About Me

My photo
My name's Alison but for reasons too long to go into I'm known as Cockney Blonde or CB for short. I've been rubber stamping for several years but now spend most of my time either knitting or crocheting. However, with the advent of a New Year I have bitten the bullet and am tackling my usually hated pastime of sewing. I've even bought 'Sewing for Dummies' to guide me on my way. I've been with my hubby Dave for 24 years and between us we have 4 kids and 5 grandkids. We also have 2 cats and a dog, the latter features as my 'photo' image. I used to be able to blog daily but these days I struggle to blog weekly. Hopefully now we are settled into our new home in the country, I can get back to a daily (well almost) update from the room I now have to share with hubby. No more personal crafting space for me!!! Thanks to all the blogs and sites I follow for all your brilliant inspiration, and thank you to everyone who finds the time to comment on my blog.

Hanging Baskets

I did have a card ready to upload and then my camera died....well, the battery went flat. So that's now on charge and you'll have to wait until the morning for the card.

So in the meantime I thought I'd share a couple of photos of my beautiful hanging baskets.
The top one was planted by my son, Mark. Mark has many problems, learning and health, including Aspergers. Twice a week he attends a Garden Centre through Social Services which he absolutely loves. The bottom basket I bought from the Centre and the following week he took in an empty container and potted up the one above by himself. They are giving such a brilliant display of colour.
I've taken some more photos, for Mark, of other containers he's planted up and also his thriving veggie garden which I'll share with you soon.
In the meantime, enjoy the flowers, x

  1. They are fabulous.. well done Mark! I bought special hanging basket plants from B&Q and they sold me a tray of weeds amongst them. I watched them sprouting upwards and upwards and ended up pulling them out at over 2 feet tall. Next year tell me if Mark is taking orders!!!
