..... on Easter Sunday:
When I put this collage together I couldn't believe just how many plants were in flower, and how much earlier than in the past couple of years. And if you look at the hosta leaves in the lower central part of the collage, you'll see that they are whole - not one eaten leaf amongst them. Haven't seen that in a good long while.
Now, I feel as though I'm on a bit of a roll with the garden; some borders have been totally tidied, others are in the process of being revamped and renovated. Of course this brings the pleasure of plant shopping and searching out those plants I really want to have in the garden rather than those that are just available locally. So, a trip to Edrom nursery is being planned. I've been once before - a long time ago - and I'm very much looking forward to seeing it again. I think I'll combine it with a visit to St Abbs which is so very pretty.
The sewing room has not seen much action lately (see above for why) but I am up to date with all orders - including a bag for the lovely Rachel - and all the orders from the new Big Cartel shop. Thank you to everyone who has bought from the new shop front; the orders are in the post and I'm hoping they'll be delivered this week. Though with all these (lovely) Bank Holidays it's a case of crossing fingers in hope. It really wasn't a certainty about the new shop - thank you for making it such an instant success.
Off to enjoy a little more gardening - though definitely not more digging - in the sunshine, followed by tea and cake for mid-morning snack.
ps Take a look here for some great downloads for paper goods. I got some wonderful Easter printables for a great price and made the cupcakes etc look just the thing! I'll take some photo's and show them later. x
