I pruned off the old leaves so the new growth and flowers can be seen
primroses/primula...looking a bit ragged around the edges..like me :))
these ones are looking better
self sown violets/violas
and I've just found out these are called bergenia
and these are roses...which I don't want!
I mean...I like roses...I just don't want them in my garden! All those thorns, and they only look nice for a short period each year. So, I will prune them back, and I have a friend who is happy to take them (she can bring me a bunch of roses every now and then), and I think I will grow ivy along the fence. It's a shady area...gets a little sun in summer, but none in winter, so I am hoping ivy will do ok there.
Finished the back and half the front of my vest in the Mithral yarn...
it looks grey in the photo, but it is actually a mossy green
And a lovely surprise in the mail earlier this week! I won 1kg of real wool from K4C, one of the charity groups I knit for. The yarn is from Bendigo Woollen Mills and will be so nice to knit with. Not sure what I will knit yet...perhaps some children's garments...
Have been between books for awhile. Just can't seem to find one I can get into. So decided to read this one. It's Anne's latest (I have all her other non fiction ones and really like her writings), so will see how I go...
Still have family visiting, but they have gone off sight seeing for the day, so I'm catching up with a few home chores (and this post). It's been grey all morning, but the sun is shining weakly this afternoon, so I might make a start on those roses.
Then again...maybe I'll sit by the fire and knit :))
