Monday Musings.


Remember this baby quilt?  Well the baby who it is for has arrived!  Ivy May Bishop was born last Saturday and weighed in at 8lb 2oz, Mom and Baby are doing well.  I will hopefully get some pictures when Grandma and Granddad get back from The Netherlands. 

We had a great time at Goose Fair on Friday and Saturday DH and I ran some errands and then he was out at a swimming event so I was busy trying to finish the other baby quilt.  I am now sewing the binding on.

Yesterday the weather was good although cool so we got the front garden tidy and gave some of the plants a hair cut (!) and did a few things in the back garden.  This week the temperatures during the day are going to be warm again, Wednesday being the hottest at 22°C!!  I want to get my little growing house and the shed and the Boys Den re-stained so may sneak the day if it is going to be that warm and get those jobs done.

Here are some pictures of the garden as it settles into Autumn and will hopefully do well going through Winter, although they are still forecasting a very cold one!


The large pots on the step have my daffodils in so we just put some violas in until they start to grow and put some other Winter plants in the other two pots.


Treacle loves it when we are outside in the garden with her, just getting her in is the problem!!


Below is the other side of the patio.  We need to trim some of the plants here but it will wait now until Spring.


Our Dogwood is really beginning to stand out next to the variegated Holly, which this year has berries on!


The Hardy Fuchsia still flowering despite it being cool.


Come on Mom it’s dinner time, stop taking pictures!

I have been at my desk all day today clearing up hundreds of emails and sorting other things out.  Tomorrow I have some errands to run and no doubt more work!!!

I hope you all have a great week.

Hugs, Susie xx

    Your garden looks so lush compared to mine…you enjoy working in the garden and I really don’t! As you are looking up towards the back of the garden, what is that on the left side above the steps? Looks like railroad ties but I can’t really tell. Glad you are getting warmer weather…much cooler here and daughter #2 is going on a field exercise this week with Hurricane Michael scheduled to go right over her, dumping up to 12″ of rain (she’s not happy about that).

    We just love that baby quilt and can’t wait to see a picture baby Ivy! Hey, Treacle – mom groomed me this morning and it’s going to be up near 80 degrees F here, which is totally unacceptable for autumn!
    Your gardens always look so beautiful, Miss Susie.
