Spring holidays always have been, and always will be, gardening holidays

Planting, pruning, sowing, watering – not sure it gets a lot better than this. Highly relaxing and even better when the sun is shining. There is a comfy chair in a quiet corner of my veg plot. I like to call it my Thinking Chair. It is a very productive part of my outside space !!


My beautiful Camelia


My beautiful Camelia

I am so proud of myself for nurturing this gorgeous Camelia all through the Winter, covering it in bubble-wrap, talking to it, remembering to water it and generally looking after it. Look at the result that was waiting for me this morning as I stepped outside the kitchen door. This glorious plant in splendid technicolour. I am feeling quite green-fingered !!
