Tidying up...

The garden has been looking a bit scruffy, it's that time of year when the pots are past their best and we've lost the colour from the summer flowers.

So  a spot of gardening was in order, a bit of tidying up, replanting, bringing back some colour to our neglected patch.






Something to look at through the kitchen window...



A little burst of sunshine...




I love a bit of ivy, it seems to look nice with everything, and hasn't minded being moved around from one place to another.




The garden looks much nicer and I'm hoping we'll still get quite a bit of use out of it while the weather stays so mild.

Of course there has been some crochet happening too, also in the tidy up vein! Our dining room table is looking a bit shabby around the legs, courtesy of some wee doggies when they were younger, so I made it some socks!



 The scruffy bits have been hidden, mission accomplished!

Time for a rest... after sorting out the laundry. Washing machine and tumble dyer doors must be kept closed while not in use, and thoroughly checked for pussy kittens before using!



Don't they look cute curled up asleep together...



Take care

  1. Your flowers look cheerful. And what a clever idea about the table socks -- never heard of that.

  2. I really should have been having a bit of a garden tidy up myself this weekend, yours looks lovely and the new displays will cheer everything up again as we head in to autumn. I love the table feet, what a great idea. There's nothing cuter than a heap of fur babies, is there?

  3. I'm so glad that you check the machines before doing your laundry. Hot, dizzy pussycats are not recommended.

  4. I guess that the cats were looking for somewhere warm to sit, but you can do without them going inside your machines can't you!! xx

  6. The flowers look great! I've also been taking the time to clean up the scruffy planters.
    Love the kitty! Cute wee puppies too! I just got a new kitten, and am having a ridiculous amount of fun with him! Happy Fall!

  7. What a lovely post. Having a garden clean up always makes you feel good not to mention getting out the hook and yarn.

  9. Your garden is looking tidy and the flowers are so pretty. Your pets are cute and adorable too and I think the crocheted table leg covers are a clever idea. Have a lovely week and thanks for stopping by. Marion

  10. Nice job on the pots and baskets. We still seem to have weeds springing up here. It must be the unseasonally warm weather encouraging them to keep growing!

  11. Well hello there. I'm about a month late reading this, and what a cute idea for the table legs. Only I'd have to wash them on a daily basis because the hair that sheds from my little 12 pound dog would stick to them like crazy! So glad you check for kitties before starting the dryer. They are adorable all snuggled up together in the laundry basket on the clean clothes! Ok....time for another post now that gardening season is over. I have a little more time to read.
