Now I didn't expect to have anything blooming in my garden this year.
With tough water restrictions and little rain predicted I was anticipating pulling out dead plants rather than weeds. Not so, there have been a few cooler days and rain just when the garden needed it. Compare this to January 2006 with not one day below 30 deg C and NO rain.
And being surrounded by all this beautiful lushness inspires me to create.
I've finished punching my new design and now I just need to sew the bag together. When I start a new design I'm never entirely sure how it will turn out. I just add a bit here and try it there....
The spot fabric is Polkadots by Free Spirits. The stripe and floral fabric on the last post are from the 'Lulu' range by Anna Griffin.
And a bit more about the garden....
Last summer I thought I would lose the Rosemary hedge, it was turning brown. Now look at it. Yes, it does need a trim, but not until it's finished flowering. Why do I love this hedge? Because it smells fantastic. Brush past it and the scent clings to your clothes and stays with you for hours.
