At first sight, the main border in the back garden is green, green and more green
But look closer, and there are flowers .......all of them pink!
The back border is also very green - but as it the green of hostas I love it! However as the summer goes on, there will be yellow from the loosestrife, purple from the lavender and orange from the montbretia
The shady border in the corner is filling out nicely, with more hostas (I love them!), ferns, bamboo and the plants which I have always called castor oil, but which I believe are actually fatsia japonica
These starlings were having a good poke about the grass this morning
I finished the last Christmas stitchery last night. I think this is my favourite one, and I may stitch another one to make into a small wallhanging
I spent the day in the studio, first finishing the applique on Lilly Pilly, then making something which I can't tell you about yet, as it is a present for someone who reads the blog! As before I have taken a photo of the wrong side, so that you can see the stitching ...... even on the wrong side the little birds look cute!
I can't do any more until I get more fabric from Anne, so we're off to Northumberland in the morning. Malcolm will drop me off at the shop, then he'll go out for lunch with Jennifer. I'm looking forward to spending the day with Anne and the group of ladies who meet in the shop every Wednesday.
To finish ....... you might think that Malcolm needs some lessons in photography - but he wasn't trying to take a photo of me, but was playing with my latest gadget, a remote control for the camera. I got it to make it easier to take photos when the camera is on the tripod
