in the garden

I've been away from this place, now you know why 
;^)
I've been planting some heirloom tomatoes, 
peppers, various salads, chamomile and potted some flowers.

Lovely! Good to see you settling in...especially good to see your garden coming together as you wanted. Yay! Looking forward to seeing more. Hope all is well with you all and that the move has been pretty smooth for you. :) x

Your container garden looks so homey and sweet. Love the long wicker basket and how you've set up your pots. I want to adopt that "look" someday - you've inspired me. So nice to hear your getting settled. xo

Nice to see you again!

Kylie,I felt quite daring, although the blight always ruin the crops! sigh...finger crossed.

oh henry! good luck with your gardening.I think Alys F. is a no nonsense gardener and quite thrifty too.

Ana, thank you but my garden is a disaster really: it was just a desolate place full of weeds, I hope that with some (hard)work and clever ideas it will look nicer.

mirabellf, I found them(new)in a charity shop, they are swedish a bit hard though! : )))

kerry, it was painful, I had flu, I was miserable : ( and you know how hard it is to down size, but I'm getting settle now and def I need to stop buying lots of little things and get some real furniture!

Janis, growing in container is much easier (I guess and hope)also I can move them around, I'm planning to add more containers and perhaps buy a little tree to plant in one corner as it looks all so flat and at down level.

THANK YOU ALL, is good to have you here again! xxx
