I hope you have had a good week and are looking forward to the new one ahead.

We've had a mix of weather recently.  At the moment it is tipping it down.  Dad will be pleased as the garden needs it.

Here are some photos from last Thursday in dad's garden.


Still don't know what this one is, but it's opening up more now.



A Gazania that was planted last year.  It's managed to survive and the flowers are huge.



More flowers coming out.





I managed to get a photo of my dad:)



Polly trancing in the Pampas Grass.





My beautiful girl.



Albe has seemed off colour.  Yesterday he had a slight swelling to his cheek again.  Think we will have to see what the vet thinks.



Thanks for stopping by.

Don't forget to hug your hound/s.

WOYWW 25th June

Here is my WOYWW (What's On Your Workbench Wednesday).  If you want to know more about this weekly event, take a look at Julia's blog http://stamping-ground.blogspot.co.uk



Here's a birthday card I made recently.




A card for a Swap where the theme was Thank You or Thinking of You.




I got these plastic containers a couple of weeks ago.  They are perfect for ribbons.




I got these clear plastic zip bags in Morrison's.  Planning on getting some more and using them to store oddments of ribbon.




I hope you all have a lovely WOYWW.

Well another week is almost over.  They say as you get older time goes quicker.  Well soon it won't be worth my while getting out of bed:) 

It's been another lovely day, although it did go hazy this afternoon.  Temps were more than hot enough.


Here's a Kalanchoe (Flaming Katie) I bought the other day.



Here's Albe in the garden today.



Roses looking lovely, although not much scent.



Dad's little flower patch.



Here's Polly a short time ago.  She'd had several wanders round the garden and a couple of zoomies, so is happily worn out:)




I hope you have all had a lovely day and an even nicer one tomorrow.

Don't forget to hug your hound/s.

WOYWW 18th June

Here is my WOYWW (What's On Your Workbench Wednesday).  If you want to know more about this weekly event, take a look at Julia's blog http://stamping-ground.blogspot.co.uk


Well after watching a fair few videos on YouTube about storage for craft rooms, I thought I'd see what containers I had that could be utilised.

This little Washi Tape holder is made using two hard plastic boxes that I've had since Christmas (they had Ferrero Rocher in, which are long gone:))

I have only used double sided foam tape, but will glue it eventually.



It stands on one lid and then the two boxes are stuck together on top, with the other lid as a little dish on them.


I hope you all have a fab WOYWW.

It's raining here, but temps warm already.  Hope the rain stops, so the dogs can get out into the garden today.



You may think this is a photo you've seen before, but it's new this week.  Polly loves roaching:)


Well I hope you have a lovely weekend.  Don't forget to hug your hound/s.

Well I hope you've all had a good start to the week.  We've had some beautiful sunny and hot days, but also a lot of rain often with thunderstorms.

I was at my dad's yesterday and as it was dry and sunny after a lot of heavy rain, I went for a stroll round the garden to see how the plants were doing.

Polly had to come and investigate.

Miss Diva didn't want to be photographed.

 Albe didn't care, as he was happy in his bed.

Small Rose bush.

This one is a climber.  The scent from the buds was beautiful.

This is the same as the climber, but it grows into a bush.  This is a bud about to open.

This is the Rose fully open.

Beautiful scented Pinks.



Well you all take care.  Don't forget to hug your hound/s.

Well I hope you've had a good week and are now looking forward to the weekend.  We've had some torrential rain, but today is sunny, temps are rising and most importantly it's dry.  All change tomorrow with rain and thunder storms.  Then Sunday it's supposed to be dry, sunny with some cloudy spells.


I've been looking at old photos recently.


 Could this really be me?


My dad loves this photo of me.


Me, Mum & Roger on holiday.


Me with Badger my first pet.


Aren't photos a wonderful thing.  They bring memories flooding back.



Well you all take care and don't forget to hug your hound/s.
