The flies and chronic hayfever have stopped me from gardening past 9.30 in the morning, but I've still managed to mow the grass (note that I don't write "lawn"), move another barrel, fill it with soil and plant rocket and baby spinach, and also plant some more strawberries.
Look at my snow peas!
This lettuce is growing so fast that we can't eat it fast enough.
After gardening it's back inside for a shower, a handful of anti-histamines and the rest of the day on the sofa crocheting with the Gilmore Girls. Not that I'm complaining, mind you!
Yesterday I went to the Rose Gardens and Old Parliament house to watch the wedding of a dear friend's daughter. Between the roses, the beautiful bridal party and the carefree attitude of the bride and groom, this was probably the prettiest wedding I have ever been to. Inspired by the prettiness of it all, I went shopping straight afterwards.
Pretty Grignasco Strong Print sock wool. Probably it will be a Radiant Shawl for me. And Cleckheaton Country 8 ply at the very pretty price of $2.
And my pretty Radiant Shawl is still coming along nicely, thank you for asking. I can't wait to finish it!
