More flowers from the garden

Sweet peas, lavender, coreopsis. Every year I sow my sweet peas in June which is a bit late so they’re never that plentiful. Next year I must remember to do it in May so they get more time to grow. Some of the colours are so amazing, the brightest most vivid pink I’ve ever seen.

Put to good use at last

Buckets & Tins

Bucket & bread bin

These have been knocking around in my garden for years. This year I decided to drill some holes in the bottom and plant mixed flower seeds in them. Now they have a purpose and I’m so pleased with them. The bucket is a vintage Dutch potato bucket.

Too Lovely

Mini Vintage Bunting

My vintage bunting can be used in the garden on a dry day, though they are few and far between at the moment. These florals were hand printed in the USA in the thirties.

Helexine growing at the bottom of the summer house

Helexine

Helexine or ‘mind your own business’ as it’s commonly called.

I love Helexine so much and how it spreads everywhere in shady places. It starts off as one small plant and gradually creeps around supposedly in everyone’s business which is where it gets it’s name ‘Mind Your Own Business’.
