Now the April issue of the Bustle & Sew Magazine has been safely sent out to all my lovely subscribers, I have a little spare time – and so it’s time to begin preparations for our wedding wildflower garden at the front of Coombe Leigh …
Here’s my house – this picture was taken last February so there’s nothing to see in the garden at all (it was a cold, late spring last year). But this June there will be a garland of roses on the front door (possibly even a rose archway over the gate) and the flower beds will be filled with wild flowers – daisies, love in the mist, and lots more too. I don’t know exactly what as my friend Jacqui (Flapdoodledesigns) is a very keen and expert gardener who has taken charge of the project. At the moment she’s busy raising lots of baby seedlings to plant very soon indeed ….
And this is how Jacqui’s garden looked last summer …..
So I’m feeling very confident – at least for the front garden! We had hoped to have wildflowers at the back too – but – there’s a large black furry problem! Having watched everyone hard at work preparing the beds at the front earlier this week – young Miss Daisy decided to “help” too. She’s not allowed in the front – so obviously decided to make an extra effort in the back garden …..
Oh dear … I’m not sure that wild flowers will survive her efforts – we’ll have to think of something else. She looks so pleased and proud of herself though, it’s hard to be cross.
Thanks for all your help Miss Daisy!
