Our rhododendrons are blooming, even the little one in the back row. We bought it just a few weeks ago to replace the Physocarpus that was growing too big for the space.
The Alchemilla, Lady's mantle, always keeps the raindrops on its leaves longer than any other plant.
Two new pairs of socks finished, a father and son set.
Then I needed to do some unusual sewing again. This chest of drawers originally belonged to my mother's grandmother, and my mother wanted it to go to her own granddaughter, my daughter Kaija. As this is a very large piece of furniture, she has nowhere to put it at the moment, so I'm keeping it in storage for her. To keep it safe, it needs some protection,
and so I sewed a green hood for it with batting on top and some corrugated cardboard in the front as a shield against hits.
This biggish willow has grown around a street lamp at the corner where our driveway begins, and the men who changed street lamps a couple of years ago could not get to this lamp at all. We told them it was not our tree but the town's, and we would be pleased to see the tree gone.
Finally, after only two or three years, they came with professionals and machines.
The tree trunk is being moved away under the electric lines.
Only a stump is left, they cleared all the branches away. Hurrah, so much less raking of leaves in the autumn for Mr K. from now on, and maybe less moss in the lawn when the sun can reach the grass better.
