Photo Challenge – August 24th to 30th

24th – All the new school clothes arrived from Tesco. I now have to iron in all the labels (never again will I be buying sew in labels!) and get them all organised and put away.
25th – We took Jamie and Damien (the grandchildren) to Whisby Nature Reserve and Daisy Made Ice Cream along with their dad, Jason and his girlfriend Gemma. We had a lovely afternoon and you can see the rest of the photos here ๐Ÿ™‚
26th – I bought this Lantana a few weeks ago and a couple of days later all the petals had fallen off the flowers. I figured I’d bought it at the end of it’s flowering season but after being flowerless for a few weeks, it started blooming again ๐Ÿ™‚
27th – We had the boys again on Tuesday while Jason went for a job interview. We took them to Hartsholme Park and you can find more photos here ๐Ÿ™‚
28th – The girls sowed some seeds in the pots they bought me for my birthday. We forgot to label them so now we have no idea what they are but we’re very happy to see some growth!
29th – Last year my father-in-law bought me an orchid for my birthday. It flowers for months at a time and when it had finished flowering I cut it back as per instructions on you tube. It grew a new stalk earlier this year with new flower buds; Ant, trying to be helpful, tried to clip it onto the wooden support and ended up snapping it off.
I was really upset because I thought that was it for this year but instead of not flowering, it started growing 3 new stalks and now has open flowers and loads of buds waiting to open ๐Ÿ™‚
30th – I have a bit of an obsession with the toastie machine at the moment! It’s been in the cupboard for years, forgotten about until Kaycee saw it and asked for a magic sandwich. Since then it’s been used everyday! My favourite filling at the moment is cheese, ham and salsa. It’s delicious!

    I love orchids, yet can't get any to grow in the house we've lived in for eight years.

    Thanks for linking up to Project 365.

    I love your happy froggy plant pot – so cheerful. Good luck with the labelling – it's a thankless task isn't it?
