Mary Mary, Quite Contrary... does your Garden grow?
Well it's not doing too badly Thanks!!!!

The pond is settling in. Hopefully, we'll adding our Carp in there soon :D

We now have our greenhouse...contents at the mo are, Tomatos (4 varieties), Lettuce, Cucumber, Radish, Spring Onion and Strawberries.
There are a few flowers but i'm not sure what DH chose.

Pear Tree...

Apple Tree...

And another pond shot...and the grass is growing. I'm so proud of my DH, who has all this on his own...i'm the finger of death when it comes to plants. He's even made his own plantpots aswell!

On The Fiddle...

The pattern Fiddlehead by Anne Hanson.
This lovely scarf is for Juliet so she can showcase her lovely yarnGlisten which is a laceweight pure silk.
I used 2.75mm needles for this scarf because I thought it showed off the yarn better than it being too 'holey'.
The pattern is really lovely too :D It drapes like a dream, all I did was give it a light steaming and the yarn does all the work.

If you happen to be going to WonderWool Wales, you will be able to it in the flesh so to speak.

And really does Glisten :D

What A Difference A Day Makes!

Last weekend I was on the East Coast of Yorkshire....Filey was our main destination. It rained, hailed and blew a gale for nearly 2 days.
Then, almost as if by magic, this happened.

Eternal Optimism.
How blue is that sky?

And yes...he caught one :D

The last 2 shots are of Bridlinton Harbour. These were taken around 5:30pm, so as you can imagine, it had been a really fine day; all day.
