Purple & Blue in the Garden
Like last month I wanted to make a quick record of what is out in our garden - and have another got at some modern calligraphy.
It's all about purple and blue at the moment... the orange tulips and daffs are all but gone. The bearded iris are blooming, there are enough buds coming that I didn't feel too bad about bringing one stem in for a vase. These iris' were transplanted from my parents garden and have expanded so that now that have a quite a patch.
The alliums are almost at their best, the salvia just coming into flower along with the nepeta (which always reminds me what a great backdrop it made when I hosted the nursery photo course a couple of years ago... )
So it's been busy in the garden and busy with me too. Hence the lack of blogging... I'm hoping to get a chance to catch up - but I think I'm always chasing that dream!
Cotton Twist (my new business venture) is taking up lots of time at the moment - which is mostly a good thing. Orders from our website are starting to pop up - some from readers here which makes me very happy so THANK YOU - you know who you are! We've also just launched a storefront on Not On The High Street and I've broken my longtime aversion to Facebook and we have a Cotton Twist page there so please come and show us some love if you feel inclined!
I'll be back soon - I promise. In the meantime, happy Friday everyone! Have a great weekend.
