Off to England for three weeks, relaxing, gathering sewing supplies, antiquing and eating and drinking with family and friends. When I am back I will be sewing avidly again so see you soon.

Wartime Gardening

Found this wonderful site with a good old recipe and a really good film clip of wartime gardening. Not only doing flowers but cold weather bulbs and seeds for veggies are going in too. Onions and brussels to start.


Gardening today, recreating an English wild flower garden with flowers like this.
