Garden Hands

7 May

I like to potter in my garden and I am finally seeing some results with fruits for my labour.   I also have a lovely pair of gloves to protect my hands, however I’m all fingers and thumbs when wearing them, so apart from when touching yucky stuff, I usually ditch the gloves.

Ditching the gloves causes dirty, rough hands which is a problem of a night when I like to indulge in my other hobbies of knitting, crochet and embroidery.  There  is nothing more annoying than thread catching on rough skin.

My solution is a home made hand scrub.  I made a batch today to share with some friends this Thursday.  If you would like a copy of my recipe leave me a message in the comments.

Kaffir Lime

17 Feb

My 2016 Christmas present from my DS was a Kaffir Lime Tree.  I have lovingly planted in it’s pot and tending as best I know how.  Of course since I added this baby to my collection we have had all sorts of weather ranging from scorching hot to bitterly cold and winds strong enough to blow trees down.

I am rather pleased to see the tree is sprouting new leaves.

Even better, there was a happy dance the garden when I noticed that it’s flowering.
