Hi there - I can't believe it's only a few weeks since I last posted - so much has happened in the Teddyware household.
I'll get the sad one out of the way first -
We had to say goodbye to Theo, our 17 year old cat, for whom life had just got too much.
We have a secret, you and I,
That no-one else shall know.
I see you on the fence at night
As cars go by and headlights glow.
And then as I reach out my hand
As I crawl into my bed,
I feel against the warmth of you,
I touch your silken head.
In daytime I walk up the path
And see ahead of me,
Your dark form on the windowsill
Alive again and free.
Is it only I that hears your purr
In the still house as I pass?
And when I call, only I
That sees the bending grass?
How lovely is that?
On a much happier note, the garden is coming on leaps and bounds! Hope you enjoy the pics -
You can just see mini raised beds between the large ones - I'm going to plant fruit bushes in these, and train them along the fence.
Next to the pond is a new patio - I wanted it down the bottom of the garden, to catch the afternoon/evening sun. This was how it looked on Wednesday, 1/3 laid.
It's all a race against time now - the guys doing it for me move on to other jobs after next week, and there's still the rest of the original garden to do - line the pond, lay 2 slab paths, dig out new flower beds ....
I'll post some more as it happens (if anyone's interested - although it's very thearpeutic to put it down, even if I'm the only one to read it!!) together with pics of my girls, when they arrive. Hopefully, they will settle and get to look as healthy and happy as Geraldine here -
I hope you can see from this, why indoor crafting has had to take a back seat for now, & you see why I call myself a 'flutterby'!
I love making new Facebook friends so, if you want to mosey on over to join me, look for this profile pic of Geraldine alongside my name (Porter) you'd be very welcome
