Hello everyone, how are you? Today was much warmer, a lovely 13C which meant it was the perfect day for some gardening. With overcast skies, no wind and just a misty rain at times, I knew that rugged up in warm clothing and with gum boots (wellies) on my feet, those weeds were going to be history.
There is nothing quite as rewarding as seeing a garden bed minus weeds and it was choked. And gardening is always the perfect time to have a good ponder on life, mull things over, release some stress and enjoy the sounds of nature. The kookaburras were exceptionally noisy today.
Some plants were pruned, something that should have been done in autumn but I was off overseas enjoying the delights of Europe instead. There is another long section of this border along the driveway yet to weed and I haven't even touched the garden beds in the back yard.
A bright blue wheelbarrow (very muddy) is just the thing to cheer up a dull day.
After working for a couple of hours, my back and knees were protesting so it was time to go inside for some lunch and a sit down. How lovely it was to cosy up on the sofa with my wool and hook, have a rummage through some grannies already made and contemplate how many more I will need to make for the blanket in my mind to become a reality. I've no plan whatsoever really, just merrily hooking away at large and small grannies in the hope one day I'll have enough. I've joined some together to get a sense of what it might look like....hmmm, lots of green and pink in there.
I had Stripey keeping me company and later he kept my legs toasty warm.
He is such a beautiful boy.
So I've passed a rather wonderful day doing things I love like gardening and crocheting. Now it's time to think about dinner which will be baked fish with dill, home made baked chips and salad. There might just be a self saucing pudding tonight too with lashings of cream. Just the thing for a cold winter's evening.
Have the most wonderful weekend everyone. I look forward to finding out what you all get up to on your blogs. Thanks for taking the time to stop by.
