Wow, a busy weekend both socially and in attacking my to do list. I spent some great catch up time with friends and really enjoyed it. Yesterday I spent really attacking my garde, my lovely mum came and helped for a while until we were rained off but once it had cleared I started the attack again. It is so nearly there now, after laying 14 bags of chips and 15 slabs to tidy up around the grass, I can almost begin to enjoy it.
I am looking forward to sitting drawing or painting and watching the fruits of my labours. I have planted some things that do not need much attention but I have also planted a blueberry bush, strawberries and apple and pear trees so I hope I can really enjoy the fruits of my labour. There is also my rhubarb which is always good.
I intend to add herbs and some more fruit and vegetables when I can but I now have to wait for the time to be right. I am also going to add more pots to the garden too as finances allow but for the time being I can cross another thing off my list and feel good about it.
Not much went on artwise at the weekend but I did buy some lovely prints from
I love buying gifts that are from artists or craft people and these pictures are gorgeous. The artist is also a lovely person. I like to know who has made the things I have in my home or I give to friends, I think the person is as important as what they produce and if I don’t like the person I can’t enjoy what they produce. In this case there is no problem at all. Check out these lovely prints and see for yourself. I am not going to show you what I have bought my friends as I know they read this and I don’t want to spoil the surprise, here is my treat to myself though – love this!
