My Garden in July and update on adventures

Oh gosh!  It is rather a long time since I last blogged!  I have been busy with my 2 adventures: puppy and Etsy shop.  I’ve set up a sewing blog to go side by side with my Etsy shop.  It’s here if you want to pop over and have a look.  I’m really pleased with the blog header, but not so pleased with the photos in the blog posts!  I need to get husband to take some better ones.  All I need now is some readers, so I have been avidly commenting on sewing blogs.  If you are interested, there are some great blogs in the side bar.

Anyway, my garden is looking fabulous this year after replanting the south facing border last year:



I’ve managed to do a fair bit of gardening this Summer, even though I generally have a little helper:



He is pretty good at ‘helping’ with the housework too!  Here is is having just jumped onto the sofa!


We are taking him out for short walks now and he is very friendly with people and other dogs.  Puppy training classes start tonight, wish us luck!

Sewing wise, I am making a dress from one of my Vintage patterns, a 1969 shift dress.  I’ll show you when it’s finished. 

I am slowly taking photos for Rinda’s scavenger hunt, need to get a move on with this!

Linda your garden looks very full and lush, just lovely. Barney is getting quite big and good luck with puppy classes. I think your new blog site is very well set up, I like the name. Good luck with your Etsy shop. And so glad you have posted on this side of the blog :) said...

Such a very lovely garden ... I am afraid ours is mostly green :(. Off to follow your link, but before I go, hoping everything goes well with the blog and the shop.

Your garden looked very colourful here and Barney did make me smile, peering out of the border! Good luck with the Etsy shop - off to find out more!
