June! Where Did It Go?

Hello folks!

Nice to see you again. 
 I'm alive and just about kicking.  School has been hectic, and there's so many things to get done before the end of term.  Stop the world I need to get off.  June was upon me and went before I knew it.   Phew!

So, the news in brief from Clicky Needles' Towers.
 DD has managed to get a part-time job in Tesco after many rejections which she found really hard.  
DS is still growing exponentially.  
The Blue Tits fledged from the nest box four chicks I think.
The British and Irish Lions won their tour (yaaaaaaaaay!)
Sam Warburton isn't giving up the trophy.

Andy Murray won Wimbledon (yaaaaaaaaay!)
The sun is scorching (yaaaaaaaaay!)

I've found some curtains in Dunelm which go really well in our living room. 
I'm soooo pleased.
The garden is looking colourful, although if I'm totally honest with you a bit overgrown too!  I'm going to tackle it today when it's a bit cooler.
I love these geraniums, but they seed all over, so some are going to come out.
The alliums have been magnificent, they didn't flower last year (weather) and I thought I'd lost them.
These are the size of footballs.
 I love the delicate colour of this cistus.
More aqueligias.
Pretty astrantia. 
I've not been knitting much, this is it.  Not looking very exciting at the moment, maybe next time I can show you a finished object!
The dog has settled into our family life really well.
We have the production of 'The Wind in the Willows' at school next week, I've helped with props and the backdrop which I'll show you next time.

Right, I've got a cup of tea ready and I'm off to read your blogs which I've really missed.  They too, seemed to have dropped into the abyss that was June.

As always have fun.......................Clicky Needles.


  1. Our alliums disappeared last year too. So glad to see them this year again. Looks like you have a similar mix of plants in your garden to us, I like!

  2. Oh my goodness so much going on. I enjoyed catching up with you.

  3. You've been very busy! Same here.. I love the flowers in your garden! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  4. I wish my garden looked so pretty when it is over grown,

  5. I love your plants and garden. My garden is looking ok but a bit neglected - haven't had time to pot up my tubs this year which is a shame :(

    Enjoy the sunny weather!


  6. Same here with the Alliums, back with a flourish now though, dead Poppies too.

  7. Since I was out of state all June, I can appreciate your busyness :) I love the curtains that moved into your home, and enjoyed seeing your pretty flowers...and I love that your garden is overgrown because mine has huge bare if we could just exchange a a bit with each other... :)
