It's been one of those whizzing about sort of Saturday's where we haven't stopped since 8am - I'll be glad to sit down this evening and my resolve to abstain from the red wine is weakening rapidly!!!
In a brief gap in the proceedings I did get these finished and they're now stacked on the shelves in my shop. I've thoroughly enjoyed reacquainting myself with my sewing machine and can feel the old craftiness creeping back :)
It's been a pretty miserable day but a wee exploration of the 'grounds' yielded a few treasures.
I love any daisy type flowers but cosmos have to be one of my favourites.
Hiding behind a soggy bamboo I found this little beauty - no scent sadly but very pretty.
Rachel asked me if my bottle brush tree was the same as the one's they have in Australia.
I think so Rachel but don't quote me on it!
It did look lovely after the rain this morning.
The poor thing is flowering like mad this year - probably overheard Moogsdad declaring his desire to get rid of it - and it's housing a blackbird family so who are we to cut it down?!!
A very quick chicken shed update - getting there - roof going on shortly and we may go browsing here for suitable ladies tomorrow. Not to bring any home just yet you understand....the shed must be worthy of our feathery lovelies first.
I'm now off again to fetch Minx from her friend's 'sparkly party' - she'll be glammed up with hair, nails, make-up - the lot! Oh, what it is to be 7.....
