Bank Holiday Weekend

Hope you are all having a great Bank Holiday (UK) weekend? I’m having a lovely one: the weather could be a bit sunnier but at least it’s dry.

I’ve spent most of the weekend in the garden and my garden project is nearly complete, I’ll put a before and after up later on.

May 1st and Breezy Knees Gardens in Warthill are open again for the season. Lots of pretty blossom on the trees and lots of flowers in bloom. I can’t wait to see how the gardens change throughout the year. A quick video of part of my visit. Let me know if you want to see more like this.

A big THANK YOU to all who have bought me a coffee (donated) to keep my page up and running, it is much appreciated. If you want to make a one of ‘coffee’ please see the link at the bottom of the page.

Busy, busy, busy

Hope you are all had a great weekend? I had a lovely one and the weather was absolutely gorgeous; the added bonus that the clocks went back into British Summer time yay!

I spent most of the weekend in the garden planting plenty of seeds in the greenhouse, looking forward to seeing them grown and flower in the following months (I hope you like the edit of the boots? They were from when I visited Ripley Castle a few years ago).

My grass got it’s first mow of the year and even better still I found my ‘missing’ camera battery so all is good in my little world.

Thursday Tales

Good morning

Another busy day today!

A bit of gardening & tidying up after Storm Arwen and the snow/frost that we had a few days ago.

My lovely Cosmos has had to be pulled up, until next year when I’ll plant some more. I’ve also ordered some lovely golden yellow ones for next year as well.

The birds are loving the berries in the garden, I keep seeing them eating all the left over grapes as well!

Last days of May

Name, png

Well May’s nearly over and I can say that it has been one of the wettest. My garden is like a swamp and there is no way that my lawn is going to get cut for a long time. The lawnmower will sink!

I have planted out some sunflowers in the front garden but the slugs & snails have found them and now there is nothing left apart from a stalk sticking up out of the ground. Silver, slimy trails meander from the place my sunflowers were once growing, back into the undergrowth, so I’m rather reluctant to plant any more out at the moment!

Putting a part of yourself into what you’re doing

(Noun / Origin: Greek / me·ra·ki)

This is a modern Greek word that’s often used to describe the instance wherein you leave a part of yourself (your soul, creativity, or love) in your work – so it’s like when you intensely love to do something or just about anything that you put something of yourself into it.
