On the indoor crafty front, I've been doing some more stash-busting by crocheting some cotton dishcloths. I do love using these.
In the garden, the year is racing ahead too, with everything filling out, and big and bushy (including the weeds).
The cardoon at the front of this pic is threatening to take over the bed. I do love the enormous dark purple thistle-type flowers that pop up, but it's going to have to go to a new home at the end of this season, to make room for everything else. The solanum is starting to cover the trellis nicely, though.
I'm so glad there's more yellow and pink popping up now, to balance the purple everywhere. Can anyone remind me of the name of this beauty below, please? It's such a vibrant orange/yellow - love it!! Just thought, looking at the leaves - is it a buddleia? I thought they were just shades of purple, with cone shaped flowers?
The pond area is filling out well, with more welcome colours.
Indoors, I've been spending loads of time on Pinterest, and am finding it really helpful in collecting ideas for the downstairs shower & loo for Mum, storing bedroom wallpaper samples for her to look at, etc. I love it, but, at the same time, it's very time
Hope your week is going well, and see you all over at WOYWW with Julia - http://stamping-ground.blogspot.co.uk/2013/06/whats-on-your-workdesk-wednesday-211.html
