I have stolen a few minutes here and there to work on the quilt, progress is slow but at least there is a little progress.
I have managed to get some what I call necessity sewing done, altering Dad's pyjamas. He is not good on his feet these days so if the pyjamas bottoms are too long he does fall.
We really have had a mild winter so far with record high temperatures, although a lot of rain which has caused flooding in a lot of areas. Apparently everything changes tonight and there will be a drastic drop in temperature, it is already feeling cooler and frosts and snow in some areas is predicted. Consequently I thought it prudent to have a stroll around the garden and rescue what I could before the onset of the bad weather. We were blessed with quite a crop of dwarf carrots, which are a wonderful sweet carrot and have now been gathered in.
If you take a walk around the garden it would trick you into thinking it was the early onset of Spring. Already the new growth on the pinks and lavenders are beginning to show.
Bulbs are starting to emerge from their winters sleep, the mild weather is confusing Mother Nature.
Flowers are beginning to appear...
Did I mention the weeds and the length of the grass? If it wasn't so wet I would get the lawn mower out and cut it back. It will be interesting to see what effect the cold snap will have on the garden and the effects of the long standing water in some of the pots which I have no doubt will freeze.
Is the weather affecting your garden?
See you soon.
