10 Natural Garden Remedies

Regular readers will know that I’ve been getting into my gardening over the past few months, having hitherto abhorred it! Well, in recent weeks I can be find pottering about out there most days, and am becoming a little, dare I say it, passionate about it all. I find myself …

Project Garden Update – 10th April 2014

We’ve been pretty busy out in the garden these past few weeks, so I thought it was about time that I shared what’s been happening. Regular readers will know that I started taking an interest in my garden last summer, and have steadily been adding things and changing it. You …

The Wonderful Attingham Park Gardens

On a beautiful sunny day a couple of weeks back, we made the trip up to Attingham Park, a superb National Trust property. It was our first visit and we were not disappointed. I’ll blog more about our day there and the house in the next few days, as there …

Project Garden In Full Swing Again!

It’s warming up and spring seems to have arrived, so we are back out there and kick-starting Project Garden again. It’s all gone a little quiet over the last few weeks, but the plans have continued forming, and so now I need to do something about them! As always, my …

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, …

My Photos – Week 2: My Garden

OK, so second lesson time! I’ve taken on my beginner’s tips, chosen my project of photographing my garden through the seasons, and this week I’ve been thinking about perspective. So here it is, my garden, my perspectives… I took a few photos of the same thing but from differing perspectives …

Project Garden Update 9/1/14

I thought it was about time I wrote an update on Project Garden. Truth be told, there’s been very little activity out there for the past few weeks, as the weather hasn’t really tempted me out. And people keep going on about a cold snap coming our way, so I’m …

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 …

I’m Loving…Higgledy Garden

I’m currently in the midst of Project Garden. It began this summer, and with any luck, I’ll have most of it completed by spring. Well, as ‘completed’ as any garden ever is, as once I’ve the foundations laid, with everything where I want it to be, it’ll be an ongoing …

Project Garden Update 7th November 2013

At the weekend, as it was raining and we wanted to all get out of the house, we popped along to a garden centre. This was extremely fortuitous, as they had a 70% sale on their outdoor plants – I was happy! Clearly, when faced with such a proposition, I …

How Does Your Garden Grow? 31st October

I thought it was about time that I brought you an update on the garden… The season is certainly ringing the changes out there in the garden. The wet weather has also put pay to a fair few gardening plans. Truth be told, it’s all looking a little bedraggled, sodden …

Project Garden Update 2nd October

I was hanging the washing out the other day (not the most glamorous start to a blog-post, I do recognise), and I was struck by how peaceful the garden was. It was a sunny, crisp autumn day, with a little breeze rustling through the trees. I rushed through my thrilling …

Project Garden Update 25th September

This week we have been getting out there and tidying it up a bit and just enjoying it in this final burst of good weather. Boo and I have planted lots of alium bulbs at the weekend, which I will be eagerly looking out for in the spring. Aliums were …

Project Garden Update 11th September

It’s been a few weeks since I updated with Project Garden‘s progress, so I thought it was about time I updated you. Firstly, I have lots of new seeds 🙂 I discovered the Higgledy Garden on twitter, and ordered a fair few from them when their bank holiday specials were …

Open Garden Day

On Sunday I was fortunate enough to be selling my cards in a gorgeous garden local to me, opening for charity for one day only. I was set up in the dining room, with the patio doors opening out onto the garden, so this was my view for the day.. …
