Gyllyngdune Gardens, Gylly Beach and New Knitting

19 Mar

1  Today after a wonderful singing session, we went for a walk along Cliff Road to Gyllyndune Gardens where there were many treasures to be found.  Daffodils, Primroses and a few blue hyacinths lined the paths and on the side of the quarry garden were perched some tiny little houses – very quaint and charming.  For the first time I noticed a fountain made of copper shells and the Mesembryanthemum were just stunning in the sunshine.

2   The Osteospermum on the cliff side overlooking Gylly Beach were glowing in the sunshine.

3   The project that I started in the beautiful Mandarin cotton and silk mix was a disaster! I was attempting a pattern using the wrong yarn and yesterday, I pulled it all out, went to my favourite wool shop and bought a pattern to suit the yarn – a much better idea. Now, in due course Grandbaby B will be getting a pretty cardigan!

    The tiny houses, for me, simply powerful and magical. Looking at the image, am waiting for a little woman to jump out from behind a stone and quiz the giant intruder as to it’s intention.

    Your flowery cliff. Well, I looked out my window and I all saw was brownish grey decay, melting ugly snow and patches of mud. I’ve seen the magic you can create from mandarin yarn, so could you possibly knit us a spring just like yours, flowers and all, for over here. We need something to tide us over to the real Spring arrives.

      We were entranced by them and did wonder how on earth they got there – it’s a sheer side to the quarry.
      I would love to knit you a Spring but it would be winter again before it was finished. I’ll keep sending you Spring photos though! 🙂
