Anglesey Woodland in mid-May

During our family holiday on Anglesey in the middle of May we spent a few days discovering ancient pre-historic sites on the island. The walk to a fortified hut group took us through this beautiful patch of woodland growing happily on a gentle slope. I hope you enjoy the photos I took.         The […]

Simply Beautiful -10

Sometimes two plants flower side by  side and enhance each other so much. The whole is far greater than the sum of the parts. Complementary colours blue and yellow present great partnerships. A blue Anemone blanda teamed up with a native Primrose stops me in my tracks every day as I wander along the grass […]

Simply Beautiful 8 – Subtle Shades

What an unbelievably subtle and beautifully understated little flower! Checking over the greenhouse today and there on one of Jude’s mixed Primula auricula seedlings was this one little beauty. How clever Mother Nature is, thinking of pairing cinnamon and lemon yellow. she then considered texture and added a dusting of castor sugar and a light […]

The Dorothy Clive Garden in November

Our November visit to see the changing faces of this lovely Shropshire/Staffordshire border garden saw us arriving in sunshine but we were to be treated to a magnificent sky later in the day. The grass below our feet was wet with the heavy dew from the night hours and it sparkled and glowed in the […]

Southwold – Beach Hut Special

In this blog I will celebrate to the unique beauty and eccentric natures of the great British beach hut. Southwold situated on the Suffolk coast overlooking the North Sea is rightly famous for its huts, having a style of hut named after it and having a couple of rows adding up to a few hundred […]

Hampshire Seaside – part two – Milford

To bring some sunshine to a very dull January let us turn the clock back and enjoy a visit to the Hampshire coast. While in Hampshire we drove down through the New forest avoiding cattle, donkeys, pigs and ponies on the road and down to Milford on Sea. Just like Lymington this small seaside town […]

The Leaf

A few days ago as I was on my way down the ramp into the back garden I was met by a leaf on its way in. I knew immediately from which tree it had come – a Cotoneaster in the side garden in the Freda Border. It had traveled a fair distance for such […]

Aiming for an all year round garden – our garden in November

The penultimate posting in my monthly look at how well our Avocet garden is looking is already here. We are aiming for an all year round garden so we hope this series will help us check up on how we are progressing. The first week of November has been so changeable with bright, mild days, […]

Portmeiron – the work of an eccentric.

We always enjoy spending the day at this crazy, quirky and totally exuberant “garden” on the Welsh coast near Portmadoc. Portmeiron is a village and gardens created by the eccentric Clough William-Ellis who bought the site in 1925 and then spent the following 50 years developing it into what we can visit and enjoy today. […]

Wild Colours at the Dorothy Clive Garden

We visited the Dorothy Clive Garden recently with a few fellow Hardy Plant members. This garden is famous for its spring planting in the section called The Dingle – Rhododendrons and Azaleas in the wildest colour combination possible. These aren’t our favourite shrubs but we do enjoy going to this garden to see them once […]
