Good Friday Morning Ladies,
I hope that you are well and looking forward to the weekend, we don't have anything planned (as usual), I'm not sure what the weather is supposed to be, they did forecast that we were getting the ends of storm but we seem to have missed that so far (thankfully), so we will potter about in the garden, the beans are coming to the end of their time now and peas had already finished, so they will get dug into the soil as they are a good source of Nitrogen, there is a lot of weeding to be done too, all of the rain that we have had lately has increased the amount of weeds two fold, why doesn't it do that to the plants too. Paul is creating a plan for growing next year, there is a farm with a stables that has loads of free bags of manure for collection, we will get Mat to collect some for us in his truck, that can be dug in and left over the winter, we still have Sprouting Broccoli, Brussel Sprouts and Cauliflowers growing for over winter, the Sprouts are coming on nicely, I am quite excited to eat our own sprouts on Christmas day. We have Leeks growing too so lots of lovely Leek and potato soup for those cold winter days.
Your Next Challenge
For our next Challenge I thought that we would continue our theme of Flowers through the Seasons. So Winter Flowers/ Winter theme is the theme for this week. I think that we all need to make a start on those Christmas cards anyway, (well I certainly do!!)
So time to dig out those Poinsettia Dies and stamps, but we can use Berries too, so Holly, Miseltoe, Ivy, Christmas Roses, pansies are winter flowers too, there is so much inspiration on Pinterest, I will be using this weeks theme to get a start on my Christmas cards, I don't make as many now as the cost of postage has become ridiculous. Having said that I have plenty of card bases, so maybe we could all make super simple cards that are flat to post, you can give the impression of lots of layers with some clever stamping these days.
As always I cant wait to see what you all create, I hope that you all enjoy the challenge XXX
Have a lovely weekend my lovelies,
Love and hugs to all of you,
