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.

I make no secret of the fact I love gardening and helping local wildlife in my garden. I love that we have hedgehogs, toads, frogs, newts, slow worms, butterflies, bats and bees in the old house garden. I do not use chemicals at all and always try to find other, organic ways to overcome pests or problems.
