Six on Saturday

Six on Saturday is when you share six plants or things that are happening in your gardening and was started by The Propagator

I haven’t joined in before but after lots of bulb planting today, moving some perennials and sorting out the Greenhouse, I managed to take some good photographs that I am happy with.

We enjoyed a cloudy yet mild day today in Wiltshire but there is a storm coming tonight so I’m not looking forward to that!

Happy Saturday everyone!

The Old House Garden Round up. 14th July 2017. It’s all about sunshine!

It’s been 2 weeks since my last round up and I’m going to take a 2 week blogging break so this will be my last post for a while.

The garden is in it’s prime at the moment. My Mother in Law is here to stay and I’m so pleased she has brought the sunshine with her!

The peas have failed. They are covered in spiders and caterpillars and the peppers haven’t done so well. Still trial and error in the Old House Garden. We have lots of tomatoes and cucumbers though.
