#MyGloriousGardens October Round Up Post. Grab a coffee for a great read!

Here we are and I’m a little late with my round-up post as I’m recovering from flu. Like, proper flu so am wrapped up in bed with my laptop whilst I write this! After a week off work I’m feeling a bit better so thought I’d better get around to the blog!

Anyway…moving along to the October Link Party…..
We had 14 linkers which is not as many as last month but heh? I’m sick right? so I’m ok with that! Thank you to everyone who did link up and comment on the other blogs.I’ve added a few lovely photos too…..love a great photo.

I’ve also gone back to using names if possible as it’s just so much nicer, don’t you think?

Karen

Karen is a regular linker over at thenextbestthingtomummy and linked a lovely post about collecting Autumn treasures with her little charges. As an Early Years teacher myself, I love getting outside with children and showing them the amazing things that nature holds. Thank you Karen. Do check out my Pinterest pages as I have loads of Early Years things that may interest you.

Paul

Hello again to Paul who also linked up last month. This month, Paul takes us to Tredegar House near Newport. I agree with Paul in that visiting gardens is a great way to inspire our own gardening and is one of the reasons I started this linky! I love the way he has gathered his own thoughts about the garden into useful ideas for our own gardens. Thank you so much Paul.

Are you ready for a read of a few lovely blogs??

Sarah

Hello to Sarah; a new linker. What an uplifting post about the bulbs she has in containers in her garden. As she is in Southern Australia it is Spring there so it is so lovely to see her blooms whilst we are preparing for Winter here. The colours and underplanting she uses are truly inspiring. Do check out her wonderful website; I especially love the posts about her own garden. Wonderful.

Jane

Lovely Jane. How are you? Another linker from the Southern Hemisphere…we need your light and flowers here in the UK as it’s so dark today! In Jane’s post she delights us with Hybrid Musk roses and there are so many to choose from. I especially like the sound of ‘Cornelia’. As you know, I’m on the look out for some new roses to plant in the Spring so thank you for these ideas.

Brigid

Brigid has a new camera and in this lovely post,she shares some of her photos with us of her garden in September. Thank you Brigid for being a regular linker. I love seeing how your garden changes over the seasons. Do go and take a look at Brigid’s site. It’s a wonderful place to sit, read and stop a while over a coffee.

Gill

Hello again Gill….lovely to see you linking up. Gill shares a fun post about the mystery of who has been getting in the new orchard….great fun post. Do go over and read for yourself. I wonder if Gill did get to find the culprits!

Here’sa wonderful Autumn canopy shot I took at the beginning of October to keep you interested!

Joshua

A lovely post about how Joshua will be preparing for the Spring this Autumn. He talks about the bulbs he will be planting and I agree with his choices; alliums. I love the showiness of alliums. Thank you Joshua for linking up again this month. I love seeing what you are up to in your garden.

Craig

Any post about food is ok with me! This is a great post by Craig about harvesting blackberries with his gorgeous dog, Mollie for company. Autumn gives us such wonders doesn’t it? I love blackberry picking don’t you? I think it’s just part of our country heritage in a way. I wonder what you made with all those blackberries, Craig? Yum!

Craig also posted about his trip to The Sussex Prairie garden using his RHS membership. I must admit, I haven’t heard of this garden so all the more reason to read this post! This is a must post if you love visiting gardens.

John

Great to see you linking this month, John. Six on Saturday is a great thing to get involved with other fellow garden bloggers. It’s a way of sharing 6 things that are happening in your garden at that moment on a Saturday and was started by The Propagator. It’s a fun thing to be involved in so thank you, John for linking your post.

Ann

Hello to lovely Ann, so glad to see you this month. I love this post about decorating pumpkins. I’m very into looking at flat lays on Instagram at the moment and so using mini pumpkins is key! Getting crafty with pumpkins and other Autumn harvest produce is such a great way to get children involved too. Thank you Ann for linking this.

A gorgeous pumpkin flat lay for you……love these type of shots……

Thomas

Lastly, we have a post by Thomas. Good to see you here again, Thomas. Thomas linked a post about using a Wrist support whilst gardening. It’s true that many of us gardeners do not think about the overuse injuries that may occur when gardening. Thank you for linking Thomas.

Well there we have it! The October Round up post for #MyGloriousGardens.

#MyGloriousGardens September Round-up Post

Hello everyone!

