{ Garden-spiration }

I just can't stop buying flowers and pretty garden accessories! Over the past couple of weeks, our garden has gained a whole host of differing floral adornments including Lupin, Poppies, Hydrangea, Columbine, Foxgloves, Petunias, Dianthus and Rhododendron... to name but a few! It's such a nice way to spend the time - wandering around garden centres or picking out spots for specific flowers or planning what's next on the list.

Our most recent adventure took us to Scotsdales (a fantastic garden centre / nursery / gift emporium within a 10 minute drive of our house). Dave picked out a little cactus collection and decided on some gardening tools, which we've needed for a while.

Watching buds turn to great splashes of colour and intricate petal formations is just so fantastic. There are still a couple of gaps and a little selection of 'wish-list' flowers that might be looked at as the summer wears on. The prospects are exciting and it's a intriguing way to express creativity.

Do you take an interest in gardening? Or proon a little terrace garden or window box?

Love and lacery,
