Monday’s Meander Round the Garden

It’s amazing the difference a little bit of sunshine makes. We’ve just had a lovely weekend, chilly mornings due to the clear skies,but lots of sunshine. I managed a couple of hours tidying up in the garden in between glossing skirting boards!

I finally got round to trimming the membrane underneath the pebbles in my planter corner, I’ve sorted my pots a bit too, I can’t arrange the properly yet as next-door still need access to that corner, but at least I’ve got a nice view from our arbour for my morning cup of coffee.

The rose tree that grows over the arbour is just coming into leaf, they’re a beautiful shade of red, especially with the sun behind them.

I moved Hubert the Heron back to his place overlooking the pond. We usually move him a bit nearer the house for the winter as the back is quite exposed with a gate to a footpath, but everything will soon be greening up.

Daphne the Duck has a new place too by the daffodils. I made all these wire sculptures at workshops run by Susan Nichols, some were through the WI, others I went to her workshop in Fridaythorpe, I’ve made a goose and a chicken too. I rather fancy making an owl next to sit on top of my obelisk.

The trees are just starting to come into leaf, in the sunshine you could just see a shimmer of new leaves at the top of the trees, really pretty. It won’t be long before it’s all green again.

Hopefully we’ll have a few dry days now so I can get out into the garden a bit in between decorating jobs!

About craftycreeky

I live in a busy market town in Yorkshire with my husband, kids, dogs and chickens. I love trying new crafts, rediscovering old ones, gardening, walking...anything creative really I started this blog after my New Year resolution worked so well. My resolution (the first one I've ever kept!) was to post a photograph of my garden on Facebook every day. My hope was that I would then see what was good in the garden and not just weeds and work, which was my tendency. The unexpected side-effect was that I have enjoyed many more hours in the garden. I am hoping that 'The Crafty Creek' will have the same effect. Happy creating!