This is the September Round-up of #MyGloriousGardens. What a busy month it has been in the old house! Back to school and work, my school had an inspection, my poor mum has been ill and we have been hard at work developing a new part of our garden which is almost ready to share with you! Phew….

This month we had 18 lovely linkers.  I will be sharing these posts on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and Stumbleupon. I hope that this brings you more blogging love!

Not every linker is commenting on the other blogs so that is something that you may like to do in the next few weeks. Please don’t just link and run. It makes it easier if you could please add the #MyGloriousGardens tag after you comment so that bloggers can see where you came from. Thank you.

Now to the linkers:

Mudcakesandwine

A lovely post about adding annuals via seeds to a border. I think the author was disappointed but I think this border looks great and will possibly reseed itself for next year. A little bit of colour in a dull patch is always welcome! I’m sorry I couldn’t find your name on your blog but welcome to this little community of the blogging world! I hope you can return next month.

thenextbestthingtomummy

Karen posted 2 posts this month. She has worked in Early Years and posted a post about being a childminder as well as a post about The North Devon Mini-run. Thank you Karen for these posts and for linking again this month. I couldn’t find any share buttons on your posts Karen but I have put these on to Twitter and Stumbleupon.

allthingsspliced

Nicola shared a post about her lovely holiday in Cornwall in a caravan with her family. I loved the photographs in her post and it actually looked like she enjoyed good weather! They stopped off at Dyrham Park, one of my favourite places near me, to visit. Thank you Nicola for linking again this month.

Thomasstone.blog

Hello Thomas. Thomas is a regular linker and gives us gardeners lots of great advice! This month he talks about hedge trimming with practical tips and do’s and don’ts which has proved very useful in the old house garden. We have a large beech hedge which is now looking trim and neat!

Growingself

Hello Roda. I am an avid reader of Roda’s blog which is so uplifting and positive. This post is no exception. She always includes beautiful photographs to brighten the soul which you can also find on Instagram for further inspiration. Thank you Roda. I’m glad I was a post-it note reminder for September! Hope to see you again next month.

CandeloBlooms

Jane is a regular so welcome back Jane! I love the fact that Jane lives on the other side of the world so she is just approaching the excitement of Spring whilst we are heading into Autumn. It will be lovely to watch as her growing garden in months to come.

greenfingeredblog

Welcome to Paul as a new linker. Paul’s post is about a visit to a garden I don’t know about called, Kingston Maurward. You know me readers, I love a good garden visit as they were the inspiration behind #MyGloriousGardens. I love the way posts like this one enables us to take away inspiration for our own gardens and this one is no different. Do take a look. Thank you Paul for joining in with the Linky! I hope you pop back next month.

Mypottingbench

Welcome to Craig and his wonderful post on the amazing RHS Wisley. I haven’t been yet but this special garden is on my list! I love the Exotic Garden with its straight lines and central pond….glorious! Thank you for linking this month. We hope to see you again.

Joshua is a regular linker so thank you for linking this month! I love the way Joshua blogs about jobs that are easy for fellow gardeners to be getting on with and his shed is one such project. I hope to see you again next month.

This is such a cute post about Gill having little helpers in her garden and the lovely nature collection they made into a piece of art. Lovely to have you with us this month, Gill. Hope to see you again.

Vegplotting

Michelle linked last month so thank you for linking again. In this post, Michelle talks about the fact that we can sometimes be too critical of our gardens when we really shouldn’t be! After all this rain, my garden is looking a little windswept but it is still glorious. I’m sure you garden is too. Michelle.

Watching the Daisies

Hello Brigid and thank you for linking again to #MyGloriousGardens. Brigid has linked 2 posts and I love them both. If I had to choose I would say I love seeing her own garden and the changes that the seasons bring. Thank you for linking this month and hope to see you in October.

dogwooddays

Nic was a first time linker so welcome! I loved this post about the benefits at this time of year of having a cutting patch. I must admit that I may have to do this for next year! I love all the colourful Gladioli and Bells of Ireland that Nic is now enjoying in vases in her house. Right…now where is that bulb catalogue? Hope to see you next month, Nic.

Urbanvegpatch

A lovely round-up post from Caro about her garden and its fruit and veg. Like all of us gardeners she is excited about planning for the spring with….seed catalogues! We all love them don’t we? Lovely photographs in this post too.

 

Well that’s all folks…..See you in October.
