Tomorrow morning we are off to Crete for 10 days.
A while ago I made this crochet beach bag with that holiday in mind.
Crochet in Lilly Sugar and Cream yarn (held double).
It was quite hard on the hands but worked up really quickly.
I'm quite happy with how it turned out, i might change the tassles at some point, but for now they will do. I'll let you know if it survived when i get back ;-)
As i type this it is pouring with rain, the garden could do with it though.
I am leaving Stevie-Leigh in charge of the watering while we are away, i just hope that all my hard work will not have been for nothing, you know what these youngsters are like!!
I'll leave you with some photos of what i have planted up and the garden.
Love how these geranium buds look
A lovely orange Dahlia ready to open
So stunning when they do
Hostas coming into flower
Mark finally replace the broken decking boards in the middle of the garden
A couple of bargains from Home Bargains, 99p each for these large Begonias!
The promise of hydrangeas
A very blurry picture of my Bizzie Lizzie tower
A planter that Mark made me out of the left overs from the path
Our huge broccoli shaped oak tree :-)
And Oliver's 'marto' plant.
He looks every time he comes to see if there are an on to pick :-)
We have flowers, so hopefully martoes will follow :-)
See you in about 2 weeks
