I have been getting a lot of use from this old English tea pot with a cosy that my mom gave me last year. The pot is full of hairline cracks, so cannot be used for tea.
I removed the top (the cosy) and put a glass jar inside to fill with water so I can use it for fresh flower bouquets. During the past month, I have had three different bouquets in it.
About a week ago, DH came home with these supermarket flowers. When the purple flowers died out, the Gerbera daisies still looked OK, so I saved them.
It has been cold and raining here for the past three days so I have not been able to do anything outside. On Sunday I did plant three containers. I went out to the garden and dug up my only heuchera Villosa 'Tiramisu'
It has not done well in the garden. I decided to try it in a container. I am much better with container plantings than I am planting in the ground. I can also see and enjoy it more often in a container.
I am hoping all of this rain will kick my garden into a major growth spurt. Maybe by the weekend I will be able to get outside again.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
