Autumn capsule wardrobe all sorted… and now it’s summer!! 😎🥵🌞🌻

So my colleague Tina was right when she said “Isn’t 1 Sept too early to start your autumn capsule wardrobe, Gail? It might be really hot at the beginning of September?” ….. “No, I’ll just keep out a couple of short sleeved tops and it’ll be fine”. Well my dear readers, it is not fine,Continue reading “Autumn capsule wardrobe all sorted… and now it’s summer!! 😎🥵🌞🌻”

More Chelsea Physic Garden…

Hi. As promised I’m back with the rest of the Chelsea Physic Garden pics.. They have a male and a female ginkgo tree, one either side of the path. Who knew that ginkgoes are either male or female… ? I didn’t. Now don’t ask me which this one below is!? It’s gorgeous whichever it is.Continue reading “More Chelsea Physic Garden…”

Aren’t the flowers above lovely? I was very happy to receive these at work recently. How did they know IContinue reading “Miscellaneous Waffle from Windsor”

The Savill Garden (again!) third time this year

Firstly I’d like to say I really ❤️ my aircon. So lovely. Cool. Refreshing. I’m lying on the bed after a beautiful stroll around The Savill Garden today. It was hot at The Savill Garden, but quite shady along many of the paths. I seem to be going back to this place every month atContinue reading “The Savill Garden (again!) third time this year”

The house leek is flowering

Hi there. I have been in a low mood on and off all day, for no particular reason. What a waste of a day off, this has annoyed me that I couldn’t snap out of it. I was cheered up by the sight of our house leek flowering for the first time. We had noContinue reading “The house leek is flowering”

Hydrangeas and Delphiniums

Hello everyone. The hydrangeas are doing very well in our front garden border now. Complete with mushrooms that keep growing next to them, for some reason. We have 2 x white hydrangeas and 1 x blue hydrangea. I think they’ll look really good in a couple of years when they completely fill this space. HereContinue reading “Hydrangeas and Delphiniums”

Garden pics (part 2)

Hi. I’m back. Two blogs in one day, that’s got to be a first. I just thought I’d show you the rest of my garden pics as, quite frankly, it beats doing the ironing. The duck curry is doing its thing in the oven for the next 1.5 hours…. The blue flowered plant above (sorryContinue reading “Garden pics (part 2)”

May tour of The Waffle garden

Hi guys. While I’m waiting for my garden photos to download, let’s talk about food, for a change! A couple of nights ago I made this chicken laksa. Highly recommended. I got the recipe from the Good Housekeeping Express cookbook, which is one of my favourite cookbooks. I think I used a bit more chickenContinue reading “May tour of The Waffle garden”
