Bloomin' Lovely!!!

Good morning.
Bright and early start for me today so that I can get out in the garden and enjoy some more of this glorious sunshine - well we don't get it very often so let's make the most if it :o)

Yesterday I had a lovely visit from my snuggalicious Grand-daughter Ruby Mae who is now the grand old age of 6 weeks :o)
I know I'm biased but isn't she 'Bloomin' Lovely'!!!
And no wonder - here are her equally lovely parents striking a pose on my sun deck :o)

Anyway onto my share for today I made for my MiL - one of 3 I made for her friend that celebrated her 80th birthday earlier this year:
