Photo Challenge – May 11th – May 17th

11th – I think, although I’m not 100% sure that this a wallflower. I bought a pack of assorted plug plants last year with some birthday money and I forgot to label them all so I totally forgot what these were called. The other day someone mentioned wallflowers on the tv and my first thought was that it sounded familiar and maybe those plants in the garden were wallflowers.
I’ve Googled them and they do look very similar but for now, that’s the only flower I have and it’s missing petals now after the strong winds from the other day so it’s a bit hard to tell. I’ll check again when I get more flowers.

12th – This is another plant that I forgot to label and I planted it 2 or 3 years ago now so I have no chance of remembering what it’s called but I love the dark pink colour.

13th – I haven’t done any cross stitch for years and started looking for a kit on Amazon the other week after I suddenly had the urge to sew!
I don’t remember the kits being so expensive and I decided against it for now but then my mother in law mentioned that she’d had one as a gift and she didn’t want to do it so I offered to do it for her.
I’ve never worked on a printed one before, I’ve always worked from a chart but I have to admit, it’s a lot easier doing it on printed fabric!

14th – I treated myself to a black coffee and some chocolate after losing another 2 and a half pounds at Slimming World today 🙂

15th – Ella recently started piano lessons on a Friday afternoon at school and here she is practising at home 🙂

16th – We’ve got a house guest for a few days and the girls don’t want to let her go home….again!
They both love Chi-Chi and always love it when she comes to stay 🙂

17th – It’s my nephew’s 6th birthday today and he wanted a pool table cake. I used sweets for the balls because I didn’t have time to make lifelike pool balls. Jake didn’t complain, he loved it 🙂

    I love that cake it looks so good and I bet your nephew was chuffed to bits with it
    I found some new plants in my garden this week too and turned to Instagram for some help as to what they were! Your cross stitch looks pretty – I have never tried that x

    That cake is astoundingly good, well done. I also love the water on the wallflower too.

    Thanks for linking up to Project 365.

    That cake is awesome! The first flower is definitely a wallflower (and it looks lovely), not so sure about the second – looks a bit like salvia but I think it's too early in the year for them?!
