Finished at last - my Quirky corner mirror
It has taken so long through bad weather, guests, Alan having a nasty cold for 3 weeks, and the fact that our fence is not level or straight.
Our neighbours over the back are several feet lower than us due to living on a hill
so we are stuck with a concrete holding wall and concrete posts that go deep into the ground which are not in line from the time the house was built I guess
Bringing the fence in a couple of feet would not be a good idea as this would leave a 'no man's area' which would be overcome with weeds in no time
so it was not just a job of hanging the mirror but attaching it to a frame to make it level
I have always liked the idea of seeing my garden in reverse
and the sense of seeing beyond the fence!
I am sure there will be lots of pictures of this next Summer plus some bunting in the corner
Rose bed emptied and turned over
Will be planting with just one colour
A David Austin deep red with gorgeous perfume
Having a change from mixed colour beds
and this rose bed will be grassed over
when we first planted this one the shrubs on the left were small
now they are all mature it leaves little room for working around them so watch this space
we get so flooded here - this was after the water had receded
The delicacy of fading Autumn colours
enjoyed having the Grandchildren to stay during school half term
When did pyjamas begin to have Tutus on them ?
My first visit to a play barn (though not the Grands of course)
Here we see Oliver (centre) with friend
and 3 year old Rebekah coming down backwards
This was just after opening time
by the time we left it looked like a frenzy
They enjoyed the morning with the Grandchildren from next door
all of them with such high energy charging non-stop for nearly 2 hours - Grand parents and Mums exhausted from watching!
Had 24 adults and 4 children from House church for Soup and bread last night before a time of sharing
I made 12 portions of Carrot, Orange and Ginger soup
while others brought about 30 portions between them
Carrot, Lentils and Chilli, Mixed vegetables and Root Vegetables
Heating so much soup up at one time in the kitchen caused the windows in my kitchen , back sitting room and conservatory to stream with condensation afterwards
As outside was cold and wet it made me long for the warm Summer nights when one can open windows and doors
