#My Sunday Photo 14.05.17

We have been planting out the vegetables this weekend. In our vegetable beds we have peas, beans, cucumbers, rhubarb and peppers. I also hope to plant out a pumpkin. In the greenhouse we have tomatoes.

The pond area is also looking lovely as the foxgloves are beginning to flower.

Finally, I took some photographs over the weekend which have come out really well. The first is a Clematis taken at night. It was illuminated by the lights and looked so pretty.

The other picture I love is my Meconopsis which is flowering in the old house garden! I am so thrilled as these are quite tricky to grow. There is only one at the moment but another is coming through! These small things make me happy!


I hope you all had a great weekend.


To blog or not to blog….

Blogging is a strange thing. I was worried that it was narcissistic. I was worried that people may read my blog and think I was showing off. I thought that may be no one would read my blog. But do you know what? I don’t mind what other people may think. I wanted to chronicle the adventure of living in this amazing house….somewhere that I didn’t think I would ever get to live! I am lucky and I am happy and want to share that feeling with others.

Living in this old house has inspired me to write about what I love. I hope that it inspires you to have a try at whatever makes you happy. Interiors, gardening,family life, teaching and writing make me happy. That is why I have decided to create a blog. So if you love to read my blog then great! Come in and join me. If you’re not sure, then that’s ok too! There is room for everyone in the old house in the shires!
