Bear with …

Good morning!

I hope you are fine and well on this rather humid Thursday (and it’s still early!).  I’m popping in to tell you that I am in the process of transferring my blog posts over to my new platform this week and in the immortal words of Captain Oates, “I may be some time”.

So, this is just to tell you not to worry, the blog isn’t going anywhere, everything will stay online until it’s all absolutely ready to be moved so if you’re in the middle of knitting socks then the Sockalong tutorials won’t vanish on you.  After this post, though, I probably won’t post again until I’ve moved bloggy house (unless it all goes horribly wrong and takes even longer than I expect), so I’ll see you on the other side!

And just because I can, here are some photos from the garden this morning.  Oh my, I don’t know if it’s the weather or because I did a lot of work in the garden earlier in the year, but I am so happy with how my borders are filling out this year!

See you soon! xxx

    Beautiful pics of a beautiful garden! Well done you. Good luck with the move. I hope in the end it's a case of "To infinity and beyond," and not "Computer says no!" Can't wait to see the new space. xx

    Your garden looks wonderful! We have friends in Birmingham who have the same gorgeous pink poppies!! Only Welsh Poppies in our garden in Surrey – but we are awash with them! Here's hoping the bloggy move goes well!! Have a very good weekend!

      I think the poppies are called 'Patty' s Plum'. Xx

      Welsh poppies are so lovely though! The poppies are called Coral Reef and I grew those from seed so I am always delighted to see them back each year. I do have a Patty's Plum and it's darker pink; it's also a lovely colour! xx

      I definitely did more prep work this year and it's certainly paid off! I quite enjoy the tech things and hopefully this won't be too much of a faff! xx
