pottering

ahhh, the delights of gardening eh?...

now we have our own car, obtaining compost is easy peasy. So I spent most of today pottering about, transplanting my seedling which are coming on a treat, very exciting! I especially like plants who's baby leaves look like the grown up leaves, just much smaller {if you know what i mean} im sure there is a technical term for this, but as I am yet to keep a plant alive for longer then 5 weeks, Im a bit of a novice gardener.


i rescued this grape vine from the workshop, its a bit thin and weedy, not sure if it will produce some Peckhamshire Chardonnay yet but will give it a go.

Plimsoll is making sure all works are completed to a suitable standard.


so we are rubbing our hand together in excitement for our future salad {a very expensive salad if I do the sums!} 


also, been admiring my new Granny bag, to go with my Granny shoes and my Granny cardi...and my Granny wrinkles, oh yes : (

On another note, if you live in UK and ordered our Sakura necklace before Friday, then you should receive yours on Monday!

  3. Your garden is looking mighty fine. I love the tin bath full of seedlings. You could try growing an outdoor cucumber up a trellis... very little looking after, but homegrown cucumber, there is nothing like the taste! lou x

  10. I recently discovered your blog and absolutely adore it! Your photographs are just stunning. Yours is the kind of life I would love to lead - living in an adorable London flat and cultivating a beautiful garden! I lived in Bath for a year about 5 years ago and long to return to my beloved England! I will live vicariously through your blog until that happens!! Happy weekend!

    Lucky you to have a garden! I wish I could grow my own herbs and vegies, but alas, no garden and no balcony for me :-(
    Be careful that Plimsol doesn't decide on one of your lovely planters for her private powder room (if you see what I mean...).

  14. I am a complete novice in the garden and have decided to try and plant 2 (yes only 2) tomato plants this year just to see if I can actually manage to look after them for long enough for them to produce something :D If I manage not to kill these lovely plants and get at least one tomato I can actually eat I will be trying out more plants next year. Fingers crossed for both of us this year and may we both have a successful gardening year :)
