Veg & Flowers

The garden is coming along nicely I love going out and picking what you have grown it always seems to taste better.   This year we have raised beds and a smaller plot and everything is doing well.

The pansies at the front are the winter ones and after the coldest winter we have ever had I thought they would not thrive but they keep flowering and flowering.  The Clematis has gone mad as has the honeysuckle and it smells divine. 





Even the Lavender is in bloom


When we moved here 9 years ago we had a bread oven and rabbit hutches which were really overgrown
We cleared the hutches away and revealed a lovely oven and sitting area but now
we have turned this space into a small conservatory and these are the finished results, hubby has worked so hard doing this all on his own with a little help from me, like holding the hammer and cleaning the windows, now I have a beautiful space to sit and read and craft, even has power points for the laptop.
