A lovely sock monkey; isn't she cute? Handmade notecards, decorated clothes pegs, a zippered pouch, a hair slide decorated with lilac flowers and also buttons! Such a lot of loveliness.
Later in the day we had 50 sheep delivered who will be staying with us for a while to keep the grass down
Later on, my husband decided to take me on a little jaunt to the scrapyard - oh yes he knows how to show a girl a good time! He's been gradually filling an old car of our's with other bits of metal we were throwing out (gradually being years) and thought it was time to weigh it in.
Here is the tractor pushing the car onto the trailer
and for anyone who's never been to a scrapyard, here it is being lifted off at the other end. I nearly didn't get this photo as the man on the grabber was so quick!
and onto something more pleasing to the eye, some flowers that are out at the moment
I first saw Zinnias over on Sweet Birdy Love when it was Winter here and Summer over there, and I thought I would sow some this year. I'm really pleased with them because each individual flower lasts for ages and ages. Some of these flowers have been out since July!
