It's really difficult to believe that, with the horrible cold winds and rain we've just suffered, that we will really be able to go camping very soon...but the dogs are ready & every time we do a bit of camper-van sorting they get in and look hopeful! The trees have greened up, the May blossom is out, and the Stinging Nettles have shot up in many more places in our wild garden than I would want - so time also to tame the nettles! I want a good patch for butterflies, but not a complete takeover! We have a courtyard wild garden with paving and planted areas, but no lawn - though the grass grows very well between the paving slabs - more to tame!!
We have lots of Forget-me-nots self sown, which inspire me to make some brooches with my Lucite flowers to look like lovely little Foreget-me-nots - and I'd love to manage some simple daisy shap
I am Sue-Jane Barton - retired from running our Cottage Industry of making cakes to sell - so I supposedly have lots more time to do my jewellery - although it amazing how busy the days are with everything else! Andy and I live here in North Somerset with our two terriers - and we all love going off exploring Great Britain in our camper-van. I take my beads with me very often - and can be spotted sitting outside the van making jewellery - and hoping not to lose beads in the grass!!
