In a Vase on Monday

pink flowers, pelargoniums

I have picked all the flowers off my pelargoniums and lifted the plants.

In the past I have tried to dry them out and then repot in the Spring and planting out after frosts have finished – this had very limited success.

For the past couple of years I have dug them up and kept them going inside all winter, then planted them out again – each time removing the blooms and taking cuttings.

It seems to work and I get the bonus of flowers all winter.

I feed them with a little Tomato feed each week.

What do you do with yours?

A new baby!

My Godson and his very clever, lovely wife had their first baby today! There is always a touch of apprehension waiting for a new arrival, but she arrived safely and Mum, Dad, and baby are doing very WELL!

I have had a little coat waiting for her:

and a vintage flower button.

I have adapted a Debbie Bliss pattern.

 

I really like it as you knit the whole thing, back and both sides together, from bottom up and decrease for a raglan sleeve effect.

Then all you have to do is sew up the side and sleeve seams – magic!

Happy Day!
