What could be better - a week off from work, an uneventful drive to the coast and a few days relaxing- bliss. In reality, this was a tad optimistic - to expect a task free interlude would be naive given our past experiences of looking after our garden in Wales. Trepidation started last Thursday when … Continue reading Just another week in Wales – escape of the ‘Aberglasne Two’!
It's been much drier this week and so there's been a flurry of activity in the garden - but not involving me! Chris's tenure as Captain of our golf club has come to an end and so with more time at home, he's had an enjoyable few days starting the annual Autumn tidy. I'll be … Continue reading Six on Saturday- Wales
We've had some fantastic non gardening related news this week - our daughter and her husband are expecting their first baby, our first grandchild. So exciting - we've quite a wait of course as the baby is due at the beginning of April 2022. Back to all things plants and gardens, apart from ordering tulip … Continue reading Six on a Wet & Windy Saturday
No posts for a few months and then two come along together! Having a week off work in lovely sunshine has been great and given me time to re-charge my garden writing and make plans for bulb planting season. Looking back at my last Six on Saturday, I can see that the foot injury I … Continue reading Six on Saturday
Gosh, it's been ages since I added a post to my blog - and so it's time to put this right and what better way than by sharing our experience of the gardens at Aberglasney, a historic garden set in Wales's Tywi valley. The garden has undergone a magnificent restoration over the last 30 years … Continue reading Aberglasney House & Gardens
It's been a few weeks since I've blogged, as gardening and taking photographs presented quite a challenge whilst in a moon boot and dependant on crutches! They're history now thankfully, but it's not all plain sailing - I've found that it's surprisingly difficult to walk properly after the period of inactivity! Fortunately Chris has enjoyed … Continue reading Six on Saturday – back on track!
I can't believe it's 5 weeks since I last posted a blog - doesn't time fly! I started building a website in March and was busy at work, but not much else has occupied me during the last two weeks as I unfortunately fell over the lawnmower and broke the fifth metatarsal bone in my … Continue reading Six on Saturday – Daffs & More
It's the last day of February already! The first of March marks the beginning of the season ahead and after a distinctly spring like day, I'm happily optimistic about the months to come. I've been reflecting on our winter garden over the last few weeks, for as we've been so restricted, flowering shrubs have been … Continue reading Winter Shrubs
With this week delivering more than a glimmer of hope for spring and summer after a long and dark winter, the sun has also been shining on us over the last few days - my mood is certainly lifting! Taking full advantage this morning, I was up early and in Walsall Arboretum enjoying the visual … Continue reading Six on Saturday – Simply Crocus
It's been a few weeks since I've posted, given the current circumstances it's amazing how time still seems to fly. So far this year I've had a big birthday, been extra busy at work (still from the home office), bought a wide selection of seeds and had a laptop drama - it crashed as I … Continue reading Six on Saturday – hellebores and co…..
