Only 6 “sleeps” until Santa! We mustn’t get too excited. We have had alternate sunny, rainy days this week but I’ve managed to find enough, sort of, for this week’s Six-on-Saturday.
I bought some cyclamen and red pansies to brighten the front door troughs. I hope they last until next summer.
I hope the red pansies don’t clash with the pink cyclamen in the back garden troughs. All the other colours of pansies had sold out.
The sempervivums in the other trough in the back garden are still thriving.
The orchid is entering its 8th season. I must tie the flower stem to its support – it seems to be trying to escape.
Mr & Mrs Propagator’s #4 child asked for a crocheted bed cover since her big sister and Mrs Propagator had already had one made from the traditional Granny squares. So I thought I would get away with this on Six-on-Saturday since it is definitely floral……..not sure what flower it is, anyone know the name?
Well, so, it was like this…….about 35 years ago, our younger daughter decided we needed some more tasteful decorations on the Christmas tree (as well as, not instead of, the toilet roll Santas). She bought some nice red apple baubles, but, they have gone off and been affected by the damp or the mice in the garden shed or a horrible apple disease. 😒 Anyway, I peeled off the bumpy skin to reveal a polystyrene centre. Fine, I thought, I will spray them with some bright red paint left over from the hydrangea heads or maybe a couple with red, glittery nail varnish. Unfortunately, as you can see, both just melted the polystyrene. So, bring in the crochet hook and the red, glittery yarn and quite an acceptable result. 👍
Happy Christmas, look after yourselves and see you again on Boxing Day. 🌲🤶🎅👋
