Hello everyone. It’s still scorching hot here in Wiltshire but we did have some rain this week which helped the garden although the lawn is brown and crunchy! I have been hosing this week as my water butts are now dry but the garden is coping well at this point.
I’m back! Thank you so much to Ann for giving me some time to write reports and sort out my other job!
Ann blogs over at Gardening limited and guess what? She’s decided to Cohost with me forever! Whoop! Whoop! How fabulous is that? So now you have two lovely ladies running this amazing link party and two sets of reasons to join in! Ann is a Pinterest queen so all posts will get twice the amount of linky love. 💕
I’ve had a bit of a blogging break for report writing and have been enjoying spending my free time doing the #30daywildchallenge. However, I haven’t written a 6 on Saturday post for a few weeks so I thought it’s time to share what is happening in the Old House Garden!
I’ve decided to try the 30 days Wild challenge this year. This is something that I wanted to take part in last year but found I was too busy. This year I am determined to do this even though I’m busy so will try to take a photo everyday and post it on my Instagram account. I will also post a blog post now and then to try and roundup what I’ve been up to. If you would like to take part take a look here .
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.
