I will do a little round up at the end, but I want to get straight on with my post today because it is a collaboration post with my lovely Hubby who took the photos for this post!
Yesterday we were sitting in the garden, I didn't know what I was going to post about and suddenly I was inspired. Ask Hubby to take five different views of the garden from his point of view. It is interesting to see how someone else seems the same things.
Here we go with five of the photos that he took!
Looking up from underneath a rhubarb leaf. It is amazing how you can see the veins isn't it. My Hubby is quite artistic when he wants to be and this is just the great sort of photo that he takes.
We have been watching this crazy foxglove. It started out fairly straight and then the end starting to curl around in a kind of spiral and now it has this odd kink in it. They are beautiful flowers, but they do do some odd things!
This is a view of the garden that I love and somehow never manage to capture in photos myself. I liked the framing and the view and so on of this photo.
This rhubarb leaf isn't quite so beautiful in some ways. I love the colours together though and it is interesting to see the way that this leaf is decaying.
Do you remember our great yucca dividing experiment last year? Well, it was very stressful for me and I feared for both parts of the plant that we split up. I am pleased to report that both parts are doing really well. One has about five baby plants growing and just look at what the other one is doing....
Yes! That is a flower spike! Yay!!! To say that I am excited is a massive understatement. I love it and I also really like Hubby's photo of it with the little blobs of colour in the background from the plants that are behind it.
A lovely sight and a great photo and yes, you will be seeing more of this!
Those are Hubby's five pictures! I hope that you enjoyed seeing them and seeing the garden through someone else's eyes for a change.
Thank you to everyone who has been watching and commented about the podcast, so lovely of you to say such nice things! I really appreciate it, but most of all I am glad that you are enjoying watching me chatting away.
Next week I will have a crafty round up on the blog so that those of you who don't watch can see what I have been doing and also I can show you some up close still pictures without me waving things around!!
I have decided that I will probably record once a fortnight or so. This weeks episode was longer than my previous ones had been, but I felt that it was better and worked better for me and for the content too. That also means that I will have more chance to share crafty things here on my blog too as I feel that has been lacking lately.
Thank you for the good thoughts about the accountant meeting. I have heard back that my paperwork and record keeping is OK so that is good! Phew!
Tomorrow I have an appointment at the garage to have my car fixed. Hope that goes well... Keep your fingers crossed for me. I love my car but it is 15 or so years old now so getting a little worn.
This weekend we have plans for more DIY probably for Hubby as he now has the "downstairs loo" as we call it in England to tile - next to the laundry - and other things too. We also have to visit Man and see if we can resolve an issue with his washing machine - my suggestion is to buy a new one... A couple of our pots are looking a bit bare so I might try and pick up a few plants to fill the spaces and of course there will always be crochet.
I have started really reading a book that I have been reading snippets of for ages, it is called The Mitford Girls and is a biography of the Mitford family and sisters. So far so good, I just want more time to read it!! I will let you know how it goes.
It was great to read your thoughts on my book review this week. I think there are only a couple of the Tommy and Tuppence books which is why they are less well read I suppose, but we all seemed to agree they are enjoyable so those of you who haven't read any might like to have a go sometime.
Your thoughts on the paintings that I shared were interesting too. Like many of you I wouldn't want the Jackson Pollock in my home, but it was interesting to see and as I said, very different from looking at a picture.
Well, that is it for this week I think. I am as always writing this on Thursday evening and am off now to nurse my rotten cold! Yes, I am taking Vitamin C to those who suggested it before, I think that I might need to add a multivitamin despite all the salad I am eating at the moment. There is a bottle of gin and some tonic water in the fridge. I wonder if that will help my cold... Perhaps some vitamins from a slice of lemon!!
I hope that you all have a great weekend whatever you are doing - or not doing! Thank you again for joining in!
