A Finish...and Garden snapshots!

Finally finished Leanne Beasleys project from last Saturdays Gathering. I always avoided doing Satin Stitch, but had a go and really enjoyed it! I used pekinese stitch instead of chain stitch. Just love Rosalies fabrics! I love to get out in the garden with the camera. This is the first rose thats flowered. They are a bit late, but they were also transplanted from another spot in the garden. I have to move a rose this weekend, thats in the way of where the verandah post has to go...which I hate doing, as they are looking really healthy at the moment!
I love bottlebrush and have quite a few different colours.

This is one side of my 'buff beauty' weeping rose.


And the virgilia(I think?) is covered in blossom and arching quite nicely over the driveway!



I plan to get out in the garden today for a tidy up! Its such a gorgeous day here at the moment. Hope your all having a great day!
