Today I have been revelling in the abundance of flowers in the garden at the moment and picking a few bunches for the table.
We have lilac that smells divine.......
...purple and white bearded iris, I think it is called 'Jesse's Song' this variety, it is my best flowering iris, I have quite a few different varieties but this one flowers the best. I counted 32 flower spikes in various clumps around the garden......
....and I made a little posy of different pink and red flowers, a few roses, snapdragons and some apple blossom, very pretty!...
They certainly brighten up the table and my day!
Tomorrow I am going to make some rustic climbing frames for beans and peas, so I will show you some pictures then. I am also going to plant sweetcorn, zucchinis, snap peas, lettuces, carrots and beetroot. It is great to be getting stuck into the garden again, I love the springtime!
Probably a gardening post tomorrow, so be warned!
Thank you for all the lovely responses to my flowery pincushion garland, you are all so kind, I am glad you like it! A couple of questions were asked about the wool and hook size, - I used 8 ply 100% wool, just used up various dribs and drabs, with a 3mm hook for the big ones, and 4ply wool with a 2.5mm hook for the smaller ones.
I am so happy if I have inspired anyone to have a go at these, so feel free to make the same!
Hope your weekend is going well!
