but it's supposed to be Autumn! The plum tree did the same thing this time last year. We experienced a slight cold snap and then went back to lovely warm days again and I think our poor tree got confused.
Still it gives us hope that Spring will be here before we know it. Oh who am I kidding! Winter is only weeks away and there's no way it will bypass us. Lets just hope we don't get a UK winter. I really couldn't handle that.
I did manage to get into the garden on Thursday. I thought it was high time I removed the purple Salvias. They were supposed to be red for Christmas but must have been mixed up. How annoying is that?!! You may already know that purple is not my colour - at all.
There were plenty of pretty flowers to choose from at the garden centre. I've always been keen on white flowers. I like how they glow under the lights. So we have white pansies and some cute pompom things.
And these looked too fun to pass up. Aren't they amazing? So old fashioned looking and so much like granny squares. I hope there is a good mix of colours. I can't wait to take photos of them to show you.
They are all in the ground now, but they do look a little uneventful at the moment don't they?! But I'm full of hope for them. They are starting to look very perky now.
Today I've been thinking about my apron for my swap partner Heleen. I've even managed to find some very suitable fabric in my cupboard. Fabric I'd forgotten about, but just perfect for this project. The pattern is all sorted so it's just a matter of time before I cut it out and stitch it together.
Have you all made contact with your swap partner's? I'm hoping so. Isn't it lovely to have the chance to get to know another blogger? I've really enjoyed organising my first swap so there will certainly be more. The hardest part was deciding what to swap, but clearly, judging by the number of participants, aprons was a good choice. We ended up with 80 swappers! Woo hoo!
I'll have to put up a list of blogs so we can all see what each person makes. Please be patient with me, it will be a work in progress. Anyway must be off, happy stitching!
