When it comes to tending the garden
It is purely a matter of taste
Preening and pruning the foliage
Will stop you from feeling disgraced!
With a bit of trimming and strimming
You can create a real work of art
Perhaps a Bermuda triangle
Or maybe a cutesy love heart?
Feeling a little more daring?
How about a smart landing strip?
Or maybe just take the lot off
So, your pubes won’t get caught in your zip?
Something a little more special
Like a blingy, sparkly vajazzle
That’s sure to tart up the topiary
And give it that old razzle-dazzle!
However, you keep the lawn tidy
You mustn’t leave it too late
Don’t let it get too unruly
Or no one will enter the gate!

Here we are again with a very Silly Saturday!
We had such a giggle with this one – I send Judy a photo of what I have created and hope it makes her smile – she sends me back her poem and it makes me laugh out loud.
Do pop over to Judy’s blog to enjoy more laughs and a wry look at life.
Another art piece inspired by Amy Gear, an artist born and working in Shetland.
This a link to Amy’s piece that inspired me – on Instagram
I have been away for a few days and needed a small easy project to take with me, so I made a start on the Coastal Cosy.

Thank you for all your helpful input on the colours. As you can see the Pink (Soft Peach went in). I have no idea why I wanted to start with the sky bit, but there we go, I did.
Then on to the sea – but it is looking a bit dark and stormy so I will add in Aster next to cheer it up.
I’m waiting for a yarn delivery and I’m excited to see if Blush will be added to my next ‘sky’ section.
Linking with my cheerful cheeky playmate, Judy Martin, for another Silly Saturday
Some are baggy and saggy
Some are perky and pert
Some are tiny little gnat bites
Some so big that they hurt!
Some are flabby and floppy
Some are bouncy double Ds
Some are wrinkled and crinkled
Some hang down to the knees!
Some are always kept covered
Some are all over YouTube
Have you guessed what these are yet?
Yes! A nice pair of boobs!

We have something a little more risky for you next Saturday!
You have been warned! 😉
Judy’s blog is, most deservably, up for an Award and I’m delighted to say so is Wild Daffodil – pop over to Sasha’a Blog and have a look to see all the different categories. You might see one of your favourite blogs there and give them a vote!
I’m thinking of making another Cosy Blanket using Coastal Colours.
Can you help me decide on the colour palette.
The yarn is Stylecraft Special DK
1st Row: Cypress, Cloud Blue, Sherbert, Sage
2nd Row: Sage, Denim, Cream, Storm, Petrol
3rd Row: Camel, Soft Peach, Grey,
Bottom Row: Lincoln, Buttermilk, Silver
With the pink – I’m thinking of soft sunsets over the sea
or without the pink: sand, sea, sky, rocks, sand dunes, cliffs

My son will run 86.2km today and into the night
See the whole of his team here..
They are collectively hoping to raise £104k for Macmillan Cancer Support Nurses, and have raised over £90k so far.
They have all completed three gruelling runs of over 30 km each, been blown to bits by a 2 hour hurricane during the night, scaled mountains, skidded down sand dunes – the adventure of a lifetime.
I shall be glued to the GPS tracking and live updates on the website, and the outstanding photographic coverage – and crocheting like mad!!!
Ralph at the finish on Day 2 after 7hours 13minutes and 54 seconds covering 39km
Looking amazingly good!
