With an early winter setting in, I'm very glad I made another neck warmer. The colour is a deep chocolate brown and not at all the colour the photo portrays.
Don't you think the back gate post makes a stunning model? :)
A couple of weeks ago I lifted the strawberries out of the ground and planted them in an old aluminium cauldron. Mum use to make jam in the cauldron but as we don't use aluminium for cooking anymore, she very kindly donated it to me. Hubby drilled some holes in the bottom for drainage and put it on bricks so the strawberries will be off the ground.
The garden is very wet underfoot with all the rain we have had this past week. Yesterday and last night we had thunderstorms and hail with more rain this morning. My roses are looking very bedraggled and will be sitting as is until they get a prune in late July, early August.
There aren't too many flowers out in the garden now. However when I was raking leaves in the front yard last week, I noticed the snowdrop bulb leaves already coming up. They shouldn't be doing that yet, so I have no idea what is going on with the weather.
Have a lovely week everyone.
