Squally Sunday

Today inbetween and during rain showers we have been over to Wallington...I went along to price...just price an archway that I need (lol) to train some jasmine over....we have inherited a very old jasmine plant here so need to get it up off the ground and the fence and over an arch way, but before that can happen a stump of another tree has to be removed.....hopefully that will happen this week.  Last week at the hardware store I bought some hanging baskets....they have been waiting..... but when I am in a garden centre I get a bit excited and we came home with
...parsley seedlings for one hanging basket......I scavenged some hooks from the builders heap of waste...I think they hold up the spouting....am using them for hangers but I am not sure how strong they are...we will see!!

..pansy seedlings for another hanging basket...

this one has seaside daisy...I took a few bits from Eve's garden last time I was there and they were sitting in a jar and have sprouted roots, so I hope they grow happily...

and this basket has bright red geraniums...

and under the kiwi fruit that has stopped growing I have planted a banana passionfruit....loved these when I was young....the supervisor is not sure what I am doing....

come to check everything out....

and I also came home with a tamarillo, or tree tomato as I knew them growing up...love these off the tree or in chutney.....yum!!!!

I did a little more stitchery last night.....

and the Aussie hero quilt is finished and ready to post....

the main reason for gong to the hardware/nursery shop was for DH to get some pavers to create a path from the house to the super shed door...when we bought them several broke as the hardware man picked them up...he said he hated selling faulty stuff....well DH got them into the path walked on them once and four broke...he is not a happy camper!!! Back to the hardware store me thinks!!
Off to do some sewing now...on no...actually might have to take the supervisor for a walk....have been avoiding that today so far....off to dodge the rain drops!!
Happy sewing.

Love you new header! Oh dear, faulty pavers? Baaaaad business. I love geraniums, infact I am collecting cuttings of different varieties and colours to plant alongside our fence. The arch sounds great, did you actually buy one? Or did you get side tracked with other things? Loooove your Buddah quilt.

The Supervisor look very cute on your new header. Your hanging baskets will look great in a few weeks.
