It's been a lovely, quiet, ordinary couple of days. DH has done so much in the garden that it's looking very tidy now. He goes back to work next week and was keen to get it done during his two week break. We went to a local garden centre yesterday and bought some plants and a couple more tubs. I managed to find some slug repellant rather than slug killer - slugs and snails just love our damp climate and munch their way through everything soft and tasty in the garden, but I hate to kill them. Once it's all done I'll take some photographs before the weeds start growing again. We've got estate agents coming to value the house next week, and the garden should be looking just right, so I've just get to get on top of the house.
One of the jobs was to clean out our very small pond. We didn't have any tadpoles this year, which I suspect was because it was very clogged up with old weeds and fallen leaves. After clearing it out we topped it up with a shower of fresh water from the hose hung high up in the tree. The three resident frogs - two adult and one youngster - really seemed to appreciate it.
I've been working on a quillow for DH's niece, whose birthday comes up soon so it's a quick finish. I'm also still going on the Mr Men sampler - up to number 9 now. But nothing much to show, so I thought I'd share a photograph of my fabric store. But Blogger's playing up again, so I can't! Better luck next time.
The weather is lovely here, but set to change. Typical for a Bank Holiday! I believe it's a Bank Holiday weekend in America too, so best wishes to everyone for a lovely long weekend.
