Knitting and a Walk in the Garden


Our Pickles the Cat test knit is moving along nicely and his pattern will be available soon, I’ve cast on an algae green pickles and have joined in the test knit myself. It’s a lot of fun, if you’d like to pop in onto the thread and say hi and chat go here.

Perennial Basil

My mom-in-law grew this Perennial Basil for me from a slip, I swear she has green-fingers… It’s the most divine plant, attracting bees and insects for many months of the year.





I have started growing wheatgrass for wheatgrass shots, sssh don’t tell the kids, they are really not keen on drinking it, I think I’ll juice some apple to take the edge off the taste.


This squash vine self-seeded and is doing very well in my window box outside my kitchen window, in winter, I might add, what a determined little plant.

Hope your day is lovely.

    Pickles looks to be an interesting color for a cat, but what an apt name! All of your photos are so lovely.

    Our squash are looking very much like yours, but here it’s the hight of summer! You must get such mild winters. That perennial basil looks wonderful, can you eat it?

      Hi Emma!
      Our winters are pretty mild, we haven’t had any frost this season, we do eat the basil, it’s wonderful.

    Dear Linda,
    I have enjoyed reading about your life in Africa. I live in Indiana, USA. Would you happen to have a snood pattern or can you make one? These are the things to wear over your hair. Also I am looking for an easy rope sandal pattern. Thanks for answering. Have a good day.
