Well…. I am home alone this week as Hubby has gone to Cyprus on a school exchange, today he has been to visit the school, baked bread in a traditional stone oven, had to run for shade beneath some orange trees cos apparently its rather HOT out there, been down the beach and is now enjoying the delights of a Greek night! He has also taken the camera so all my photos are with him and I haven't downloaded them…. so nothing much to show you.
A little bit of home decorating….
I repainted this old MDF dresser using Duck Egg blue chalk paint and then waxed it. I am so pleased with the result. Even though it took a few coats and I was painting it for days! Yesterday I painted 3 canvases with the rest of the paint to put on the wall… inspiration about what else is going on them has yet to strike!
The following photo is a clematis that has flowered for the first time in the garden after 3 years! (I almost gave up hope) Its called 'Miss Batemen' and its absolutely beautiful.
Also more excitement… (I'm sorry at this point if you are not a gardener, you can go now and read the next blog because you may lose the will to live!) I spotted another clematis growing up through a bush. I think I planted it here years ago and I thought it had died as I never saw it again. I've lost the label so I wait with great anticipation to see what colour it turns out to be!! OOOHHHH
The things I sow
Somehow don't grow
I'm sorely disenchanted.
But OH what luck
I have with stuff,
I never even planted!
Lastly I will leave you with a photo of my all time favourite spring flower in my garden, a soft pink Camelia called Katherine ) chosen because it had the same name as my daughter)
How PERFECT is that? Just like all daughters.
Have a perfect week yourselves…
