Six on Saturday: It’s all about a little touch of sunshine!

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.

Six on Saturday: Spring is here!

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.

Putting Your Gardening Skills to Profitable Use.

A lot of people nowadays like to devote their time to gardening. If you don’t work outside, it’s a great use of your time, as it gets you outside to soak up the sun, and you learn a lot of new, practical skills in the process. It can also be quite a therapeutic hobby, and it can bring in a lot of food when you do it properly! Because of all this, it’s also an amazing business venture to go down, if you think you have the ability to craft a whole corporate persona out of it! Here’s some helpful tips for setting up a gardening business in your spare time, and how the online world can make even more out of it.

I was reading the usual 6 on Saturday posts which I love and Thomas posted about his 6 favourite garden successes of 2017. I thought I would join in too! The weather here in Wiltshire is very stormy with high winds and lashing rain so plans to start digging out the new pond will have to wait!
