe garden.
I have recently visited an ngsgarden in my area, which was small yet beautiful.
My ultimate goal would be to get accepted and open my garden for charity.
I know I have a long way to go, as you can see from the exposed areas,
hopefully in a year or so, when the shrubs and climbers have matured I will give it a go.
Here is my new arch which was last years birthday present,
looking through to the arbour which was the previous years present.
I do have a clematis climbing up the left hand side of the arch,
hopefully there will be lots of lovely white bells in a month or so..
Lots of new blooms this week,
I can hardly keep up with the staking and tying in.
pictured above this white sweet william is really sweet!!
lovely frothy nigella
super cute wool carder bee
an uncommon solitary bee which
I haven't noticed before so I had to look it up,
after panicking that I had killer bees in the garden!
And last but not least the lovely peony
(apparently a cutting form my great grandmothers garden)
They are breath-takingly beautiful in every way.
With its flower shop fragrance and silky soft petals,
it's almost up there with roses, if only it repeat flowered! loverly just like the opening titles of my fair lady....in my garden!!
