Back In The Garden!

Good Morning!
As promised yesterday I am back with some more photo's of my garden! You may be wondering how much it could have changed in a week but infact it has quite a lot ... however including my Conservatory door in this wasn't part of the plan ....


I have an inspection today with my Letting Agents so it was great timing for this to happen. All down to a tiny stone whilst cutting the lawn :(

On a lighter note I managed to get the border at the front of my house planted up on Saturday with some Dahlias, Dianthus, Gazanias, Asters, Antirinhum, Verbena and Begonia's ... whew! I thought it would only take me an hour but how wrong was I lol Apologies for the rubbish photo but it was such a struggle to get it all in one shot.


I managed to get two thirds of the borders done in the back garden too, adding a mix into my border of perennials of Zinnia's, Clary, Asters and Begonia's. Around the lawn I added some Stocks, Viola's, Pansies and Petunia's.



I've also added a couple more pots and given them a little re-position.
The 2 little toadstools were a gift from my Mother, they certainly catch your eye!



My Mimulus pot is certainly growing rapidly!



Before I go you can see that some of the Hanging Baskets I shared last week are slowly starting to come into flower.




Remember the orange poppies a couple of weeks ago? Well they faded away and this morning I spotted this gorgeous yellow poppy in their place!


Before I go though I had to add something a little Crafty to my post ... look what the Postman delivered on Saturday, I shall definitely be having a play with these this morning!


Thanks for popping by, I'l be back tomorrow with another card for PTW!
HAPPY CRAFTING!
