In the Garden

The garden is lovely this year even if it is the size of a postage stamp - that would be due to the new(ish) shedio!

I love these lilys - they come back year after year - whatever the winter frost do to them!

The baskets are overflowing with petunias......

.....and geraniums.

Here is Saphy guarding the shedio.

A Short Break from Beads

Took a weekend trip to N Ireland and it remained sunny
. Had a great time meeting up with friends Ron and Lyn (Ron is taking time out to sail around the UK). We caught up with them at Portaferry. We then caught the ferry to Stangford for lunch. On the way back caught a wee glimpse of a pair of dolphins - no picture I'm afraid.

We spent Saturday with son Andrew, daughter-in-law Claire and their lovely girls Isabelle and Sophia. A lovely sunny day in garden with a barbeque for lunch - what more could you ask for? Maybe just to round it off with an Italian meal in Belfast - so that is what we did.

New beads

I've been using shards and murrini so here is a sample. Been told off for boring photos and have to say I have struggled a bit with them so I have ordered a light tent to try to reduce the reflections in the glass. Hopefully things should improve!!
