Last week-end  Little One was sick with high fever. I had sleepless nights. He is getting better now but we still keep him at home; he is happy that there is no school…. When he started to feel better ,we went out in the garden and I had a chance to take a few photos. Here is our home at number 24:

Last year we had pigeons chosing  our window-sill to build their nest on. This year we have them too and I have managed to photograph the baby pigeons

And not only these! we have other guests as well

Last week-end ,we had some showers as well so everything looks fresh

And we had harvest scenes like this

Ok. And I had very little time to crochet but I have a WIP

I hope you all have a very lovely week…

purple monday

Last Saturday I went shopping…

I gifted myself a lovely bouquet of flowers…

My crochet corner looks like this:

Especially the white bloomed flowers ( I think they are Matthiola incana- double-flowered stock ) are sooooo fragrant.

After the shopping ,I made a  new arrangement with my purple carnations since now, I owned a purple vase.

This lovely vase and these lovely carnations inspired me to crochet a purple coloured throw. Slowly I am forming an idea in my head then I will put in practice.( Only I do not know when because I haven’t yet finished my current project;it is taking such a long time!!!)

Hopefully,my next post will be about mu finished blanket project.Until then..

finally the summer is over!

Summers in Cyprus are very hot with temperatures reaching 40 degrees C and above. This makes growing anything in your garden almost impossible ; I only concentrate on not letting the plants to die.But now that it is September, the temperatures are lower and my garden started to look better…It is loaded with pinks,reds,oranges and yellows.The jasmine near the entrance door is so fragrant, I feel so happy when I go back home at night ,tired from work, and be welcomed by such nice fragrances.

And I started an easy granny square blanket project. I aim to finish it in a week.We’ll see…
