Good Morning Ladies,
It was a much cooler day here yesterday, we had drizzle and rain showers pretty much all day, Lucy took me to take my 'fresh sample' to the surgery, it was pouring when we went. Oddly it's like rhe garden breathes a sigh of relief when it rains, you can almost see plants coming to life.
Except our lawn, parts of it are looking dead, I mentioned it to a neighbour and apparently around here they have a huge problem with 'Leatherjackets' which are Crane fly (or Daddy Long Legs as we call them) larvae, the eat the lawn, the only effective treatment is 'Nematodes' that you can buy and water in to the grass, they work for your plants and vegetables too.
It seems as though there is always something waiting to eat your produce before you can.!!
I am sharing Karen's 2nd 'Things With Things' Challenge card today. I love the mix of the older die cut that Karen has with the modern font for the sentiment.
"I’ve used a Sue Wilson Striplet Flights If Fancy
I took inspiration from Jackie Trinder who cut it out twice and trimmed off just the butterflies The die set comes with separate butterflies which I have cut out in vellum and stuck those in top of the Striplet but used the trimmed butterflies to give them s border
The sentiment is from the Elegant Daisy set"
Karen I love your card, thank you so much for helping me out. I am also so pleased that you got to spend time with your Grandsons XXX
I would like to thank you all for your kind words, I had another rough day yesterday but frustratingly I couldn't start my antibiotics until early morning yesterday as I had to give a fresh sample to be sent away for analysis, it had to be a sample taken before starting my antibiotics. So hopefully I will start feeling better today, I tried to walk up the garden to see what Paul was up to but I struggled to get past the back door, I just feel exhausted. Fingers crossed the antibiotics kick in soon!
I hope that you all stay safe and well
Love and hugs to all of you,
