Summer 2015 - 31st August

Day 39

The inevitable has happened and the last day is here. Not going away this summer has made the holiday seem lovely and long. In addition my garden has a lot of attention and I have also been able to sit in the garden and enjoy the blooms. I have had lovely days out with friends and family. I have also finished two crafty projects: Bollywood Top and Wizadora. 

Here is one last look around my garden this summer, it can be compared with Day One.

The Patio

This is largely still a mess due to our building work - however there are some pretty areas.
This green shelving unit will be going into my new craft room soon - but I have enjoyed it here this summer. 

The Cool Bed

This area is where the buddleia was and still needs some attention but in it now are: a hebe, hellebores (from my friend), a hydrangea, heather, penstemons and an aster.

My woodland glade!

The shed with the climbers climbing. 

End of the cool bed. 

Mero Star bursting forth.

Middle of the cool bed.

Not many blooms left now.

This bit still looks flowery. 

The Shady Bed

The shady bed is probably my favourite bit right now. 

The Shady Bed extension - still blooming well. 

The Decking

Very pleased with this - I think the plants have added a superb touch.

I would like to thank for Janet at Yellow Pink and Sparkly for following me right through my marathon of blog posts this summer. 

Hopefully I'll be able to post again before half term and I have enjoyed keeping this diary throughout the summer holiday.

Keep crafting and gardening everyone:) x

Summer 2015 - 30th August

Day 38

Well it seems I miscalculated back in July and day 38 is not the last day - I have day 39 too - although it's a Bank Holiday so may be that's why I didn't count it. 

Crafty News today............

I finished the lovely Wizadora and it fits perfectly. (I will write up my notes soon). 

I hardly used up any yarn - only the purple went into the second ball, as you would expect with all that ribbing.

So what will I do with the leftovers - well I have a plan for a crocheted bag with a denim lining, but first I shall be sticking with Marie Wallin designs and embarking upon my version of Eos.

Summer 2015 - 29th August

Day 37

Just a couple of garden pics today. I planted 3 plants my friend gave me yesterday from her garden. 

Red dahlia in the Cool Bed - hmm - well it is nearly autumn so I'll let it stay.

Patio shelf display still blooming well.
