Knitting, gardening.....busy busy

Life is busy right now, 6 weeks to go to the wedding and I am finally on top of the garden.  Still things to do but happy that all the borders have had some much needed attention.  There are a few gaps that need plugging in the conifer bed.  The plants have either not over wintered well or just given up the ghost.

I think spring is my favourite time in the garden, so much promise and lots of colour.  Here are a few photos that I have taken today.

Here is my finished Holden Shawl, knitted in Sirdar Sunseeker Touch of Linen (discontinued).  I was worried that the yarn wouldn't do the pattern justice, but it has worked well and is lovely and drapey, will be the perfect addition to a summer dress on cool evenings.  One I will make again.

And because they are so lovely......

We are looking forward to some warm weather over the next two days, highs of 21C, great for this time of the year, definitely gardening weather, so I shall be busy


  1. Your garden is doing well! It's always such a good feeling to get it tidied up after the winter. Beautiful shawl! You are right - it will be perfect on cool summer evenings. Have a good week, Sue.

  2. Beautiful garden and photographs!

  3. Beautiful Shawl, beautiful Grandchildren, beautiful garden. I think I might have to visit in the springtime in the coming years.

  4. The shawl is very pretty. Well done, as usual! Your garden is looking cheerful with its blooms.
