A Busy Week....

19th May 2016

Greetings from Richmond, I have been busy gardening with my sister.....

....the before photos....


.....wonderful weeds....


.....such a pretty blue flower....


....but the roots are like long carrots and so hard to pull up!!!


A couple of days later, 2 full wheelie bins awaiting collection, 2 big piles of weeds ready to go into the emptied bins....


....a weed free bed, SO SATISFYING!!!

Also great physical exercise!


The trees are in full bloom...


....beautiful lilac.


>>>>>>>>>

Yesterday as it was too wet to work in the garden so we went to the V&A and saw 2 exhibitions, Reimagine Botticelli which was really interesting and Undressed: A Brief History of Underwear.
Also very interesting, so glad I don't have to wear  boned corsets!!!

This was an interesting structure....



....looking up, reminds me of pin art....



....the robot that has constructed it, hope to come back in June to see it working!

 I have finished my third pair of socks, not quite perfect but I have now mastered toe grafting , hope the recipient is forgiving and finds them comfortable!!

On a spa day tomorrow with my sister, daughter and niece......
