leaving this garden

soon this place wont exist. 

it will be razed to the ground. so in the next couple of days before we leave i want to capture some of the beauty of this lovely deep garden so ill be able to look back. not something i like doing usually. i prefer forward. the mr is the one who looks backward.
there are still some plants that i will be saving from the rubbish pile. as many as i can fit in the van in the last load on the final day.

ive been living in the laundry.
since the horticulture course began all i have been seeming to achieve is not keeping up with the washing with a bit of dishes thrown in.
but me being me ive managed to make this laundry life eventful anyway.

having the couch potato sick for five long weeks with multi bugs meant night sweats where he would go through all the linen in the house in a repetitive three day turn around. and even though he is nearly eighteen all he wanted was company for movie watching and cuddles. then one night while i was at the other end of the house looking at new places to rent (im well. and. truly. over. realestate.com) the laundry flooded and i was forced to wash everything right there and then even though it was raining big time cos id gotten to the stage of throwing things on the floor closing the door and walking away.  

then there was the day i decided that washing a vintage feather pillow was a good idea, you know, to decontaminate it from all the sickness in the house. well...after it burst inside the machine and took me a whole evening to figure out how to deal with, im still vacuuming the drier after each use and have had to throw some darker clothes away. all of this while i should really have been dealing with the packing.
a few feathers still remain floating in and out the door but we are well on our way to having things in boxes by the end of the week and meanwhile i have hit a kind of all time high in the etsy store. 

i thought about having a giveaway for all of you nice people but i just cant right now so ill surprise you one day later on. this time i actually know what im sewing for once instead of having to ask.

we move out in five days! eeep
