After my last post on crochet flower patterns I thought it would be nice to do one on real flowers. One of the the things that I love about the climate here is that you can grow things without the fear that will perish in the extreme heat. As we are renting the abode in which we live I have been gardening in pots and grow bags, but the results have been good.

Another thing I love about Ireland is that come Summer hanging baskets are placed outside shops, cafes and pubs and virtually everywhere possible. It makes ordinary streets look so pretty.
I hope this has cheered you up if you are not having good weather where you are and maybe think about planting some pots for yourself.
