A productive week..............

Long time no post as I have been trying to discipline myself, less time on the computer and more time to work and of course, the garden beckons.
I have a series of little bears all waiting to be trimmed and I have been busy with embroidery on tiny dresses. Some naked bears, definitely a work in progress as the poor little panda is still blind and waiting for eyes................
and one little girl called Venetia is all complete and now on e-bay........
Something I have noticed over the years of observing my garden and wild flowers is that the floral seasons also seem to follow a pattern of colour. In early spring there were all the yellow flowers, mainly daffodils and lots of dandelions but now I have noticed more white flowers such as this beautiful expanse of ox-eye daisies growing at the side of the road .......


don't think my photograph really does much justice to this incredible mass of flowers, unfortunately not easy to photograph as this is a busy road with little space to stop. I love wild flowers and plants (with the exception of stinging nettle!) and plan to get out all my long neglected books of herbal and wayside plants. I have forgotten many of names of the plants and need to refresh my ageing brain.
Our village produces a little monthly newsletter with all the local happenings. Megan noticed that there was a cross stitch group meeting on alternate Tuesdays in our neighbouring village. There is a vibrant knitting group which meets earlier in the morning and at this stage just a few cross stitch enthusiasts but we received a warm welcome, hope to attend the meetings regularly.
Will add some more pictures of all the completed bears soon ..............
