I’ve been Blogging for 18 months now and it’s good to reflect on the blog every 6 months or so. In doing so, I hope to create a better reading experience for people but also it is a good way to focus on what I want out of blogging and Oldhouseintheshires.
It looks as if we are in for some warm weather this May Day weekend which will be lovely. The garden is just about to take off and it just needs a little warmth now for it to really take off this Spring.
6 on Saturday is a meme started by The Propagatorblog. It’s a place to share 6 things in your garden and it’s a lovely meme to join in with.
And then it was May….how did that happen?? Welcome to the #MyGloriousGardens May link party! A place to link blog posts about your garden, a garden you have visited, garden tips and advice or, an outdoor experience that you would like to share with the world. Link parties are great for meeting new bloggers, gaining new readers and putting your blog post out there to be enjoyed by others.
Here is my latest 6 on Saturday post. If you would like to join in with this meme do check out The propagators blog to find out more.
This week the Old House garden has noticeably grown with all the rain we have had here in Wiltshire. After the hot, sunny weather of last weekend, this cold weather has been a shock! I’m back in my coat and boots! Ah well, the joys of spring in the U.K. The garden has obviously enjoyed it.
Here is the April #MyGloriousGardens Round up post! Hasn’t the weather been strange? One minute it’s boiling hot and the next, freezing cold here in Wiltshire. My garden is confused and so am I!
Anyway, we had 16 linkers in April with some lovely posts. I’m afraid a couple of links led nowhere so I can’t comment on these or read them. Thank you to everyone for taking part and for continuing to grow this garden linky party. As always, I share your posts on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and StumbleUpon so I hope that you have new readers finding your blogs. If you haven’t yet commented on any posts, please do that so that everyone who links up gets some comments.
Hello everyone and I’m a little late with my Six on Saturday but we have been ultra busy today. We have visited RHS Cardiff this morning, had lunch at Tredegar House on our way home, had a quick look at the house and gardens and then home for some gardening in this glorious sunshine! It’s been 17 degrees this afternoon in Wiltshire so we felt energised to get in the garden for the last few hours of the afternoon.
If you are unfamiliar with the meme, Six on Saturday, take a look at The Propagator Blog for the participant guide.
Here are my Six on Saturday and finally, Spring is here! We have enjoyed some Spring sunshine this week after such a cold spell. The garden is waking quickly now and you can see the growth each day. I have been busy weeding, mulching and sowing seeds this week. It’s been a busy time as we have also finished the wildlife pond.

I hope you all had a super Easter weekend and enjoyed a restful time with your families. 🐣 I love that about this time of year, don’t you? Although the weather has not been kind, we have finished the wildlife pond, celebrated our daughters 18th and eaten far too much cake and chocolate!
I’m soooo excited as I’ve been asked to guest host for the #Dreamteam Linky! Whoop, Whoop!
If you don’t know this Linky then come along and take a look. It’s the first Linky that I joined when I started blogging and there are lots of great blog posts to read. As a linker, you get to join a super community of bloggers. So after linking up, sit back and read some amazing posts!

Welcome to the March Round up Post! I can’t believe it is almost Easter and the end of March already. The beautiful photo of the Fritillaria was taken Easter 2017 in the old house garden. I really hope this cold rain goes away soon!
We had 20 link ups this month which is absolutely fabulous! We also had a winner for the competition and that was Joshua from 30daysofwildparenting. Well done Joshua! Your prizes are on their way already!
