I wanted to have another go at growing tomatoes this year and also some courgettes, so yesterday we went to the garden centre to buy plants and grow bags.
While we were there Mark saw some pepper plants and decided that he wanted some of those too, this wouldn't be too strange except for the fact that he has not the slightest interest in what goes on in the garden, he will help if I ask but if I don't he is quite happy to let me get on with it.
He will probably forget all about them by next weekend, and to be honest he is away all week so the watering and feeding will fall to me.
Apart from these additions nothing much has changed in the garden this week, everything just seems later this year.
I do have my first rose though, I noticed it yesterday, there are many more buds so perhaps next week more will open.
The only stitching I've done this week is on my Hands On Design Seasons in Chalk Art. I really would like to get this one done before the end of the month so I can display it for the Summer.
On Wednesday I picked Oliver up from school and we went to Stourport and had a picnic tea by the river.
The weather was lovely, he ran off some of his never ending energy in the park and we had a walk along the river and of course when he knew the arcade was open in the fair we had to go and have a look
Stourport was always a magnet to anyone in the Midlands in the summer with it being only about a 20 minute drive and having a seaside feel without actually being by the sea. It's quite pleasant by the river and there was always the attraction of the permanent fairground for the kids. There is now an enclosed children's park one side of the bridge and the fairground is still there on the other side of the bridge.
I think we both had a lovely time although Oliver was disappointed that none of the ice cream booths were open, oh dear, you can't have everything, lol
I hope you have a lovely week and If you are in the UK, a lovely Bank Holiday tomorrow :-)
