MADE A PILE!

Our beautiful early morning sky

Oh I like my new carpet shampooer;

before





after



You should have seen the colour of the water!....if there's a colour darker than black...well that was the colour;and the pile seems all "springy" now, bet I'll find it harder to push the hoist over it.



This is a photo of it having a little rest after all it's hard work while the rollers dry out.









In celebration of my delight in my new toys I finally sorted that cupboard out





Plenty of floor space for my new vacuum now!















After all my hard work I thought I deserved a stroll round the garden. I always mulch my Peonys up in Autumn but make sure I scrape the mulch away in the Spring as they don't like to be buried too deep.









Little red shoots pushing through already. If we have a very dry Spring I'll pop a gallon of water on them every now and again. Peony flower buds are inclined not to swell and bloom if they get too thirsty early in the season.


I always think that it's a shame that snowdrops droop their heads so much; you really have to get down on your knees to appreciate the beauty of their flowers.

Oh-er! Did you hear my knees creak as I got up! And that "Ugh" sound that suddenly appeared when I was in my thirties is definitely getting LOUDER!

Wonderful what a new vacuum cleaner can do, too
The new recipe is on the blog, had some trouble last night with the internet.

Stay well
