Redesigning Mummy Cupcakes Garden


So since Mummy Cupcake finished her chemo (yay :O) she has got her gardening MOJO back. She’s down at my house having her Radiotherapy which I am happy to report she is half way through (double yay :O).

We have spent the last two weeks touring garden centres and then this weekend I planted up the raised bed my Dad made her.

Here’s a few pictures of what we’ve been up to. Hope you’re all well and have got a bit of gardening done between rain showers.

Cupcake :O)

Here’s a couple of pictures of the amazing garden I found in the mountains in Poland. I dream of having a garden like this.

Beautiful wild flowers at the Chelford car boot sale near my house.

The very interesting Willow Pool garden centre in Cheshire.

and just when you think it can’t get any stranger……………….a giant my little pony that used to be a Blackpool illumination!

Our haul from Fryers Roses, half price pots galore :O)

The raised bed before:

and after:

and of course it wouldn’t be a cupcake garden without some magical creatures and faeris!

Here’s a couple of my little springer Otis and my Dad in his beach buggy :O)

and finally a few of my garden

Oh Jenny I'm so sorry about your Mum. I hope you're feeling as well as can be whilst coping with something like that :O( You are so brave. xx
It's not Stapely Water Gardens, I do fancy going there though is it nice? It's Willow Pool Garden Centre not far from Knutsford.

Scottish thank you so much I'll PM you. I am very lucky there are around 10-15 great garden centres near me, I have a great time visiting them all :O) MummyCC's very pleased and then some with her garden, so pleased in fact she has just bought and enormous amount of plants for me to put in :O)

Mum says thanks so much for all the well wishes ladies and would like me to pass on her regards in return :O)
