So I have had a gentle weekend. Yesterday I went to a crochet group. What can be better than spending a few hours, with other like minded people, crocheting, drinking tea and eating cake? It felt quite naughty! :)
I then did a little shopping, and popped in to see my mum. No rush, just doing stuff - slowly, enjoying the moment.
And today, I have cooked, and caught up with the ironing. I'm not a great fan of ironing more of a "shake it, and hang it up and hope no one notices any creases" sort of girl. Then I popped my coat on - it's a bright, cold and blustery day here, and I have spent a couple of hours in the garden. Just tidying a few bits, sweeping the paths, and running the hoe over the flower beds to try and break up the soil and compost, before the next lot of rain! Patience isn't one of my virtues, and I think I'm ready for Spring! I've had enough of Winter now! I know it's not been too cold, but I liked the feeling of the sun today.
Anyway, I'm back indoors now, and thought I'd share some photos of the garden. Selective shots you understand, but there are definite signs that Spring isn't too far away. My garden is starting to wake up.
The hellebores are starting to flower
Primula and primroses
New buds on the rose bushes
This sweet campanula hasn't really stopped flowering and makes me smile every time I walk by it by the front door.
The daffodils are growing daily.
Snowdrops - it won't be long before they flower.
Sedums starting to grow.
Grasses in the wind.
There's still a few rosehips
Did I ever show you the wood store Matt made for me?
It was part of his GCSE DT project. Several people asked to buy it when it was displayed at school, but I wanted it for me!
And now, I'm off to crochet. Goodness, weekends feel quite relaxing, with time to do what I want when there's no sport!
Wishing everyone a happy week, and I hope the rain and wind isn't as bad as the last forecast I saw!
