Despite now being officially autumn it really doesn’t feel like it. We’ve still been spending lots of time outdoors and even picnicking our dinner in the park…Earlier this week we were graced with some rain – the first in over a month. It’s remarkable how just a little rain has perked up (maybe I should say greened up) my garden already. I thought you might be interested in what’s growing right now… it’s a little difficult to tell in my vege jungle exactly what’s weeds and what’s food:
Due to inconsistent watering (we can still hand water here every second day) almost everything in the vege garden has gone to seed… and blight/powdery mildew has set in all over the show.But the sun lovers like marigolds, zinnia and this beautiful calendula have thrived in the dry. Like little rays of sunshine…On the crafty front, I’ve been working on a new wrap. This time it’s my own design (yes, there will be a tutorial and pattern soon), in a lovely yellow. It is a simple design, but rather effective and I am extraordinarily happy with it.
