Hooray. It feels like summer is finally here and in an annual bid to act like a grown up and have lots of pretty things to look at, I have been getting my “green finger grind” on.
This year it is all about the window boxes, roses and covering myself in more soil than a little mole. Henley is definitely in bloom at my house (http://www.henleyherald.com/2013/02/13/henley-prepares-for-britain-in-bloom-finals-2013/). Who needs Chelsea Flower show when you have a slightly random girl with a bag of soil, one of those scoop thingies (I think the technical term is a trowel) and a deck full of unsuspecting plants.
Just to liven up the proceedings I also ordered some lovely prayer flags all the way from Nepal. I did consider sewing my own interpretation of a string of Tibetan prayer flags but after the terrifying horror that was a corset making course, I have had a terrible fear of sewing machines (I am not a natural sewer. If school was a series of fabrics then I would definitely be cut from the “smoking behind the bike sheds” cloth). Anyway, they look lovely and I am delighted. Plus I like to think that they are helping to bring a touch of joy, harmony, love, peace and abundance to this little corner of the world. They are certainly working on the cat, I often find him lounging under them considering the meaning of life.
If instead of my rambling you would like to look at some nice photographs then why not have a pop over to my Etsy shop?
