spring garden.

Back at the begining of the year I watched the series life in a cottage garden with Carol Klein.Her attitutude to gardening is infectious and I was thouroughly inspired.

For the first time this year I bought a couple of packets of seeds.Lupin,Dahlia,Foxglove and Sunflowers. I thought I d give it a go. My mum gave me her old  small greenhouse that she wasnt using and I got started.

And look whats happened for the first time in my life I ve actually grown something,now lets just hope they get some flowers some where along the line!

 It will be a lot cheaper than buying plants from garden centres .
 Its the little things in life that are exciting me at the moment.Has anyone out there been planting seeds this year?
I loved one of the thrifty tips on Nana Go-go s site yesterday, keeping lolly pop sticks to use as markers and keeping yougart pots and tubs to use as planters,I d already been doing this ,but kept hubby s lolly stick last night.Brilliant!

Have a great day,lots of love ,
