This is a plant called Dierama 'Merlin' which bought at Hampton Court Flower Show about 2 years ago, this is the first year it has flowered so I am quite pleased with it. It grows to about 5 feet high and loves sun. How it is flowering after such a lousy summer I just don't know.
Another picture of my tubs at the front, they are colourful you have to keep checking if they need watering, but it's a nice welcome to any visitors.
I just love these Passion Flowers, some body once told me the story of Christ behind these flowers, but another senior moment as I can't remember it. They do spread every where you have to be lethal at times and hack it back!
I had a good weekend, my DS was 46 on Sunday so all the family went out for Sunday lunch, we had a carvery and it was delicious, doubly so as I didn't have to cook it, and my DH didn't have to wash up. I can't believe where the years have gone, it doesn't seem any time ago I was chasing after him for something he had done. Does this sound familiar?
I think this will be the last time we all meet up before DGD No 2 goes away to Uni.
Enjoyed watching the opening of the Olympic Games, I wish they had had Tom Jones singing at the end instead of Paul McCartney, as he would have got everyone swinging! If you don't enjoy sport you are in for a tough time at the moment as it is sport, sport and more sport. I am loving it, but and this is a big BUT I am sat with my sewing and look down to do a stitch and I miss something vital, like a goal or a good shot.
But I am not giving in, my productivity may have dropped a little, I am hanging on in there.
Up date re: health things, The optician put the wrong numbers on the computer for my left eye hence why it was blurry, new glasses being made. I had my scan and that's a game as you have to have a full bladder for a kidney scan, what a 'relief' when that was done, no kidney stones were seen, as I was in a lot of pain could I have passed them. Either that or I really am going doally. The dentist thinks some dentine has been exposed so I get pain, he has put 'magic' stuff, desensatiser around those teeth (which stopped the pain) and advised me to use Sensodyn toothpaste. So there you go I am up and running again. I checked out the new Hobbycraft shop, lovely jubbly. I bought a few things, and I shall be back there again very soon.
Just going to send off my next exchange goodies, I hope my secret partner likes them. How are you all, busy with sewing and everything else we have to cram into our lives I expect. My DH has just reminded it is about 5 weeks before our village show so I have to get my act together and finish my entries. So here I go, so bye for now, and thankyou for visiting my blog, I love hearing from you all and reading your blogs. Take care!
