Hi!

Im back, just.I have been super busy as usual. I have been doing a little crafting mainly in the evenings when we are all  watching the TV.A while ago I showed you a green blanket I have had like forever, well I told you I had plans to do an edging all around well.... here it is all finished!! I completed it weeks ago, really enjoyed working on it , giving it a new lease  of life.
I have also wanted to get into my garden and start to get my veg patch ready ready for  the new planting year, but here in England we have had some bad weather.We have had the highest record of rainfall recorded, not quite gardening weather at all.
My hubby had brought me the most loveliest mini greenhouse ever, so been eagar to get it used and get lots of cuttings and seeds growing.


 So now the extreme rainfall is done my gardening is thwarted by fog.Not just any fog the kind I have never seen  before. First i thought it was normal fog.So your thinking why would fog stop you from gardening? This one was caused by  sand from Sahara desert and pollution from Europe apparantly on the news it warned people with breathing problems not to go out im it.Im mild Asthmatic and the day before was out and about in this fog not knowing the warning issued.Later that day my throat was scratchy, and in the night and all the next day I sneezed continuously till my ribs were sore.I became tight chested and needed my inhaler.

Everything weather wise is back to normal now has promised by the weather forcast they said a wind would blow it away by Friday, and it did too.Lovely blue skies now.Gardening commence at last x

  1. It is so nice when you get a project done isn't it; especially when you have renewed something for continued use. I think you did a great job. I like your garden and your mini-greenhouse. I wish I had a greenhouse too. Like your area, we have been experiencing a long period of rainfall. The sun will come out but doesn't hang around too long. My garden will be late gain this year.Happy week ahead.

  4. Hi Joy! :) I really like how the edging turned out on your blanket. Very pretty! ... How fun to start seeds in your own greenhouse. You lucky girl, you! That wire birdie sitting on the table is adorable! ... I'm happy to hear all your rain and nasty fog has ended, and I certainly hope that you're feeling much better. Have fun starting your plants and playing in the yard....Joy, I had no idea that you lived in England til now! ♥ Paulette
