March......really....

February 29th was our bonus day.  We had the day at home.  The time was put to good use ....more inroads with sorting and decluttering,   By afternoon it was time to stop, pour a glass of wine and then enjoy a good dinner.  We ordered a Greek from a nearby restaurant.  It worked out easier to phone in and pick up the order.  It was a nice treat.

Here's what is happening on the patio.  Just a bit of added color makes all the difference.


Blue skies overhead and sunshine make any day great.  And just over the hedge I can see my parent's home.  Lots of memories and reasons to smile.



This end of the patio has been regrouped.  I've already discovered that Sully has a long reach and some of the planters will need to be raised up more or built up.  He is creative.  Snap hooks on the pillar hold the extension gate secure.  The rest of the patio is still off limits for Sully.  We're going to place more of the clear panels in between the border fencing and the hedge.  It's on the list.







I've been reading and enjoying blogs and trying to leave comments.   I know I'm tardy with replies to comments on my blog.  I sincerely appreciated everyone who stops by and leaves comments.  Bit by bit the big picture stuff is being worked through, it's just taking time, more time than I could have imagined.

The other day I read  of a teacup tree on http://www.craftygardener.ca.  These tiny crocheted teacups are so cute and so much fun to make.  I'm up to ten so far.  It's a great way to use up small scraps of yarn too.


 

With the chain 11 for the handle I did a slip stitch in the base and then started the bottom.  I looped through the base row and made two dc in each and a slip stitch to join.  It meant an all in one project.



Definitely more of these to be made!


And every now and then, it's nice to daydream of far away places.  With modern technology and views from live cam, it is almost like being there!   I did say almost.   




that's it from this corner....till next time.
