Hello to everyone again and welcome to my latest gardening blog
As some of you who watch Ideal World or follow me regularly on Facebook will no doubt know I have been away on a wonderful seven night cruise with Azamara Club cruises which was simply stunning and I feel very lucky to have been on such a lovely trip. I visited some great places but the photo I have picked from my travels shows some amazing bougainvillea I saw on a port call in Majorca.
Before I set sail I had loads of gardening to do at home but when I returned I was gobsmacked at how much everything had grown in just over a week – but I gather the UK weather has been really good – I know makes a change doesn’t it!
Luckily I had another day of holiday left at home before getting back to work which has really helped me get back on top of things. I am very pleased with my hanging baskets and pots this year as they are doing pretty well and are already quite big and full. I have also planted up three extra easy fill hanging baskets for my mum which I am dropping off to her on Sunday in York when I finish work . She has told me that the sweet peas I gave her a few months ago from the show are now in flower so I am looking forward to seeing them and having a good catch up with mum.
By the way I am delighted to say I am back on gardening this Sunday with the lovely Angela where we’ve got a pair of Best of British Roses and pots of English Lavender and we have our new event our Great British Summer Party! It should be a great weekend with lots of fun and summer ideas. The best thing though is £1 P&P on all items on the shows including gardening so I can’t wait!!
See you over the weekend hopefully, it’s nice to be back
