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”

Flowers, tennis, maybe a little football?

Hi everyone. It’s a very sporty day here in the UK with the Wimbledon Men’s singles final and then the Euro 2020 football final at Wembley later on. I’ll start off by showing you the pretty flowers in my garden and around our local estate. The stunning hydrangeas. Love these. Lavender, loved by the bees.Continue reading “Flowers, tennis, maybe a little football?”

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”

The poppies are back

I love these orange poppies in our garden. I think they’re weeds, but we’re keeping them. The bees seem to like them too. So how are you all? We’re fine. Life seems to be getting back to a bit of our pre Covid days. We are both doubly vaccinated (me through my job), so asContinue reading “The poppies are back”

Pretty stuff in Windsor

Hi. There’s a lot of pretty stuff going on in Windsor at the moment. The weather has been quite disappointing for May, but the signs of beautiful Spring are all around. Don’t you just love this purple? Here are some more that caught my eye recently… At The Savill Garden a couple of weeks ago..Continue reading “Pretty stuff in Windsor”

Another walk in the rain..

Hi. How are you all? For no particular reason I’ve come over a bit tired this afternoon, so I’ll keep this brief. I still have ironing to do and roast chicken to cook. We are not just fair weather walkers, we walk in the rain too, as we did this afternoon at Windsor Home Park.Continue reading “Another walk in the rain..”

I hope you like pink?!

Hi everyone. Yesterday we visited The Savill Garden which is about 20 minutes drive from us in Windsor. It is part of The Crown Estate. Usually it costs £13.50 per person including parking, but we used the 241 Gardeners’ World ticket I got recently with Gardeners’ World magazine so £13.50 total for us both. TheContinue reading “I hope you like pink?!”
