Green & Black's chocs should help the waistline along nicely! The jug is by Gisela Graham and the sweet pea posy with hand made paperweight is from a piano student.
Virginia Woolf's Garden (from Hubby) I've wanted for a long time (the book, not the garden, although that would be nice!) and On Looking (from one of the Miss Ts), all about observation (as the title suggests) should make an interesting read. Five seedlings from a friend - two purple Alstroemeria and three surprises.
An amazing scented leaf geranium and some 'citrus'-coloured chrysanths. The tree is a Vitex, or Chaste Tree, so called because the potions made from the berries are supposed to have helped monks maintain their vows of chastity. I've never seen or heard of it before, so googled it and when in flower it looks a bit like a budleia.
Out for celebratory dinner last night, which was lovely. Apparently, there are more treats to come: thoroughly spoiled girl.

Some progress on the grey blanket has been made, though now I find myself in the middle of a colour crisis. The original plan was for it to be all grey with a thin bright green border, but I've deviated. I thought I'd try to break it up with two rows of double crochet two or three times and I like the idea, just not sure whether the bright green is the right colour to use - it is really (neon) bright.
I might have to put it on the back burner for a couple of days and switch to another WIP, of which there are many: my current WIP count is eight, but I'm sure there are plenty out there who can top that ;o)
Hope all is well out there ...
