Lots of rain last night and a bit this morning … but it looks like the sun might shine later.
It shone and shone yesterday so I made up 5 window boxes and a few tubs … all the plants at a very reasonable price from my neighours … Smyths Flower Shop and Garden Centre.
I love lobelias … partly because they end up so lush and vibrant … and partly because my dear friend Lisa grew them years ago.
And geraniums … gotta love them.
So delightfully old fashioned … never pushy … they just get on with it.
I did up 3 window boxes for my dear neighbour and friend Therese … a nice mix of white lobelia and pink geraniums … and another box of a yellow flowers and blue/violet lobelia. She also has a box at her kitchen window with happy yellow flowers.
My boxes are mixed lobelias … and some geraniums … and a pot of snapdragons.
Mags asked me to do her window boxes about a month ago … so her pansies are well grown and very happy wee things … I love them.
Yesterday afternoon William and I hung a rail for all Mags clothes and made 2 shelves for her boots and shoes … it was great fun and quite easy (says she who is a woodwork newbie) … and Mags loves it.
As usual they were very very tasty … I allow myself one (or maybe 2) a day.
See the loose choc … the one that’s looks like it’s trying to escape … it didn’t get far.
And that glass? Full of water … just waiting for a miracle!
I went across to Noeleen in the flower shop to treat myself to a few flowers for the office … she kindly gave them to me as a gift … aren’t they lovely? Thanks Noeleen.
Coco is sitting in her chair as I work away … and now she’s asleep … tough life … I’m coming back as a much loved and cossetted dog.
Better go now and start some SKIL2 work.
Have a lovely day.
