Flowering garden and a new job!

Right… For the last couple of weeks, my only project on the go has been the knit and crochet top because I had a couple of weeks temping work, all very exciting but straying, slightly, from the book and creatures that I set up this blog for! I would like to say that this post is completely about my creatures but, alas, I’m on a stray again! I noticed today that the snakes heads that I planted a few weeks ago have opened, and they’re so pretty!

My daffodils are up too! I’ll have to cut some for the house…or just bring the pot inside!!

I have much news today, I’ve been offered a job! Temporary again but longer term and they seem to keep employees and move them about so it could lead on…

The only problem is that I’m going to have less time for my creatures and blog! 😦 but I’m sure I’ll squeeze in time!

Anyway, look out for my next post…going to be pics of my book pages! I might get too excited and post them tonight too but you’ll just have to wait and see!

Until the next one…

Balcony gardening

So, I have actually done some work on my book this week…I swear that I’ll put the couple of pages that I’ve set out on here but at the moment, I’m really excited about my little balcony garden! Matt is really the one of us that is into gardening, too much dirt under nails for me, but I fancied growing some flowers and he is more of a produce gardener!

Anyway, we went for a tour of Homebase and B&Q and got daffodils, snakes heads and a few to put in together…I so haven’t forgotten the names already!

I really like the different heights of this one, can’t wait until they all flower! The taller ones’ll end up looking like this…

The snakes heads I’ve just potted on and the daffodils are staying in there pot for now.


I’ll keep you updated on them…provided I don’t kill them before they flower! Oh, and sorry for the state of the balcony floor, someone’s coming to fix it as soon as the estate agents sort it out…could be waiting quite a while!

Until the next one…
