Yesterday we did a lot of work at Dad's. I cleaned the bathroom after the decorator and then rubbed down all the paintwork and sugar soaped it. I also rubbed down the paintwork in Dad's bedroom and sugar soaped that too. DH stripped out the kitchen !! We were both very achy last night and I think (know) I did too much :(
Today we popped to Dobbies garden centre and I bought two new hanging baskets, a large bowl planter filled with plants, two reduced mini bowls of plants and 6 herbs to plant in my herb pot. We have their membership card (thanks to Tesco vouchers) and every month have vouchers for a free coffee so we popped to the coffee shop - I was naughty as I succumbed to a cream doughnut, I haven't had one in over a year!!
Here's my garden with the new bowl planters at the front - we've just got Dad's water feature out ready for the summer so my little garden is looking good. The pixie clematis is very late this year but it's green flowers are just about to burst open.
My orts jar for this year is growing well -probably because I am midst gift stitching and doing the monthly Drawn Thread pieces. Anyway here's my jar for April 30th
