My garden one of my favourite things…

I didn’t plan the garden exactly it has evolved,  but we did bring quite a few shrubs in pots from our gardens in London when we moved down here.

I tend to plant a few seeds in Spring and I buy established tomatoes and courgettes to plant in black P1070702buckets. I divide the contents of a ‘groP1070712w bag’ into each bucket,  add a plant to each one, put them in the greenhouse and keep them well watered.

I can’t resist anything that gets reduced in the garden center so this year we have potatoes in special bags and trailing begonias in pots.

When something pops up unexpectedly I tend to leave it be, hence buttercups, forget-me-nots and marigolds in unexpected places!

I think I find it easier to commune with nature than I do with people.

The frogs and newts have started to show themselves in the pond which is how I like it!
