My Mum’s Garden

With this week’s photography lesson being all about nature, and then popping over to my mum’s house for a visit, it seemed clear that I needed to have a poke around her garden and take some photos… It was lovely to see so many signs of new flowers coming through, though everywhere was a little …

Our Fairy Garden

Project Garden continues! We’ve been out in the garden this week, planting up some shrubs that we recently bought, including Callicarpa Profusion which we recently spotted and absolutely adored. It’ll give us some lilac flowers in the summer and brilliant bright purple berries next autumn, which I’m already looking forward to. The children were also …
