Hello, I hope you are all ok, and doing the things you love...
Well June, you didn't start Flaming at all, cold, wet, windy...more like winter than Summer! Thick socks, warm jumpers, and woolly blankets were needed at the beginning of the week.
You've redeemed yourself somewhat today though, so I'm almost at that forgiving stage. Today has been Flaming, sunshine and lovely warm temperatures. It's been a good day, I've spent time with a good friend, sat in the sunshine, picked up some amazing bargains at the Antique Centre. (I must blog about it soon, it has lots of quirky stuff at brilliant prices, friendly staff, I could...whoops, do, spend hours in there!).
This evening, I've pottered in the garden. That's a lovely word isn't it. To potter. To loose time in your garden. To wander, admire, listen, to smell...oh the dwarf lilac is amazing! Yes, I do like to potter.
Garden plans are moving on, I can't wait to show you what we've got planned. I'm so excited...we are at the Very Messy Stage at the moment. Moving plants around, giving some away, some sadly will end up in the lasagne beds! I'm keeping the faith though, by the end of June things will look a whole lot nicer.
We've not got a headstone or plaque for Mum. She didn't really like anything like that. My garden really will be in her memory...a place where I can sit and reflect. Today I found some birthday cards she had sent me, some with Dads name on, and others after he died. I'm glad I kept them. She would have been so excited by my garden plans. I'm so glad she passed the gardening gene on to me.
I've a lovely day planned for tomorrow too, out with a friend to the wonderful Felley Priory. I will take lots of photos to show you. And that's not all folks, I'm off to Hope and Elvis at the weekend for my very first workshop. I'm a bit nervous to be honest, it's going to involve a bit of stitching! Again I will take photos and share next week.
I feel very spoilt. It's lovely! ;)
Hope you all have a great weekend...let's hope the sun continues to shine!
