Life has been pretty fast paced recently and as you all know, when the going gets tough, the tough retreat to the sofa with a Pimms and their comfort knitting.
Kauni is still waiting a neckband and some button bands - in the meantime foxglove has grown a back.
I'd love to show you some wonderful arty photo but as will be the norm for the next nine months it's dark now and anyway the back is a riveting stretch of coral coloured stst.
In an attempt to liven things up I've added a few friends.
The dolphin is south american (I think) and was a present from my father who saw it and knew that I would love it (as indeed I do). The whale is a present from New Zealand from my parents - if you pull out the eye it all comes apart as a jigsaw puzzle and when it's together it has nice curves from its joints!
are my more impressive finished object - actual tomatoes which survived the drought/flood/drought weather we've been running. They were yummy!
And finally, grow your own sunshine!
We planted a mixture of yellow giants and these red ones but the fat pigeon ate the tops of the giants. The giant in the background is over the fence and belongs to the neighbours who have apparently managed to intimidate the fat pigeon - I must ask them how!
