NEWS FLASH ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ It is actually sunny outside!
Last weekend Mr Sweet and I braved the dreadfully wet weather
and visited the Hampton court palace flower show
On the journey it was raining heavens hardest
but we had already bought our tickets
so we were going rain or shine…and boy did it rain?
as my father-in-law says "it was raining stair-rods"
Luckily we didn’t actually get too wet
we both wore ‘sensible’ shoes
unlike some silly billies there, wearing flip-flops and stiletoes!
there was a LOT of mud
slippy slidy deep wet mud
we felt a little smug with our choice of footwear
(well I did anyway ;o)
each time the heavens opened we were lucky enough to be in a marque
|Clematis 'Viennetta' you are on my wish list!|
We enjoyed all of the little gardens
I love the way that they only have a tiny space
but manage to cram in so many gorgeous and interesting
plants and features
that you could look at them for hours

NEWS FLASH ☂ ☂ ☂ ☂ ☂ It's now raining (again!)
There were so many b.e.a.u.t.i.f.u.l flowers and plants
I have been after a Ginkgo biloba for ages and I saw the most gorgeous one
It’s called ‘Troll’ which I though most appropriate for my fairytale obsession at the moment
So it just had to come home with us.
There was also a Country living marquee there which I didn’t expect
in there we came across the most amazing and lovely artist
her stand was breath-taking
So so SO pretty
she was telling us how she wanted her stand to look like a wild flower meadow
It really did
we bought two stunning pictures from her
(my photos really don't do them justice, but trust me they are gorgeous)
I really wanted to say
“one of everything please”
(I would love to have seen Mr Sweet’s face if I had!)
It is so wonderful to have Sweet B home
we talk about crafty projects and girly stuff to our hearts content
She has been busy making lovely things
and one of those lovely things will be listed in my shop soon
(photos and packaging still to do)
I am hoping to tempt her into doing a guest blog post about it
what do you think?....she says she is too shy
I told her how lovely you guys are
I have an appointment for an MRI scan later today, on my back
not looking forward to being stuck in a tube
I’m not good in enclosed spaces
I will have to get my mind calm and pretend to be elsewhere
perhaps in the fairytale wood
yes that's where I'll be.
It's typical really, but my back has been feeling quite good lately
I feel like a fraud.
As always...thank you thank you thank you for your comments
I just love reading them
