More Catching Up
As you can see I just caught up with the last four Barbara Brackman blocks.That's as much sewing that is going on here at the moment.
I have been working like a slave in the garden as this weekend our village opens our gardens up for the RED CROSS.
Teas will be severed at Manor Barn and in one of the village gardens they will be serving PIMMS. I just pray for a lovely sunny day.
We haven't opened for four years now and the last time we did DH was at home with me and he sat in chair watching the people coming and going.
It is the last time I will open and I personally will dedicate the day to DH who worked so hard when we came here and had to start a garden from scratch . He did all the landscaping and helped me plant over 100 hornbeam saplings, numerous trees, sowed the seed for the lawn dug mountains of manure into the soil and never once complained because he had vision.
We created this garden together and now someone else must take over the mantle. Thankfully the new owner loves gardening. She of course will want to make her own changes but in essence I think we leave a little legacy behind here the bones of which I hope remain for years to come.
