Well hello, I hope you had a happy Easter with lots of sunshine and the odd chocolate egg? We embraced the heatwave and took a mini vacation in our own town, had dinner at the shoreline, a road trip to folkestone, a day at the seaside, a walk in the country park and lots of other things too. Really making the most of our town and the surrounding areas of beauty.With May fast approaching and flowers blooming everywhere my garden coveting has reached dizzying new heights. So, to get me through (hopefully) one last summer without a garden, I have collected all my favourite seasonal plants and flowers together on the mantlepiece. Over the last couple of weeks I have gathered, apple, lilac and quince blossoms, the beautiful bunch of flowers from T.Wells, my longest surviving orchid and thanks to my lovely friend Emma, I have now found two bright and perky geraniums.I am going to try my damnedest to keep the potted plants alive and the cut flowers looking fresh and will change them as needs be. Until two days ago this was the only place the cats couldn’t get at, sadly no more, now I just need to stop those naughty little tigers from digging out the soil.I love geraniums, to me they conjure such a nostalgic feeling, like reading Enid Blyton at my grandma’s house or sitting in a garden like the one from “the Darling buds of may’. Easy, cheery flowers from a simpler way of life. I wonder, what are your favourite potted plants?
