New

A couple of new items made it into my etsy shop this weekend, both handy sized little pouches which are very useful for keeping things together in your bag. There is a springy turquoise and green as a new colourway, and the popular purple and navy. Click the pictures to see more! Lots of time was spent in the garden this weekend, the lawnmower is now mended so the grass has been cut, edges trimmed, weeds pulled. I rescued these pretty forget-me-nots before the lawnmower got them - I have been extending our lawn area and patiently waiting for the grass seed to grow to a good height before giving it its first cut, these were growing in amongst the new grass, self seeded from the ones in my flowerbed. Then I decided to tackle the last piece of the garden that is still overgrown. It is quite large, around 15 foot long and about 4 foot wide, it was quite theraputic clearing it of all the weeds and lots and lots of ivy. The only trouble was I then had a whole car load of stuff to take to the tip! It still needs lots of work and digging over, but I have some plants from my dad waiting to move in, and we are getting there. : )

Your pouches are adorable (and they coordinate very nicely with your bouquet of forget-me-nots). I love clearing garden space; it is so meditative.

I love the green/blue pouch! Very striking and fresh....V. jealous of the forget-me-nots. Probably my favourite flowers....so dainty!

Your forget-me-nots are much darker than ours. I see a few of the pale blue, that's what my back yard is full of. Didn't know they came in royal blue too. Pretty.

I do love forget me knots - hoping ours spread like fury now they are established. The garden is gradually taking shape, it is my 'project' for this year to transform it from a green rectangle to a 'real' garden! :) x
