After it finished flowering over a year ago I just chucked it in the garden. Didn't do anything with it until I tidied that patch of the garden, I just tidied it up by cutting of the shrivelled stork and cut the leaves off and tucked it in a corner. I spotted a bud in the rain the other day.

My friend asked me if I could recover her bar stools and make some cushion covers too. She provided the fabric, there was loads left and knowing she liked Seagulls I asked her if she would like a cushion with a Seagull.
The pattern for the seagull is from Bustle & Sew magazine. You can also get to Bustle & Sew by clicking on the picture on my sidebar too.

From this at the beginning of January
Just got to keep the weeds down and hope the plants spread! At least we are not plagued by the Welsh Leek in the back like we are in the front. I have more plants in pots which are dotted about the garden to put in.....

Is Midsummer Day
Is the Longest Day
My 35th Wedding Anniversary
To celebrate I made some shortbread
Easy recipe to make, I make in ounces, because that is the way I was taught to remember it and make it, and besides it really doesn't sound right in grams!
2, 4, 6 Shortbread
2 ozs Sugar (50grms)
4 ozs Butter (110gms)
6 ozs Flour (170grms)
Put all the ingredients in a bowl and rub together with finger tips, work well and as the butter melts the ingredients all gather together and the bowl becomes clean.
Place onto a floured surface and roll out about 1/4" thick and using a biscuit cutter cut out shapes and place onto greased baking sheet. Keep doing this until all the mixture has been used up.
Prick the shapes with a fork and cook on 180 degrees, Gas 4 for about 15 minutes.
When cooked take out of the oven, sprinkle with sugar and leave on the baking sheet for about 5 minutes to cool a little.
