Would you look at that? Another weekend lies ahead! What are your plans for this spring, Mother's Day weekend?
I've got a date with my garden - there will be branch chopping, garden tidying, a burn pile to construct, outdoor furniture to paint, and, oh yeah, SEEDS TO START OFF. I'm late to the party, but given that the Met Office delayed spring because of the Beast from the East weather system I don't feel too bad about it. But it's time - I got a whole lot of growing plans. (By the way, I get all my seeds from The Real Seed Catalogue - open pollinated, heirloom seeds!)
And for indoors, or outdoors with tea, some knitting to keep me company. These luscious yarns by West Yorkshire Spinners in Peridot and Pink Quartz are such a tonic after the drab days of winter - perfect for spring! I can't wait to cast on.
Have you felt the spring clean bug bite yet? I have. Loud and clear. Oh I'm itching to whip this house back into shape. I've pulled this gem off the book shelf to get me started on homemade cleaners. One of my truly favourite books. Time to get my pinny out and roll up my sleeves to fill these growing days with good, solid work.
Happy Mother's Day to all my U.K. friends!
