So tired ...

Roasting hot and sunny today so we made our way (along with the rest of Glasgow) to the garden centre to spend a fortune and prettify our little bit o'land.

Everything now hurts and it's an effort to lift my arms up to the keyboard - but they look pretty and summery and we are pleased with our efforts (except for my back, which isn't pleased, but instead is quite angry at all this unexpected activity)

Anyone know what these little yellow ones are and how we care for them? They began with an 's' and ended with a 'via' but the box had no instructions - they must have fell off somewhere.

In fact, if anyone knows anything about how to keep any of these flowers alive it would be great if you could pass on tips in the comments box or at mail [at]

Lovely pics taken by the boy :-)

PS Central Park Hoodie is complete - just waiting for some buttons and the opportunity to photograph - watch this space. I promise to try and not leave it so long next time.
