I thought I would stop by tonight and show you my amaryllis flowers.
Who would have thought that from just one bulb such a beauty would bloom!
I love the colour, so delicate
It's very hard to show you, but there are 4 flowers on this one stem
The second stem is catching up, I wonder how many flowers will be on this one?
I've really enjoyed watching this grow,
I will definitely be planting more next year.
Not a lot of anything crafty to show this week, February's stitching has got off to slow start, see, I knew I shouldn't plan! I've started knitting a cardigan for one of the girls at work who is expecting, she has asked me to knit her a blanket, which I was very pleased about but she is waiting for her gender scan to choose colours.
I've been trying to go for a walk in the afternoons when I can, my back is still quite sore, sitting is more uncomfortable than standing or walking, and I could do with the exercise,:-0
Today I went in the direction of a little church which is a few hundred yards from us, St Peter's. I took these on my phone today, it was quite overcast but I think you can get an idea of what a pretty little church and well kept church yard it is.
There are so many churches boarded up, but this one is still in use, there are always lots of cars at the weekend
I loved the door, see how worn the stone faces are either side?
Next time I will have a look to see if there is a date.
Some of the graves were very old and the inscriptions were hard to read.
I like to read the inscriptions, some of them are so very very sad, but I find it interesting and not in the slightest bit morbid, what do you think?
I noticed that I have some new followers, which is lovely :-) Thank you for choosing to follow me. Deb, even went back through my previous posts and left some lovely comments thank you Deb! (pop over and see her amaryllis, it's a beauty :-)
I hope that new followers will return often and perhaps leave a comment sometime so that I can return the favour :-)
Have a good rest of the week
See you soon
