Hydrangea


On the photograph this hydrangea looks pink but it is almost red and,very striking and ,the lavender hedge you can just see is absolutely alive with bees . someone,s honey must have been good this last 2 yrs
This is bluebell stroking the fabric we bought today from Kisco-also known as the fabric guild. I needed stuff to send to my daughter in law, bluebell is making a quilt for a friend and needed sashing.
The fabric guild do have a website now and if you live anywhere near middle England and you are a quilter it is well worth the journey.
We were sitting having a coffee at the fabric guild, idly chatting and browsing through a magazine. I came across a page in Homes and Gardens showing a beautiful garden with a statue .Quite unconcernadly I said to bluebell "thats what I,d like in my garden now, a statue of a tall lady" before I could finish the sentence she said " I,m a tall lady, if you give me a jug to put on my shoulder I,ll get my kit off and stand out there"---well I nearly fell under the table laughing , I,ve got a very lively imagination but I ask you, what would the neighbours think, she,s not a bad looker but a greek goddess!!!!

I look down my garden and start giggling, I can just imagine bluebell disrobing to the tune the stripper and posing with the jug--cottonreel
