I had a fantastic, busy, creative weekend. The weather was glorious. I decided that I needed to really focus on the garden, so didn't do anything horsey. I still love you Zanny! I can send her some of these to keep her going until next weekend.
Kermit the (Prickly) Frog was watching over proceedings in the back yard. So were Mousie and Miss Dog. Today I planted some chili pepper and bell pepper seeds, and popped two red capsicum seedlings into the greenhouse.
Look- rosebuds in my garden. I did some serious weeding along the back in my mixed border. I sneak veges and herbs in among the flowering plants in the mixed border beds. And the odd deceased family pet too. I planted 10 wonderful oriental lily bulbs among the perennials and roses. Two went on Monty's grave, one for him and one for his sister Purrsia. I loved them both so much. Jasper has a plum tree, and Merlin, my big bunny, has the flowering cherry. That will be bursting into bloom shortly, with dainty blush pink tutus suspended from the branches.
I also got some treats from Stitch yesterday, but I'll save sharing those for another day. With the holidays coming up I'm bursting with creativity. I'm determined to get a couple more quilt projects finished. Johnny has indicated some interest in working on the raised beds in the back vegetable patch over the holidays. He loves a project too. Mr Mouse says he would love to spend lots of time exploring in the garden, and Miss Dog will happily poke her nose into whatever I'm doing. We all hope for lots of sunshine. XXX
