Bits and bobs!

The garden is looking green and lush at the moment. I love the juxtaposition of my Buddha and Green Goddess, snuggled together in the ivy and rosemary.  It says a lot about my spiritual views :D
A few weeks ago it was my Birthday.  I'd been wanting to turn my old stepladder into a strawberry planter for a very long time but didn't know where to begin. So my dear man made this for me as a surprise.  I'm so happy with how super cute it looks and when the strawberries are tumbling down, safe from slugs and snails, I'll be even happier :D
The vegetable garden is full to the brim with lovely spinach.  The onions are coming up and I've been planting seeds and beans in little pots so that I have a good crop this year. 
I had some soft fruit plants for my Birthday, so that's a good amount of berries to look forward to.
The front garden is coming to life but every year I want to clear out the lawn and put down gravel.  I think it's just going to be too difficult and expensive for me to do though, so it's on the back burner for now.  I have plans for some raised beds for more beans, so maybe I'll chip away at the grass a little at a time :D
The long dog has been a big help, but nibbling the shoots off the Hydrangea was not appreciated.  I'm sure he thinks I've planted one of his sticks!!!

  1. Hello! The last suggestion made me laugh!...
    Living in a flat, I have no connection with earth and planting, except for the flowers in pots that I take care of throughout the whole year... That's why I find your post like an exciting story. Of course I know that everything needs efforts and hard work. I suppose your children help you!
    P.S. Please, share a pic of the strawberries, before you eat them!:D
