I arrived at my Happy place today, driving through heavy rain and mist into the sunshine. My happy place is also known as my Craft Caravan!
Today I hit the knitting! This is another UFO ( unfinished object) from my Supersized stash! It started out as a sweater project but was too big so is being reincarnated as a throw or Afghan. Well it was BIG!
I love this yarn and it is so soft. Hopefully it will be good to snuggle under when eventually finished. I will keep you posted!
Also I was not in a happy place when I first arrived as my Peace Lily was very sad. I’m guilty of neglect as I have not been here for a few weeks due to global travelling. The Peace Lily is now in intensive care and hopefully recovering. I must admit to running more of a Hospice for plants than a nursery as my fingers are definitely not green.
My annual attempt at gardening happened this week! I don’t have a garden just tubs, plant pots and countryside. I do have a lovely glass globe that I recently rescued from a life full of sea shells and converted it into a terrarium.
I assembled the succulent plants, potting compost and a few remaining shells. Planted up the glass globe and voila a terrarium!
Time will tell how successful it will be so watch this space. In the meantime…..
On our recent trip around South West Scotland we visited Logan Botanic Garden. Logan Botanic Garden is one of four National Botanic gardens of Scotland. Even though it was (another) misty damp day we enjoyed our walk around this enormous collection of plants. We saw specimens from Australia, New Zealand,Tasmania, Europe, Asia and Nepal to name but a few. I loved the walled garden.
The history of the current garden dates back to 1869. It is currently maintained in the most beautiful way with an eye for conservation, collecting, and research. It is a feast for the eye and an assault on the senses with perfumed flowers, grasses,trees,mosses and ferns.
We enjoyed the remaining Autumn blooms and giggled at the “Filo Pastry Tree” in the picture. Mainly because they then attempted real filo pastry that night on The Great British Bake Off!
