So, I created my new special place on the weekend.
We have a little patio out the front that is sheltered from the road and the afternoon sun by a large, old camellia tree. The little garden was full of weeds and beyond that was the view of the neighbour’s wall but I could see it had potential.
I cleaned out the garden and planted some plants that will help to screen the brick wall and offer additional privacy.
A bit of a sweep and some tables and chairs and voila! A lovely area to sit back with a cup of tea and watch the world go by.
I was so inspired by my work that I decided to start a new project. I thought I would do a granny squares blanket for Miss Berry’s bed for winter. Granny Squares are perfectly portable and I can sit outside in the afternoon and crochet without worrying about getting my work dirty. What a great way to relax and unwind!
