Once the drizzle cleared this morning and I got up from the sewing machine I decided to take a look outside the shop and see how the garden was going - it's Spring here and the weeds are loving it! I knew there were a number of buds about to open but here are a few of the roses (please ignore the odd blackspot, I just can't get rid of it), then I popped into the pool house where I keep a few orchids, and they have done their thing too. Maybe the red rose can represent the rememberence of Armistace Day at By Hoki Quilts.
As I sit writing this I am able to look out on one of the brightest flowers in the garden, it's such a shame that there is no scent with it though. The poor thing was pretty tatty looking when we first moved here, but now it's starting to thicken out from the bottom up. I'd like to say that, that was the plan all along, but it is just good luck on our part, rather than good management - my fingers definately are not green!
An amazing flash of colour as you drive up towards the shop, I'm so lucky that the previous owners planted it.
Next year I must try to get a good photo before the rain makes it all soggy.
Hope the joys of Spring, regardless of the season are reaching all of you .
