Almost the Weekend!


Well here we are again at almost another weekend. I bet you can guess what I will be doing? Yep, your right... planting some geraniums. Every year I buy my geraniums in these tiny pots. It is a whole lot less expensive than buying them full grown. With some tender loving care and a really good fertilizer they will be big and blooming in no time at all. I buy them this way every year. When you need sixty of them like I do that is the only way to go. I am only going to be planting them in the front porch patio boxes as it is still a bit to cool to plant them in the garden yet. The rest of them will stay put in the sun on the front porch waiting their turn to be planted. I have been meaning to make a knitting needle case for sometime now. Well today was the day as I felt like sewing more than I did knitting. I am very pleased with how it turned out and it came together in no time at all. I think these would be good to make in different sizes. Great for keeping crochet hooks safe.

Well I am off to start the weekend. I hope that whatever you are doing it will be a fun one.

See you next week!

That bag is just gorgeous. I really love it! And 60 Geraniums are going to be soo beautiful. I love the bright red ones-- They make me think of Mediterranean outside steps. Have a great weekend.

I've spent the whole day in the garden today. The weather is lovely over here at the moment. I very much doubt if I shall have geraniums in my garden this year. I daresay I shall be over to look at yours! I am very impressed with the knitting needle case. Your work is just so neat. Have a great weekend. x

Those geranium plants look nice and healthy. I often buy geranium plants grown from seeds. But I can't even think of planting anything until the third week of May. We could have frost until that time.

That case is gorgeous, Kathy! It looks beatiufully made.
Hope the geraniums went in okay. I also buy baby plants. It's so much cheaper, you can appreciate the results, and it doesn't matter if the plant doesn't 'take off'. We think alike :)

Geramiums always remind me of my grandmother who used to plant them in tacky concrete pots that had once been painted white but now wore very little of that original decoration. I have never managed to bring myself to grow them...
