How Does Your Garden Grow…

Bloomin’ wonderful!

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m hopeless at gardening, well I was until recently.

Not sure what I’m doing but the garden is looking pretty darn lovely!

There is so much colour, I actually squee and do a little dance when I see see flowers opening up under the sunshine for the day. Even seeing the petals close up for the night is rather satisfying.

I planted, grew and tended to these amazing bursts of colour! I feel like a proud mama all over again.

This planter is just a riot of colour, you can’t see them all here, but there are pinks, reds, oranges, white and even a hint of yellow at the back.

The Sweet pea the boys grew at school is doing beautifully, another proud mama moment.

Isn’t this just a gorgeous burst of sunshine!

My Lavender is finally starting to come through, seems rather late this year but better late than never.


The Clematis which I thought I had cut away completely has made a marvellous come back. I love how it branches out and clings to whatever it can, such determination to strive.

This one has popped up from nowhere but is a much welcomed addition.

But what I’m most chuffed with is the tomato's and chillies which hubs is growing!!

This little guy is Tommy Ahta, he’s our first, we’re so proud.

And these are his friends!

home grown tomatoes and chillies

Yep, I have yellow walls in the green house and curtains, gotta make the veggies feel at home.

It’s been a wonderfully productive few weeks in the garden, although I’m now starting to think about autumn and winter and what I can do to maintain some colour and life in the garden…answers on a postcard please!

Pop over to Manneskjur the former Mammasaurus to see some gardening delights.

  3. you should be rightly proud of your garden - it is looking lovely! I have a chilli plant on my kitchen windowsill with tiny chillies now appearing.

  4. Wow, those chillies are big and your tomato is looking good :) Our lavender is only just flowering too, I expected it to be early after the streak of warm weather. I have a white version of the pink flower, not sure what it's called though, do you know?
