Pottering....

Yesterday I spent the day pottering in the garden, all the bedding plant's were past their best and had to come out....




I got lot's of seed's from the nasturtium's for next year....




This is the last of the sweet peas in this little glass jug, sweet peas are so summery....




And there was enought lavender to fill this wire trug and a vase, it smell's lovely as you walk past it....




All this went into the "brown" bin to be collected by the bin men....




Along with two hanging basket's and lot's of patio pot's so now I'll have to go to the garden centre for lot's of heather's and pansie's to fill them all up again





I thought these two had been quiet all afternoon... they'd gone upstairs to bed!!!! naughty naughty....

Hi Lucey,
Thanks for the comment, sorry I have been very slow in getting back to everyone and didn't have a chance to check out your blog last time. It looks fab I love the name and layout. I think lavender might perhaps keep its smell longer if its in a jar, but it looks really pretty how you've got it xxx

Sweet Peas are one of my faves! I need to do my autumn tidy ups on our gardens but I feel it's pointless until our trees have dropped all their leaves. Our dog creeps upstairs to get on our bed too! Very naughty :)

The end of summer garden is quite sad isn't it? But it is a good opportunity to plant some bulbs for spring...,which reminds me that I have some that I need to plant!

Naughty pups made me smile - that's exactly what Toby does except he burrows under the duvet & thinks I can't see him there!
