Well, Hello lovely people!
How are you this fine evening? Hmmm?
I've been a bit busy this past week. The children broke up from school a week ago Friday, so I've been playing taxis. We've been tidying up the garden, and popping plants in here and there.
The weather's been teasing us a bit hasn't it? I've been bursting to get my runner beans planted up in the little plot they've been allocated, but I daren't in case old jack frost pays us a visit and I lose 'em.
And look at the little beauties! They're even bigger than this now, cos' this was taken a few days ago.
In front are the french beans...equally scrummy :o)
We had some help in the garden this week as the Easter holidays are upon us. It made us laugh because in every photo I took, for some reason, it was the time when our eldest was 'supervising' ....she did do some weeding and digging herself...honest ;o)
Look at their pale legs...I can't wait for more sunshine now.
Look at the gorgeous blossom that's bursting out all over our drastically pruned apple tree..
Isn't it gorgeous?
Now, I want you to look at this photo of blossom, and tell me..
Have you ever cut an apple in half.....horizontally?
You know, not in apple 'segments', but the other way?
Well, here's a useless/interesting fact for you.
The apple inside is split up into five segments, and it mimics the shape of the blossom...
See? Look at the blossom above, then look at the photo of the apple cut 'in half' below and see the stars/segments?
Full of interesting/useless facts this week I am! LOL
By the way I know the apple is old and wrinkly, I wasn't going to feed it to the children it was being cut for the birds ;O)
I got up early this morning to 'do' another craft fair.
It was in the most lovely setting...an old farm with a 'medieval' hall. Luckily I wasn't in the hall, (it was a bit cold in there) but outside in a marquee just by the door.
This is my stall before I set up...
And this is it after it was set up.
In the afternoon, the sun came right round and shone on me, it was like being on holiday:o)
At least we had more visitors than last time at the other fair. I sold a few bits this time, and had a good day...very relaxing.
I've been beavering away making bunting all week, but I didn't sell any lol, so that will go in my little etsy shop this week.
I've been wanting to show you this gorgeous little B&B up the road from me for a while, but I keep forgetting to stop the car (well it's about 5 miles up the road actually) and take a picture...
It has the most magnificent Camelia growing next to it which looks glorious in the morning sunshine.
The day I stopped it wasn't sunny (or the mornig) :o) LOL
But I wanted to show you it's quaintness anyway :o)
Have a lovely week everyone, and I hope it's sunny for you wherever you are.
Love Donna xxx
