Things have been a bit crazy this week. I have been working my butt off with cake orders and AJ now has chickenpox so unfortunately there hasn't been much time for gardening. Here are a few pics I took last week though. It's finally starting to look more colourful thanks to a £4.99 mixed pot from Aldi, a rescued half price delphinium blue from Tesco and that poor old geranium I salvaged from our neglected hanging basket a couple of months ago. The shrubs in the border are fluffing up and I've planted LOADS of bulbs in there too, because they were in a 70% off sale at the garden centre and I couldn't help myself!
|Good old pink geranium, potted up with some younger geraniums and some white bacopa.|
|Can anyone tell me what this is called? We were given it as a clipping. It's very strong and Nick had to cut it back earlier in the year because it was spreading so much! The flowers are lovely.|
|Withering away now, but still looking lovely.|
|Still amazed by these little plums!|
|Strawberries are a-comin'|
|The wildflower seed mix I sprinkled in the hanging basket (and the window box) are doing quite well. I can't wait to see what they'll be!|
|Nick has since mowed the grass so it's looking much neater. Happy with our little patch of greenery!|
