My Little Garden 23rd Oct 2021

I was a little worried this week that the photos for ‘Six on Saturday’ were going to be very dull. It gets harder to choose a ‘six’ as we head into late autumn and then winter, but I always hope for one decent day…

My Little Garden 16th Oct 2021

I didn’t expect the area where I live to be topping the Covid-19 statistics this week. The rapid increase in Trafford has been attributed to the rate of infection in schoolchildren, and given one daughter in law is a teacher and three out of…

My Little Garden 9th Oct 2021

More bulbs arrived in the post this week and thanks to a run of dry sunny days, and a bit of spare time, I filled the pots with a mix of peatfree compost and grit ready for bulb planting. Like last year, they will…

My Little Garden 2nd Oct 2021

October is here and unfortunately there’s no more kidding ourselves that it’s still summer. Our gardens may still be colourful, but the flowers are slowly starting to fade and it’s time to think about planting some of those bulbs. My first order has arrived…

My Little Garden 4th Sept 2021

This week I’m ‘celebrating’ the end of the school holidays. Of course I love spending extra time with my granddaughters, but after six weeks I’m ready for a little bit more time to myself.

For the last outing of the summer we took the…

My Little Garden 28th Aug 2021

It’s been a very pleasant end to the month of August. The weather decided to return to something approaching summer-like and we escaped on a little mini break to Shrewsbury and Wales. Gardens have been visited (I didn’t mention them all to the husband…

My Little Garden 21st Aug 2021

August has been whizzing along, and in week four of the school holidays we have been blackberry picking with both sets of granddaughters. The youngest is only two so it was her first proper experience of this prickly activity but she took to it…
