It's Saturday morning, the air is changing and you can feel the garden starting to settle into a slower pace of life. If you have been reading this blog you know of my front garden, the area I deem "the land that time forgot." The funny thing is that by doing nothing,...

Six on Saturday – End of Summer

Walking around the cottage garden this week it feels very much like the end of summer. The dahlias are blooming, the dianthus are starting to go over and there is a crispness to the evening air that I know my summer plants cringe against. I love the autumnal change...

Six on Saturday – Bulbs of Colour

I love this time of year when the garden starts to come back to life with exotic colours. Last October I started planting bulbs for Spring as the cottage garden didn't have a lot of bulbs. For the last month I have had fresh daffodils all over the house and garden. I...

Six on Saturday – January Veg Patch

This week we are taking a look at the vegetables that are currently growing here at the cottage. It's been an odd winter and milder than most so everything is currently looking a bit leafy here. I confess that in December my lack of constant care in the greenhouse had...
