Sorry I have not been around this week, I have to confess I haven't touched a craft thing all week.
Hubby is doing up the backyard, pointing the walls and painting with Red brick masonary paint. He dug all my old garden up and covered it with pebbles for me.
I have been trying to fill hanging baskets and pots all week. Mind you I have had to have more sit downs than filling.  I managed it in the end though. I have taken a photo but the sun had gone around the front of the house and it looks a bit drab. The black thing in the middle at the back is a trough full of plants, unfortunately I chopped the plants off. Don't let me lose with a camera near people they are always headless. It will look better when more of my flowers are out, it's the first time I* have filled baskets. I know you plant them on the sides but didn't have enough plants.
We are just hanging on to a little bit of sunshine here at the moment but it feels much colder. Hope you are having a good day. Hugs x ChrisB


  1. If this nice weather continues your pots and containers will soon be overflowing with leaves and flowers so don't worry about planting the sides. It certainly looks a pleasant space and not too difficult to look after even if you do have to sit down and rest at intervals. Take care.

  2. What a sweet little back yard - so and many wonderful pots. You must have felt so much better just being out in the fresh air and 'pottering'. I am so glad that you took 'before' photos as it's going to look amazing in a few weeks.

    I look forward to seeing photos of it then too

  3. It looks very neat and tidy - would your hubby like to come here next?
    I bet it will look lovely when everything is in bloom.
