Before I post endless pictures of the garden, I had better show at least one recent crochet project. This is a cute baby bonnet I made for a friend, whose baby girl was born last week.
I made it in a DK cotton. I thought cotton would be best for a teeny weeny new born.
I found the pattern on Pinterest. It was a lovely pattern, very easy to follow. It is here. You can add a couple more rows to make it bigger. Once I’d finished, I wished I had. However, it fits! Not for long though.
Any way, the following pictures are more for my benefit than any one else. I’m posting them so I can see how the garden looked in the late summer of 2015! The answer is, messy.
I have always taken pictures of the garden and over the years it has changed quite a lot. The photo’s are a reminder because otherwise I’d assume it always looked the same. It’s easy to forget.
He didn’t mind having a camera poked at him in the slightest.
It never occurred to me before that sunflowers would seed themselves. I said in a previous post that it is because of my dodgy homemade compost. The Hollyhocks are doing surprisingly well but they’re very spindly. Just the white ones arrived.
I’ll be interested to look back on these in a year or two. I hope to make some changes to the planting but need to have a think.
The Honeysuckle had it’s best year so far. Lots of flowers appeared. We hacked it back to just a few inches last year. Did the trick.
I could have taken some pictures of a different area of the g arden I suppose. Um, Maybe the tatty looking veg patches. Everything is coming to an end.
I have been busy crafting and taking too many pictures. So many, that sorting through them has been blah. So this post is a bit of a filler really. I will be getting my bum in gear and doing some more crafty business in the next couple of weeks.

What a cute little bonnet. All of my friends have had their babies now and I really miss making hats and pram blankets for them. Your garden still looks beautiful 🙂
This is the first baby to come along in a while. Not sure when I’ll next be making baby stuff either. Always did fancy making a bonnet. Not for myself though.
Not unless you are going for the Little House on the Prairie look 🙂
I could totally pull off that look!
Your garden looks so pretty. I love seeing a baby in a little bonnet 🙂 x
thank you!. I’m not sure if babies really need hats but they do look cute.
This is so lovely as is, but maybe lace trim around the face opening? Great great job!
Thanks. Broderie Anglais maybe. But It does fit without and it looks lovely on a teeny baby.
