A stroll around the garden

I took a stroll around my very neglected garden and found some lovely things to share. This red one above was peeping over the fence from next door.

The next two are veiws of the Philadelphus... orange blossom... and the smell is gorgeous.

I don't know what this following shrub is called , but it is really good value, from the early leaves which start off as bronze then change to this colour as it flowers.

This rose has an unusual colour

Meet Madame Hardy... she has a gorgeous scent but only flowers once... I love the quartered shape and the green eye.

I don't know where this delicate little beauty came from she just appeared!

Computer Playtime

Having seen Digital Gran's post this week, I decided to try a bit of competition... just for fun!
So here are my efforts. The original bowls are on my Pictureaday blog.

The aliens are here!

Just to complete the plagiarisation of Margaret's page, here is what the site she quoted had to say about my given name! Pretty much true except for the success bit... that was always hard come by!

What Dorothy Means,

You are balanced, orderly, and organized. You like your ducks in a row.You are powerful and competent, especially in the workplace.People can see you as stubborn and headstrong. You definitely have a dominant personality.
You are well rounded, with a complete perspective on life.You are solid and dependable. You are loyal, and people can count on you. At times, you can be a bit too serious. You tend to put too much pressure on yourself.
You are wild, crazy, and a huge rebel. You're always up to something.You have a ton of energy, and most people can't handle you. You're very intense.You definitely are a handful, and you're likely to get in trouble. But your kind of trouble is a lot of fun.

You are a seeker. You often find yourself restless - and you have a lot of questions about life.You tend to travel often, to fairly random locations. You're most comfortable when you're far away from home.You are quite passionate and easily tempted. Your impulses sometimes get you into trouble.
You are truly an original person. You have amazing ideas, and the power to carry them out. Success comes rather easily for you... especially in business and academia.Some people find you to be selfish and a bit overbearing. You're a strong person.
You are a free spirit, and you resent anyone who tries to fence you in.You are unpredictable, adventurous, and always a little surprising.You may miss out by not settling down, but you're too busy having fun to care.

Hi There,

I shall have to be careful that updating my Blog doesn't become a habit... grin
I have had some fun again today playing with an image I took at the garden centre the other day. I love the look of these pots, but I am not sure that I would want one as the colour would detract from anything growing in it. I guess if it was just a non-flowering shrub it would be good.

Well it's well past Christmas and the New Year and I thought I better add something to my Blog! I keep forgetting to do it but will try to mend my ways... think I have said this before.

Here is a not very good picture of a quilt I have just finished and given to my sister. There are lots of mistakes to the experienced eye, but hey I did finish it! I had a lot of help from my friend Pat in order to get it finished and I am very grateful for that.
