As you know MWM and I have been beautifying the inside of our home recently but Spring has arrived here, which prompted us to get out into the garden and spruce that up too.
We pulled up all the dead stuff, cut the grass, trimmed the edges of the lawns, hoed and planted up some pots. We also jetwashed the paths and patio and filled in the spaces with sand and cement.
MWM was clearing out the understairs cupboard and found a lovely bowl I forgot I had so, to put it to good use, on Friday I bought some hyacinth and minature daffodil bulbs to put in it. The daffs flowered on Sunday, I'm still waiting for the Hyacinths but they should be out soon.
Then on Monday the Amaryllis, which my good neighbour bought for me about 5 years ago, flowered.
Isn't it beautiful?
Two of our grandchildren, Harry and Gracie, stayed with us on Friday night and it was such a lovely morning on Saturday that I took them to the local park for an hour, which they thoroughly enjoyed.
Last night I tried out a new recipe for dinner - Sweet potato mash, Lincolnshire sausages and Red Onion and chilli relish - deelish.
Yesterday, when I got back from my Zumba class, we spent the day sitting in our lovely garden reading and enjoying the sunshine in temperatures of 20C - lovely.
This morning I'm back at Zumba then we plan to do some outside painting, hopefully we will get it all finished with time left to sit enjoying the sunshine again, as the weather forecast is for more wall to wall sunshine.
Well that's all my news, enjoy your week.
