I’ve been inspired …

I was reading Lucy’s blog over on Attic 24 and it inspired me to post some of the photos from my own garden that I’m loving at the minute and making the most of before the rain returns (afterall this is Lancashire).

This is my favourite part of the garden – our tiny little kitchen leads out onto this little square of decking which is a fabulous sun trap.  Problem is I think I’m spending far too much time sitting out here and not enough time inside doing stuff that needs to be done – ah stuff don’t you just love it!!!

I think I’ll have to restart some of my crochet again as recently I’ve concentrated loads of my sewing and crochet has taken a bit of a back seat … but ….. I could sit outside in the sunshine and crochet rather than sit inside at my sewing machine …. hmmm sounds like a plan to me.

Last summer we went down to my brother and sister in laws in essex and everywhere we went people seemed to have these gorgeous hollyhocks in their gardens.  I’ve never seen them around Preston so I decided to plant some in my garden and wow one has actually come into flower.  I love it so much all six foot plus high of it.

Pretty little daisies that I’ve managed to keep alive and happy looking for the last couple of weeks and my little jam jar candle holders to cheer up the evenings outside.

So there you go just a few little photos from our back yard.  Good to have some sunny pictures though to look back on later in the year when it’s back to dull, dark and wet.  In the meantime I think I’m going to make a brew, grab some wool and enjoy the summer sunshine.

Catch you later xx

    Lovely photos. I used to live in Lancashire so can relate to your enjoyment of a minute of sunshine.

    Hi Janette

    The garden looks lovely and I bet you will be sitting in that little sun trap even in the winter on sunny days, I had one in a previous house. I am only sad that I don’t spend enough time sitting there with you with a nice glass of chilled wine while Neil is slaving at the stove creating one of his many delicious meals. I love the buntings and the hollyhocks. Sorry I haven’t been up lately, must remedy that. Would like to see some of your creations on here, don’t keep them to yourself!

    David is boarding a plane as I write this and arrives in England Thursday morning…..soo looking forward to seeing him.

    Must go to bed now…..hope you are enjoying your holidays.

    Carol x
