What a busy week! The weather is gorgeous here and the town has been packed with visitors which means the charity shop has been exceptionally busy. I was on my own front of house on Wednesday and I didn't stop all afternoon, it was great!
When my parents came to visit last week they gave me some plants. A mahonia and a bright green thing I don't know the name of for in our shade bed, plus some hostas to pad out the shade bed. The hostas came in these two shallow pots. They didn't want the pots back and they are exactly what I needed/wanted for the former lawn area. I've taken a few small bits of various alpines and relocated them to the pots, just the job.
We've also been on the lookout for something to hold our prepared salad so it's easy to grab and go. We do have storage containers but the more we're cooking for the freezer the less we have floating around. I spent £3 on this nice divided Pyrex dish from a charity shop this week
I tend to chop enough salad for three days at a time, so this is the ideal size for us, plus we can use it for other things when we're eating less salad later in the year.
The town council newsletter arrived yesterday so I've been able to pencil in a few free events to keep us entertained later in the summer - club day/carnival, the kite festival and the centenary celebration for our local park. If the weather's good it should be a great summer!
