      We love these  types of lanterns. We put liquid mosquito repellent in them and light them and it keeps them away, also looks nice with the flame at night !

A WEEKEND OF GARDENING

We had topsoil and mulch delivered on Saturday and we went to work on our gardens. We are almost finished all the gardens. The weather was great for gardening, today its sunny, hot and sticky but that's ok I don't mind. I may tackle the back garden today or just take a day of rest.

Papa created his little garden under his work shop window  and picked the plants he wanted for it ! Great job Papa looks wonderful !

THE STARTING OF OUR GARDENS

It’s been a slow start to our gardening this year due to the strange spring we have had .We started planting in our gardens on Wednesday and are still going , rearranging this and that and figuring out what plants would do well were. Tomorrow I am getting more plants . We have a large garden in the back by our hedges that has just gone wild and not with all flowers either so I have to clean that up this weekend and re plant that's going to be a big job ! It has been rainy yesterday and today and the more it rains the faster all the weeds grow, its tuff to keep up with them but we are getting there !

          Photos of a few flowers we have planted in the garden and  our  planters !

   My new little Lilac bush.We have Lilac bushes in the back there but they are behind the sheds and I cant see them from the house but this pretty one I can. After we put it in the weather turned stormy and windy so we have it tied to these posts to stop it from toppling over whilst we wait for it’s root system to form in the ground.
