Apologies for the radio silence, I had a mad week and this one is not going to be any easier with the RHS show, Freddie’s rash and husband’s birthday, relatives coming and going and lots of garden work. Oh my.
Five layer ombre cake with raspberry cream.
Despite all that we managed to have two productive weekends, there was a lot of coffee and pastry brunches, swimming pool for toddlers, London Wetland Center, a party cake for a two year old and my very first independent drive in pouring rain when I stalled the car twice, got beeped at and had my legs turned to jelly. We also managed to achieve some serious garden tasks like completing the garden fence (hubby) and digging the veg beds plus sowing green manures – Hungarian grazing rye and field beans (me). We also moved the back garden gate to the front and are thinking about interesting colours to make it stand out, it will be covered with wisteria in the years to come. I rather like this blue gate I saw at Sissinghurst Castle in the summer.
Sissinghurst. The sunshine!
Our gate and some very foggy weather.
Galvanised planter found in the depths of our garden. It will be perfect for succulents.
London Wetland Center, perhaps I should take inspiration from their Sustainability Garden, my water logged garden could benefit from some moisture loving plants.
