What strange weather we've been having lately! Some days it's warm enough to think about suncream when I'm gardening, then we have days like yesterday when the heavens kept chucking it down with hailstones! I woke this morning to see frost on the grass and thought my beans had had it, but they still seem to be ok thankfully. Everything is covered with fleece and netting, so fingers crossed.
Here's a few flowers from the garden that cheered me up today.
In the veg plot the sweet peas have been planted with some twiggy sticks to give them a leg up to start with.
The potatoes are growing well and have been earthed up a few times.
Closer to the house I've been tidying up the pots and bought a couple of window planters that hubby put up for me :) I've been buying plants at the garden centre to fill them with, but they're sat indoors for now. The metal tub is full of mint, which I love to have by the back door in the summer for potatoes and salads. The butler sink was removed from our last house when it was the fashion to rip them out and put in little round ones! What were we thinking!
Lottie's getting fed up with the weather, whippets aren't designed for rain :( She hasn't had any luck catching rabbits either, so spending a lot of time under her blanket on the sofa.
Finally, I've added some more fabric rolls to my Etsy shop now that I've sold a few :) These ones are in cosy, warm colours, just right for a quilt for Autumn if you're looking for a project, or a gift for someone!
Here's hoping that summer is on the way soon.
