It has been such a lovely day today, I had a little tidy up in the garden, little being the operative word because we only have a postage stamp for a garden now. 

Earlier in the year I blogged about the new border I had put in and thought you might like to see how it is coming along.

It is beginning to fill out and the plants are establishing themselves nicely.

Our little veggie/salad plot is producing well although the birds have had all the Blueberries off the bush, pesky blighters they have not left one!!!  Mind you the Plum tree from next door is ful to bursting with Plums, I wonder how M & J our neighbours would feel if we scrumped some later in the year.

As it was such a nice day I decided it was to good too sit inside and craft so I took myself and my tools off into the garden to work on some Alice In Wonderland tags for my Etsy shop. 

This was not one of my better ideas as I felt just like Alice did chasing after the white rabbit as I chased bits of paper around the garden every time the wind blew up, digging paper tags out of the cracks in the decking, peering down holes.... 

After time I did manage to complete some and have packed them up and they are ready to go into my Etsy shop.

Later in the afternoon my neighbour from the residential home next door poked his head around the gate and in his hands he had a gift for us.  Being next to a residential home for boys to some people would  be a problem, we don't have one, in fact the boys treat us with respect and always say hello or if their football comes over they always ask "Can we get our ball back mister", the staff are great and they are good neighbours to have.  "I just thought you might like this" he said
Like it - it is the most wonderful huge hanging basket and he even came complete with a bracket to hang it up with, needless to say I set Hubby to the task of getting it up on the wall.

Thank you neighbour!!!!
