Hello everyone, so nice to be back! And great to see you! Did you have a good weekend? I hope so. Our weekend felt like a short one, just because we didn't really do much. Plus, those two May Bank holidays last month, where we got an extra day over two different weekends, got me nicely accustomed to a three day weekend. Saturday was full of mooching around, crocheting, and planning to make a cake, but not getting round to it. Sunday, now I think about it, was actually crammed full of activities!
We visited an Open garden on Sunday. We've been doing a lot of that recently, and it's been to the gardens of very grand residences. So we've been very spoilt! We didn't stay long at the garden we saw on Sunday, because it wasn't a particularly amazing garden, very nice, but not amazing. There was one thing that caught my eye though!
We wandered off and out of the garden after that, and headed back home, where Hugo got to work on doing some carpentry, and I got on with baking a Victoria sponge. I actually had to do a second cake, as the first cake, using the first recipe, was a bit of a disaster. The cake that was meant for afternoon tea, using recipe number one, was abandoned. A second cake, using recipe number two, we had for pudding, with our supper.
While I was busy baking two cakes, Hugo was working his magic in the garden. On Friday night, we watched Gardener's World on the t.v. There was a demonstration on making a roof garden for a shed, and after it had finished, Hugo turned to me, and suggested he make a roof garden for each of the wood stores! How amazing is that?! What a wonderful idea!
And that, my dear readers, is my post for today. I wonder if I'll dream of rooves with gardens on them tonight? That would be a lovely dream................. Well, take care, and see you tomorrow. Sweet dreams! Love Vanessa xxx
