Easter Holidays

Hi there!

School had broken up and we have two weeks off.  Easter holidays are the perfect length of time, time to relax and time to get stuff done.  I have a mental list of things I want to do, the usuals, gardening, painting, sorting and of course, knitting, sewing and crochet.

The weather is very spring-like, one day rainy nastiness, one day sunshine.  On the sun shiny days Tipper the dog sits by the door and whines, and when he been let out, finds the sunniest spot outside soaking it up.
Yesterday when Mr Clicky took Tipper for a walk it started to rain, which turned quickly into a hail storm.  The dog turned around and headed for home followed by Mr Clicky.

Miss Clicky bought me two little pots of bulbs for Mother's Day.
One of my favourite, Iris Reticulata 
and Tete-a-Tete Narcissus.
She's also brought some bargain pineapples home from work (25p!) and I thought I'd have a go at growing them.  I've never managed it in the past so I had a quick google.  Apparently you need to twist the top off before you cut your pineapple up.  This leaves a good bit of stalk, strip off the bottom leaves and then suspend over water.

After a little bit roots appear.
 I've now potted it up into compost.  It doesn't look pretty now I've cut the dead leaves off and there is only one left but I am hopeful that one day it will look like a pineapple.
That's me for now, I'm putting a big effort in my current cardigan so you never know..............

See you soon... Clicky Needles.

  1. I'm very impressed with the growing pineapple, I've heard it can be done but I've never seen it before. I hope it does well. Gorgeous Mother's Day flowers, lucky you.

  2. I like the idea of having a pineapple plant, but I may be at the maximum houseplant number before they run us out of house and home. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
