Another Wednesday with Esther but the last for August I can not believe we are 3/4 of the way through the year!!!!!!
I woke to a beautiful sunny if chilly for us morning around 14C now 10am its around 25C.
7am this morning.
Now we are bathed in sunlight and a stunning blue sky 12midday.
My internet keeps dropping out very very frustrating when you are trying to write a blog!!!!!! Specially when you loose photo’s and the writing below the photos!!!!
Working on my wee triangles for TSG I still have 8 more to make!!!!
I sew my bias stems down first they make me laugh as they look like science fiction aliens to me LOL
I have my Gollywog quilt blocks out on my table again hopefully will be back sewing the last 6 blocks together soon. Love love these wee blocks they are so happy.
Playing again with my cone flowers finally have some new black to add, this will become a square not sure what will happen after I add the black??????
Love how the outside black pops my centre right out.
Clenaing out a draw two weeks ago and found these wee treasures amongst a lot of things I no longer need.
This was my mothers and she called it a fanny hoop????? You slide the kidney shape between your legs and under your bottom and then you don’t have to hold the hoop!!!!!! My hands are so sore now I’m going to try it!!!! Will let you know the out come!
I’ve been working the last 2 days in cleaning and restoring an area in the garden just wish I’d taken a before photo!!!!!
Behind my new false fence!
Monday I added this large piece of plywood, a mirror, and the wooden gate on the side boundary as my neighbour has been clearing so much from her garden we had lost our privacy around the swimming pool area as we also lost a HUGE tree from this area that left a big exposed area. It use to be so private you did not realise there was a neighbour so I’ve added this false wall to give us the illusion again of been lost in the rainforest!!!!
Yesterday while at the shop some one had dropped off 6 steel very very rusty frames that they were going in to the tip, I grabbed them and brought them home thinking to clean them up and paint them to use for climbing frames for plants, when I looked closely at them they were made with pull down hoops attached for pot plants so yesterday I screwed them to my false wall as is all rustic which softened the gate and huge piece of plywood. When you are in the swimming pool area the mirror reflects the pool area and gives the illusion there is another pool area!!!!!
We need to keep this ground area clear all the time as a lot of water rushes down here in the wet.
Now with false wall in the back ground.
At last the concrete path is safe to walk on as the mould has finally died.
New tomatoes’ and beans waiting to be planted out today, DH brought them home last night.
My herbs just love this planter box that DH gave me in June.
A few orchid flowers there should be clumps of around 20 or more but it’s been so wet!!!!!!
Even my red and yellow poinciana’s are struggling as its far far to wet for them.
Today I’m digging up a soak hole area as it’s become clogged with palm seeds, I have removed the stones now need to dig out all the seeds and small stones then replace stones for the next wet, this is one of the runoffs in front of the house.
Time to stop and link with Esther. Not sure how many times I tried to downloaded these photo’s then lost them with the internet dropping out before they were downloaded .
Thanks so much for dropping in, I do enjoy travelling to your homes in return to see what you are doing. Cheers Glenda
