Hibernating & Hoarding


By sarahm


Hibernating & Hoarding – that’s me , not the wildlife!

Have bought lots of items in the winter garden sales which is helping me look forward to spring!

Can’t wait to get this little lot out in the garden…the excitement of spring approaching is better than Xmas!
All the best to everyone posting snowy and other nice winter pics to see us through to spring!

Flexi-stones for in front of greenhouse and in deep borders, so that I take less mud indoors….

For the two mini holly standards I bought at Xmas which will get put in to bigger pots…

Wonder which I will end up with more of…..

So excited about this buy….a mirror I can’t wait to get in place. After much humming and ha-ing, decided on perspex….

Hope to place my mirror just behind this once it is in situ…(the water feature that is, not my photogenic freezer!)

Plus I am going to try wall planters on the fence this year..
