Yep me again - well I am a creature of habit - its Monday so it must be a blogging night!
Thanks for all the comments on the crochet - yes it is addictive - I am just glad I've cracked it - means I'll be able to take it to Dorset with me next month and probably to Latitude too!Am hoping to have a completed blanket by winter time.
Today has been so hot here even with a sea breeze, all the windows open and the ceiling fans in the kitchen working overtime. I hated those fans when we moved in but every summer they come into their own and make the kitchen the best place to be on a hot day.
Everyone knows about the dwindling bee population in this county - well I think I've found where lots are living - my Hebes in the front garden;
They move so fast, it took me ages to get a photo!
Despite a severe trimming in the autumn, both Hebes are massive again.
Now I'm not much of a garden but I do like plants that attract wildlife. The lavender hedge we planted last summer has taken off and will soon be in full flower;
I must find something to put into that chimney pot.
When it was my Mum's birthday a few weeks ago I bought her several lavender plants for her garden - I couldn't resist adding an extra for me - I knew there was a perfect empty spot.
So next time you're wondering where all the bees are - don't worry, lots of them are in my garden. I must find an identification book - apart from big fat bumble, normal bumble and honey I couldn't tell you what types there were!!
Right I ought to go for a bloggy wander and then try and do some of the jobs it was just to hot today to attempt - most importantly putting sheets onto our bed - failing that it will be the camping mattresses in the garden for us tonight - you just know that would make it rain!
Another beeing kind thing - I've volunteered to have my little nieces and nephew here on Thursday when their school is closed due to strikes - by Thursday evening I might regret that!
See you soon.
