How does your garden grow?

Stitching together some garden goodness for a quick row by row swap this weekend….

made me think of checking on the progress of the ‘real’ garden.  Seeing as it’s spring here in the southern hemisphere, there’s lots blooming at this time of year….

  I like to call her Charlotte……or maybe Charlie if it’s a male???….I wonder if Charlie, my cat, will be offended???…doesn’t look like it!

So far, the garden’s doing ok.    No silver bells or cockle shells though….but lots of pretty flowers all in a row don’t you think?!!!

Sugary hugs

Gosh the garden is really blooming! Your rows look just the thing :)

Gosh, I absolutely adore those hibiscus!! Our spring has been rather cold, fruit trees are just finishing flowering and I have just discovered the first sign of life of our tropical frangipani. I can't believe how gorgeous your roses are, I didn't know you could grow them that far north! With the weather getting better it's really hard deciding whether to do sth. outside or sew - you obviously manage to do both and well! xo
