Update on my garden and latest Xmas Card

Good Morning Crafters, I know I know Im so lack at writing up posts for this Challenge Blog I dont know about you but there comes a time when you are not quite so enthusiastic as you used to be at keeping these Blogs up to date, Ive rather lost my mojo on it.
But on the whole I have been busy with my No.l blog as I had to carry on with writing up the Challenge blogs for The Paper Shelter and of course Pink Gem Designs, also I had visitors at the beginning of August and now here we are almost into September, where has the year flown to?
Anyway I promised you a update on my fence and the garden in front and Im thrilled to show you its really going well even my forsythia has decided to grow again so before you can say jack robinson know doubt it will be as tall as the fence.

Even the grass is doing well, though with a lot of water and loads of grass seed, mind you hubby has a nasty habit of clipping the roots if he goes mad with the strimmer, I now prefer to use the shears to clip the long pieces. The slop of the grass is very dangerous to be honest and with us both in our 70s its a real hazard when cutting it. At the top on the left is where we keep our bins and last year I managed to get hubby to agree to create a little path so we dont have to balance on the grass to fill the bins and our dog loves to strut along it like lady muck, not sure why but she does make us laugh, shes patrolling her domain.
Here is a photo of my fushia's which are also my delight, I do love to see all the colours I hope you like them to.

I was rather surprised at how well they survived the very cold winter we had at the beginning of the year but luckily they did so did the front ones to.
I think its time now to show you the latest Xmas cards I created a few weeks ago, I have been busy with others but never got around to actually photoing them.

These are both created with Chloes stamps and I actually coloured them both with my pencils.
These cards are to be entered in the following Challenges:-
