Today was fun ....


Today, I pretended I was on holiday!

I love spending time in the garden during the hols, so that’s what I did. I spoiled myself, I had bought a new dress, and promptly did the gardening in it, planting a new clematis, beans, lettuce and basil.

I have a corner which is my “anything goes” corner and all failing plants or “misfits” get a change to shine here – so in went some droopy pansies and various others.

I enjoyed hoeing my veggie patch which now looks a picture.

And, I bought some elderflower wine (enjoyed in the garden) with a lovely smoked salmon salade and some fudge (naughty but nice) from the local gardening centre.

It was my holi DAY. I may have another holi DAY tomorrow and why not :) x

Great idea... I would rather holiday in my garden anytime, than pulling heavy suitcases about, then get exhausted afterwards. Have a good holiday Seaburngirl, the weather is very nice at the moment! :))

It's the best way to reap the rewards of all the care you put into a garden. Good on you :~)
Clothes can get washed and it makes a nice change to wear something special instead of gardening togs and as for the fudge and the salad Yummy .....
I get up most morniings and make a fresh pot of coffee then take it outside and just relax soaking in the garden. It's a little bit of heaven.

This lovely weather makes me feel less guilty for doing nothing for a few hours but sit in the garden with a nice cool drink and a book :)
