|a new area of my garden in need of reclamation: it's to be a mini-potager surrounded by an eco-friendly shrubbery with lots of pots containing herbs and flowers as well|
You may notice that the title of this blog has changed; that's the doing of Grandma (me), the better to reflect what I want to write about. I had better explain: somewhere whilst meandering within my workspace, my garden, and with numerous garden and travel features to write, I lost the plot (figuratively) and Grandma's Garden went into hibernation. Meanwhile, the 'Gardening Companion' blog I was engaged to write professionally for Dobies of Devon came into being, and is flourishing - over 8,000 visits since the beginning of the year, over 600 to one post alone.
|these looked so cheerful on the roadside - not the sort of image you'd add to a professional blog, unless you wanted to demonstrate how prolific they are|
I've been back at Malvern within the last ten days in hot sunshine. So many new features for this year's 'Spring Gardening Show', I cannot wait to see them all, and will be spending all four days at the Show, blogging live I hope if the WiFi plays ball. Only twelve days to go (dates are 12th-15th May). I never know which aspect I like the most, but am never disappointed, even when the weather is not at its best.
|an olive grove in the making; it's sure to be transformed by the time I return|
It's a beautiful evening, though exceedingly blustery, but my little garden shown at the top of this post is sheltered and inviting. I have seeds to sow and plants to add to my collection of old pots; and maybe a glass of wine to enjoy sitting observing it all (though you cannot see the inviting sea-blue table and chairs in the pic above).
I do hope you will join me from time to time and visit my revised blog; I've also just dragged myself into the 21st century - I've discovered Facebook! Not quite sure what to do with it as yet, or how it works; but no-one is ever too old to learn (I'll just have to find the time.)
