This and That

Hello Everyone,

No card to share with you today,  but I've been snapping away with my camera over the past few days.



A beautiful  bunch of flowers from my Sister-in-Law.
 love, love  the cabbage flowers in the background.


A little visitor to the garden.




I took these photos early this morning 
during my walk/run. 


Three yellows I am using for my latest crochet blanket.



The almost finished Yellow squares, and then my last colour Green.
Now my favourite part -  joining  them  together.


Enjoy the rest of your week end, I hope the weather is good for you.
