The Long Weekend

Our four day weekend went by in a flash, as it always does when there's lots you want to do. We spent much of the time gardening and cleaning the swimming pool, and also catching up with friends for dinner one night.  

I finished some more ornament stitching, two of the 2013 Flora McSample ornaments.



Vegetable seedlings mostly all planted, perfect timing for the rainy afternoon we had on Monday.



Planted up several pots for the deck, impatients, lobelia, petunias, all reds and apricots for this summer.


This petunia is called Cha Ching


this little sunbells petunia is called Spicy.


Our snowball trees are now covered with very white snowballs (poms poms).


I'll be back soon with some Christmas ornaments finishes xx

Wonderful L*K ornaments. Looking forward to seeing your flowers bloom. It will be cold and dreary here in the UK so a bit of colour is always welcome.

What lovely stockings. They look a little old fashioned on the leaflet photo but your's look lovely stitched up. Funny how things look so much better than on the model photo!
