Catching up

Hello,  Just a quick post to say I'm still here.
The ankle op' went well and is healing up nicely now.  It already feels more flexible without all that metal and it's always good to have an excuse to put your feet up and take it easy!
Hubby's had the week off and there's been lots of garden tidying and general family stuff, so not much time for blogging or crafting at the moment.

Loving my dahlias this year.  I ordered loads of cuttings back in the spring and had forgotten the varieties, so it's quite exciting when they start to flower.  They are such brilliant value for money, the more you cut them, the more they flower.

Pyracantha  berries.  The birds love them, but the bush is covered in lethally sharp thorns.

The apple tree is groaning under the weight this year.  Shame the apples aren't all that nice and often maggoty :(

And another pelargonium pic!


  1. Glad to hear that the op went well and that you're recovering nicely. Those dahlias are beauties, it's so exciting waiting for something to flower when you're not sure of the variety. There's so many berries around already this year, apparently the sign of a bad winter to come.

  2. So glad your operation was successful. Your garden looks beautiful. Will you be able to make some apple jelly with the apples that are less then perfect?

  3. Delighted you're through your operation, hope you'll be back to some normality soon. Am so in love with your beautiful garden, the dahlias are lovely, a real pick me up. Enjoy your rest
    Lots of love Karen Xxxx
