GROWING MOSS

Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good, His love endures forever.  
Psalm 107:1
Christmas shopping

The weather is very cool today. Apparently this is the coldest beginning to summer in over 50 years. I don't mind. I love the spring weather (although autumn is my favorite) so I am happy for the coolness of spring to continue a bit longer.


Christmas decorating

Daughter J is a sculptor. She created the small white sculpture under the cloche on the left, and she also gave me the snow-globe  on the right. You can change the picture in the snow-globe.




These were added to my sideboard with the nativity scenes and a few glass,silver and gold balls.



I tried a couple of runners but didn't have just the right one so I shall have a look in the shops tomorrow. I think some tall candles may be in order also.



In the garden

A bit of rearranging in the garden yesterday led me to look closely  at this giant pitcher as I moved it.


 I was delighted to see moss growing on it.


I love the way the moss is following the pattern. This pitcher and stand used to be quite a bright, light blue, but I am rather pleased at the way they are weathering. I hope moving them to a new position won't inhibit the moss growth.

This morning there was a spider web in my letterbox. I am surprised with all the junk mail that comes every day at this time of year that there was time for a spider to spin a web.



The poor spider won't have his web there for very long.

There are several types of webs
  • Spiral orb webs,
  • Tangle webs or cobwebs
  • Funnel webs
  • Tubular webs, which run up the bases of trees or along the ground
  • Sheet webs
  • Dome or tent webs
After some brief research I  have ascertained that this is a sheet web.

Work in progress

I have just about finished the crocheting of the elephant But I have stuffed some of it and am not quite sure how it is going to look.

I have stitched the head and body together.This is my second go at the trunk. It is a bit tricky.


Interesting sites

 This resort is worth a look. I would be very worried about waves coming up, but with the lavish huts they must be pretty sure of the water. Click here to see some beautiful and interesting pictures.
