Weekending

I was chatting to my grandmother on Saturday (Hi Gran 😁) and as we do, we chatted about many things, but one of the things we spoke about was the garden. She is a very talented and avid gardener. She used to own her own plant nursery in times gone by and was president of the Fuchsia Society in South Africa …

Dandelion Yarn

I love how this time of year just keeps throwing up seasonal treasures week after week. Often these treasures are fleeting like the bluebells and others last a little longer like the cow parsley that is flooding the verges at the moment. About two weeks ago the fields, lawns, verges and country lanes were awash with yellow dandelions. I just love …

In the Making

This week it’s been rather wet and rainy and I have loved it. We’ve had such a dry spell of late that this rain is much appreciated – at least it is by me. I was in the post office posting a yarn order yesterday and someone was moaning about the weather and the rain we’ve had this week. I actually …
