Hello to you.
Hope you're all having a lovely weekend?
Here is my first attempt at a tea cosy...
I wanted to use another knitted tutorial here.
But in the end decided I wasn't confident enough to pick up the knitting needles again.
I will do sometime though.
My daughter had a 'Teacher Training Day' on Friday, so we all had a lovely family day out at Bodnant Garden. It's a National Trust property - you can have a look at more professional photos here.
Here are a few photos from our trip...
Here is the famous Laburnum Arch. Unfortunately it was just about finished but still pretty spectacular.
The rhododendrons had made a beautiful pink carpet of petals.
Beautiful natural pond.
The house is maaassssiiivvveeee!
The lily terrace was in full bloom.
A lovely seat.
Cascading down the wall.
Amazing old trees.
Beautiful rose garden, the scent was amazing.
I took so many photos but spared you most of them! Tee Hee!
I didn't come home empty handed! My lovely partner bought me a rose.
This is it in full bloom in the rose garden in Bodnant...
and here is mine freshly planted today.
Here are a few more photos from the garden today...
The mystery plant is now flowering, anyone know what it is?
One tall Foxglove.
Through the allium.
Thank you all for your lovely comments on the last post!
Hope your weekend has been good one?
This is my 50th post, it wouldn't be the same without all you lovely people.
Till next time.
