We are pretty much back to normal, the kids went back to school and hubby back to work this week.

The tree came down and I have found the house again.

Meal plans will not include curry or gammon for a little while hahaha.

We have a couple of new meals this week that sound really nice and can not wait to try them out.

A honest look at our garden August 2018

I love my garden but sometimes I look and sigh, today is one of those days.

We have had a tough time gardening, late frosts followed by constant rain then came the long hot and dry summer, all this combined with three kids including a toddler has led to what follows.

This is the view from the climbers on the far fence at the moment.

We have leaves fallen from the lollipop trees due to the heat and lack of rain, the climbers are very slow in growing and we have quite a few dead branches, however the bindweed is growing very well among the climbers and loving the location.

This is the border just in front of the lollipop trees, we planted what I mistakenly though was winter flowing bedding, in fact, they have been flowering since late spring but are now starting to go over, adding to the beauty of half dead flowers is the grass doing very well at the bottom of the sleeper.

The next area of mess is the new border we created when a new fence was put up. We brought some plants, despite watering…

Front Garden Grow Your Own

Introducing our garden equivalent to the messy cupboard. You know the place where you shove all the stuff you are not sure what to do with, this is the same but in our front garden. The problem is we look at this every day from our kitchen window.

Time for action, we moved to this house as its fairly rural, we wanted space to grown some veggies and have chickens. Its now 7 years later and we have not done any of it. 

We sorted the area and Mr MC&W went off to the tip with a boot full of rubbish that we had been hiding including an old washing line.

As you can see the ivy has remained, this was meant to go but we checked for nests and found a blackbirds nest, so we have left it alone allowing them to raise their chicks.

We decided the way forward is for raised troughs, they are higher meaning we can easily see from the kitchen window. In order to maximise the space we have, we found three different sizes of troughs to see what worked best and measured them out using bean poles, you cou…

Planting Hanging Baskets Summer 2018

We have five hanging baskets to be planted this year. Mr MC&W offered to have the children so I could go the garden centre and choose all the plants we needed. It felt a little like supermarket sweep, I was on count down to get back for him to play golf. But I am thrilled with the choices and the colours we have this year. 

I went shopping earlier than last year and choice of plants was so much better and lots of new and interesting colours to choose from.

Petunia, I have to have a big basket of Petunias and this year they were selling black ones, I have always wanted to do a basket that had these balck petunia, I mixed them with Blue vein to create the most dramatic basket I have ever done. I adore this one as it is so bold and so hope it works out well.

I am a little obsessed with Nemesia they are just stunning flowers and they have this beautiful variety called Rhubarb and Custard I decided to get two and then surrounded with Calibrachoa Cabaret in Light pink and Lemon to make a s…
