In the Garden

At last, the weather is warming up!! I’m SO ready for Spring, the garden is waking up slowly, buds and blossoms are appearing on the trees and the grass is turning green again. We’ve planted Gerberer Daisies and Primulas all over the place. They are such happy looking little flowers!

Hope your week is lovely



In the Garden



Love the spirals on this plant!



We’ve been working in the garden this week, I know it’s still technically winter but I just can’t wait, I’m having so much fun! We cleared both beds down the driveway, there were old lavender bushes planted there and they were very woody and dead in the middle. We’ve replaced them with standard roses, Agapanthus at the back and lots of colourful seedlings. The Agapanthus grow like weeds all over our garden in huge clumps, we dug a few of them up, separated, trimmed and replanted them to form borders.

More pics to come soon!

Have a lovely Sunday:)

Frozen Birdbath


It’s been really freezing here this past week! The bird bath froze almost every night and there was ice on the outside furniture!


Our beautiful chickens have started laying eggs, the young ones have full-grown wattles and combs now and the older ones who were moulting have their new feathers. I just love them!!


Jen sitting with Miss Piggy, she is a gigantic Buff Orpington and eats everything in sight, she almost as heavy as Charlie (our cat) when we hold her (and he’s heavy!) :)


Six eggs in one day! Love it, they are so much nicer than the free range shop bought eggs.

My dear Stephanie, she’s snuck in to eat the chicken food while no one was watching.

Have a great Saturday and a lovely Solstice weekend!
