Hello The weather has cleared a little to enjoy the garden and see that spring is truly on its way. Here are a few pictures taken in my garden for you to enjoy. [caption id="attachment_524" align="alignnone" width="300" caption="My House"][/caption] [caption id="attachment_519" align="alignnone" width="224" caption="Hibiscus"][/caption] [caption id="attachment_521" align="alignnone" width="224" caption="Magnolia"][/caption] [caption id="attachment_522" align="alignnone" width="300" caption="Vereya"][/caption] OOPs not sure what this one is called, I was lucky to be given a cutting of this one and it has turned out a lovely shrub full of colour. Now onto some of the pets. There are some camera shy pets missing, not matter how hard I tried my dog boy was not interested in having his photo taken. ( go figure ) he usually loves attention. [caption id="attachment_525" align="alignnone" width="224" caption="My name is Taka and 'no' I have not been into the biscuit bowl again today."][/caption]   [caption id="attachment_526" align="alignnone" width="224" caption="My name is Yappy and is this my best side."][/caption] [caption id="attachment_527" align="alignnone" width="300" caption="Harriet ( aka Henny Penny )"][/caption] [caption id="attachment_528" align="alignnone" width="224" caption="The cat at he back of the chair is Kitty Kat and she looks a little worried about how much room Taka is taking up."][/caption] I hope you enjoyed my little tour and meeting my pets. Happy Stitching
