Chelsea week 2018 (a biased view of my favourite things based on the TV coverage)
I can't take any credit for the photos as I have found them courtesy of the RHS Chelsea website and I have chosen the ones of the gardens or planting or features that I really like. It is a totally biased view!
The first is The Claims Guys 'A Very British Garden' designed by Janine Crimmins. It is indeed what a formal British garden conjures up - dry stone walls, roses, box bushes.
This would have made a beautiful fountain.

Sewing Projects...and plans
How can you not love a stripy sheep?
My next projects are these. Two (hopefully) simple summer tunic dresses. I have had the patterns for a while but have never got around to making them. I will make a toile version first, just to get the hang of the patterns and to adjust the fit - I have narrow shoulders so will probably need to adjust the pattern a bit.

The Spring Garden and last of the tulips
As promised, here is the third and final post about tulips this year. Above is Angelique, a really frilly, blowsy, over-the-top tulip. A couple of the flowers are multi-headed too.

The Spring Garden - more tulips (part two)
Blue sky and white clouds help too.
Here is Rhododendron Patty Bee flowering beautifully.
Ballerina and Red Shine in the border.The wall does show them off well.
Tulip Brown Sugar again. It has done really well this year. There will be one more post featuring tulips as there are two tubs by the front door, but they are not quite in flower yet.
