My rose has started to bloom. It is a lot redder than it looks in the pictures. I am just shocked that it hasn't died lol hmmm maybe the curse of the black thumb of death is broken? (nah probably not considering John has been taking care of this most of the time ;) )
And I did get time today to draw a sketch for the virtual sketch. I wish I had have had more time to work on this, but been so busy cleaning up the flat. Just a quick simple sketch on plain sketchbook paper. I would have loved to use my Inktense pencil as the colours are so bright. I have dozens of pictures of these lilies so I can always use the pencils in the future. Go look at the other sketches that people have done :D
The hedge that was in the backyard of the flat has been cut so that its less than a foot tall. We now have a lot of light getting into the kitchen. Just need to put up a simple fence now. The neighbours seems like nice people. So things are going well with that and the decorating is really starting to change the whole place. We took pictures almost everyday we were all working on the flat so once we are done I will post a few so people can see how much work John's family has helped us with. We really need to think of something to do for all of them to thank them for the help.
Pouring down rain right now, so can't really do any gardening. Guess I should be packing :p
