Crocheting and flowers

Even though I haven't been doing much crocheting, my granny stripe blanket is now taking shape. I'm pleased with how it's coming on and I'm excited to see how it will look once its finished, that might be a long way off though!

Here is my progress so far.

The pink lupin in the rockery is flowering now and looks lovely.

I don't know what has happened to the red lupin though! It went a bit funny after I bought it but it seems to be perking up a little bit now.

The foxglove isn't flowering yet but seems to be doing well.

I haven't seen any ladybirds yet this year, which is unusual. Last year it was about April when I first saw them and we had quite a few around the garden. I guess it's the late Spring making them later. I haven't seen many butterflies either, just the Large Whites.

I have been busy uploading my mums photos to Flickr now that you get 1 terabyte of storage and unlimited uploads, it's nice to look through the old photos. I will be packing tomorrow to go on holiday on Friday, hopefully I will get to do some posts while I'm away.

Hope you all have a great week!



  1. The colours are lovely in your crochet, looks good so far! Lupin may have been nibbled by slugs. Hardly any ladybirds here, I've seen about 3 so far. Enjoy your holiday.

    1. Thank you, I'm using Attic24's pattern but copying BunnyMummy's colours-seaside colours. I did see the slugs had been on the lupins, hopefully it will still flower. Thank you, looking forward to the holiday and hoping for nice weather!


Thank you for your comments, it's lovely to hear from you!
