I am not a knitter (bit of a tongue twister saying that!) but managed to knit some rows to make myself a nice new cotton dishcloth. I prefer to use these rather than have the blue disposable type sitting next to the sink.
Other than knitting, I have been out in the garden again. The plum tree has more blossom opening and the pear tree is not far behind.
I have been buying up some smaller plants for the garden from my local Morrison's Supermarket to grow on. The carnation above was £1.50 and it looks bigger already since I planted it up.
I also bought this variegated thyme plant above and the primrose below. I wouldn't normally advocate supermarket shopping too much but think that plants offer real value for money compared to some of garden centres and gardening catalogues.
Today I have sown my first lot of cherry tomato seeds. I am not going to be growing lots of vegetables this year however, I have decided on a year of flowers instead and hope to share lots of lovely blooms with you as the year progresses.
