A Gift for Gardeners

My mum is a keen gardener, and is very green-fingered, so when gift times roll around, I do consider getting her presents to feed her love of gardening. I’d been looking at hampers for her, but they don’t seem to cater for ‘proper gardeners’. By that I mean most of them tend to be pretty …

Garden Ponderings

I nearly called this post garden ideas, but then that felt a little misleading as I’m not quite at the ‘ideas’ stage. We started Project Garden a couple of summers ago now, and we’ve made plenty of progress. We now have our wildlife garden, we’ve removed a shed and made room for some fruit and a …

My Garden, My Extra Room

Now that the summer months are looming, I am excited to spend time in my extra ‘room’, my garden. Since I’ve got into my gardening, I’ve started to view my garden this way. Before, it was somewhere to sit in the sun, for the kids to play out, for the dog to run around. Having …

A Stroll Round My Garden

It’s been a little while since I’ve shared what’s been happening in my garden here, so I thought that I’d indulge in my ever-growing passion for gardening today and talk plants, flowers and blooms, taking you on a virtual stroll round my garden. Ever since the start of spring, I’ve been obsessing over and noticing …

My Garden in December

Well, here we are at the end of the year, and I’m not quite sure how and when that happened! I’ve enjoyed reflecting on what’s been happening in my garden each month and sharing it in a few shots, too. I’ve captured it through all seasons now, and through all of the work we’ve done …

My Garden in November

I’ve actually been gardening. In November. Yes, I surprised myself, too. I look out my window at the moment and am decidedly uninspired to potter about in the garden. It’s wet and damp and most of the colour has fled. But, a plant delivery that I’d placed back in August arrived, so needs must, and …

My Garden in October

I knew that this would happen now, but it still leaves me feeling a bit sad. I’ve lost my gardening addiction. I’m quite sure it’ll bloom again next spring, but I feel a little bereft without it. I spent last weekend doing a little tidy up, both front and back, but I wasn’t happily humming whilst …

My Garden in September

September already, and the changing season is clear to see when I look out into my garden. The leaves on my tree and acer are turning a beautiful burnt orange colour, and the bright splashes of colour are starting to dwindle. My Japanese anemone’s still going strong.. I love the vibrant colours of my sedum… …

My Garden in August

It’s about time I share what’s happening out in my garden this month. With the weather turning cooler, we haven’t been out there as much, and I am missing it. I’m not as on top of it as I was, so I’ve also quite a lot more weeding to do, a daunting task! Flowers are …

My Dream Garden

Oh, to dream. I meander around lots of beautiful gardens these days, with our National Trust days out, as well as enjoying my own and my mum’s. They lead me to daydream about my perfect garden. You know, the one you’d have if you won the lottery? If money and time were no barrier. So, …

My Garden in July

I have been really enjoying pottering about in the garden this summer. The work that I began last year is bearing fruit, as I have splashes of colour all around me, and more importantly I feel, I have scents wafting at me from all directions. Here’s a little peek at what’s happening out there at the …
