Nearly missed it Again!

Oh my word, last year my Blogiversary slipped by without me even noticing, but not this time!Can't believe it's been 2 years, I've met some lovely people too! Thank you to all that read my little blog and who leave comments, I love to read them and reply!

So lets have a giveaway! I have been knitting lots of cream mohair brooches so one of these will be the giveaway gift + one of my pinwheel pincushions, so if you're interested and leave a comment I shall enter you into the draw, overseas ladies very welcome too!

I have been working on the garden this week, and believe me it needs some work!

We haven't got much colour going on at the moment, apart from these

And these, but see the dead plant in the background? The trouble is time,Not enough of it! I think what I need are some low maintenance, pretty shrubs

The fence needs painting too but we are hoping to replace it this year.

We also need to work on this bit by the Conifer, there used to be a bush in front of it but it became huge, now what to do with the space!

This is last years photo of my pretty clematis.

Whoops! Wrong way up,What happened!If anyone has any ideas, or knows of any low maintenance shrubs please let me know! The plants I have already are, Lilac,Honeysuckle, Forsythia, Pyracantha, ornamental Cherry, Lavender, I do have a few others but I'm not sure of the names!

A favourite spot!

I'm off to the gym shortly with my friend Karen, don't forget the giveaway, I shall take a photo of the giveaway mohair brooch tomorrow!I shall also show you my loot from the boot!
