The flowers are back

I have been picking the odd posy for the last few weeks but today I managed two buckets full with more ready tomorrow. My first rose of the season and my first ever Helichrysum. 

Lots more to come in the next few weeks and also courgettes  are on the way along with tomato's .















The weather seems to finally be sorting itself out so hope you all have a wonderful week and enjoy the lovely warm long days .

My Garden Right Now

Last week was the Chelsea flower show, I am sure if you were anywhere near a TV you would have seen all the show gardens and displays in the huge marquee. As a gardener I know it has a benefit to us all in getting new people involved and introducing us all to lovely new plants and gadgets we can use. I though, prefer real gardens, not show ones, built with a huge budget and moved on somewhere else after the show is over. 

Earlier this year a fellow blogger Michelle Chapman had a one day project where she invited people to take a picture of their own garden, or something in it, and post it on social media using the hashtags #mygardenrightnow . It was a huge success and Michelle was encouraged to enlarge the project and register it as a Chelsea Fringe event. 

So today here is my entry for the Chelsea Fringe 2017 my garden right now.



















And just to prove it was me here are my feet :)

Nearly Wordless Wednesday

The garden is finally looking pretty, lots of odd flowers about so I decided to photograph them today. The point was to practice for a Chelsea Fringe event I am planning on taking part in at the weekend called #mygardenrightnow. If you want to find out more about it have a look at the Chelsea fringe webpage. 

So here is my garden today .
