The rhapsody in blue blooms were accidentally snipped off by yours truly. Please note my elegant glassware haha anyhoo, you'd really think the Rose would be a bright pink given the bud, but it had opened the very next day already a shade darker - and this beauty fades to al out a slate blue before the petals drop off and it's scent, especially in hot sun is divine. Like sweeties. Not floral really at all.
Absolutely loved making this Janet Clare bag.
You would not believe the trauma from posting these photos! I'm going to video it! It jumps about like a flipping frog and I'm far too hot and sweaty and narky to cope! It's been epically hot and thundery here the last few days!
This week I've been walking Bluebell first thing daily, pottering about pleasing myself. Not sure what the weekend holdout The the HG is off for the final two weeks of the holidays before back to school.
Until then, keeping cool with frozen hot water bottles and a fan! Being peri menopausal isn't helping when the hot flushes arrive, usually at 2am!
You know last week I told you I'd forgotten the pan of rhubarb? Well this week I forgot about the pan of butternut squash, carrot and swede I was boiling in veg stock for the topping of my cottage pie! I sc aped off what. Could and actually I quite liked the background smokey aroma flavour. Four days of epic efforts to clean that pan.all sparkly and clean again! I wonder what I'll forget about this week?!
Lots of love from
