It was a busy weekend. We hit the garden centre. So many gorgeous pretty flowers.
And you just have to treat yourself to something really indulgent and yummy in the cafe.
Didn't stay like that for long…..
After some major calorie intake it was back to the business of buying plants, well buying pansies actually. I adore pansies, to me they are the ultimate Happy Flower with cheerfull faces held up to the sun.
Also had to get new gloves and snips (lost my snips last week in my weeding frenzy. Hate to think where they ended up. Went for pink this time, why not have pretty pink hands and snips instead of standard green. I am now 'in the pink'.
Back home to the garden.
Finally finished all the weeding and de-minting and moved on to the mega mulching.
Wrestle with a new mini greenhouse kit. Must house the pansies etc till threat of frost subsides (could be in there till July knowing this area!). As with anything like this l found myself floundering on the floor of HQ with a pile of long rods and a pile of short rods and plastic bits that just didn't want to join things together. Did think that the joints were,'t in the box, toyed with idea of having to drive back to garden centre. Then realised that the plastic bits were not just supports, they were the joints as well. Then spent ages lunging at the thing to get the joints to click into place. This would have been much easier if my partner in crime/general assistant etc was around to help – oh no, she had abandoned me to the joys of a Garfield film on TV – you really cannot get the staff these days…………….
On Mothers Day l got breakfast in bed cooked beautifully by Idgy, she has redeemed herself after abandoning me yesterday. Then we were off to do some thrifting.
I got this fabulous square teapot. Originally came from a cruise ship in the 1920s. I love teapots and tea cups, bit of an addict here really. Cannot resist adding to my little collection. This little pot just had my name on it…………….
Now this fabulous old coffee grinder (now a spice grinder in HQ for cloves etc – and it works!!) was a freeby, a case of 'you can have that old mincer Karon, it's a no-goer', well it's not a mincer and l'm thrilled with it. It now has a place on the wall in HQ and a new job.
So that was my weekend. Got things done, got new things. Happy with the weekend.
