Flowers for Alice coming along nicely..


By sandra


Some of u know we are hosting our sons Alice in wonderland inspired wedding at the end of the month and unusually for me I am growing flowers! My garden is very foliage led so it’s been a steep learning curve .

The daliahs have started to do there thing!

I have been waging a war on the slugs and I am going to give the daliahs a big feed this weekend just to boost them up a bit.

The salvias I was given are loving their new home they have grown huge!

Not sure of the varieties but I think they are tender but for now I am enjoying them.

I have tried to include surfinias into the plans as they bring so much colour.

Even edging my veg bed with them.

This young lady still has to get her face done for the day!

And well we had to have a few succulents!

Just a few more t pots to do fresh arrangements on the day

With everyone helping even more now I am laid up with sciatica, it’s all in hand and I can’t wait for the big day…thanks for reading…?

Looks like there wlil be enough pots of tea for all of us - if they don't get filled up with succulents first...
Its good to know you are having lots of help.
