Go gardening

OH, i just love the colour of this vintage watering can . Spring gardening stuff is in the shop and now we have the weather to go with it! I love this time of year , lots to do but early morning bird song and light nights encourage us to get out there! So pop on those wellies and plant and sow for future colour.

Spring in the garden

I love this bright lime coloured Euphorbia, for the vase - sear the ends , dip n boiling water, then rest in cold water.

Narcissus `Thalia` has a slight scent , lovely in a vase or bouquet.

Lovely to be working in the garden , this Honesty looks lovely in the dappled light.

perfume fills the air

Lovely scents in the garden with these richly coloured hyacinths called `woodstock`
Lots in pots look fantastic.
