Summer/Autumn 2014

Hi people! Have not been on my computer for a long time, way too busy! The summer has been so amazing, so hot that in July it started to feel a bit different, the trees started to change colour a bit. I have loved the hot weather & became really used to it. Everything has just […]

Summer!

I have been so busy these last few months that I have not had a chance to update my blog, naughty me! The gardens are all looking so plentiful, my veg patch is doing well, I have already had some peas, lettuce, radish & strawberries. Just waiting on the potatoes now & lovely runner beans. […]

Seed Sowing

Today I have been digging over my veg patch at home & sowing seeds, today I sowed Lettuce, Spring Onions, Carrots & Parsnips. All was going well until my Labrador walked all over them! He has a bad paw so I will let him off this time! It was so nice to be out there […]

Spring is in the air

Oh my, how lovely to finally see some beautiful sunshine! How it makes everything look so much better. I was at a customers house on Monday & they have a lovely naturalised part of the garden full of Crocus, I had to take a picture, so I will add that later. The Spring flowers have […]

Please let Spring arrive early

Some of the late summer flowers are still looking great though like Perovskia ‘Blue Spire’ ( Russian Sage), Rudbeckia, Echinacaea, Lavenders, all still looking great. Soon the leaves will be start to fall, in the mean time the […]

Summer Gardens

Well summer is well and truly amongst us! The extreme heat has made everything flower & then fade very quickly, so lots of dead heading has been happening in peoples gardens. I think it is starting to feel Autumnal, the Liquidambar trees are starting to turn burgundy & the annual bedding plants are turning to […]

Phew! Melting in the heat here, but loving it all the same. I wanted to plant out in my own garden today but I am gonna have to wait till later to cool down before I do that! Haven’t written anything on my blog for a while, just been so busy. I did go to […]
