Well, this is exciting. We’ve moved house, and I have a new kitchen windowsill to display garden flowers in a vase on Monday.
Naturally, I prioritised putting some flowers in to vases, and after we’d got the bed made and the kettle plugged in, I popped out to quickly explore our new garden.
There’s loads of white bluebells around, and a massive purple jasmine like plant – possibly St Vincent or Italian jasmine, but I’m not sure.
Perhaps one of Cathy’s gang of friendly gardeners, who share pictures of flowers in a vase on Monday, can identify it. I’ll share the post to her blog at Rambling in the garden and maybe get some hints.
The vases are a collection of Bristol blue glasses that I’ve picked up at car boots and charity shops. I love how they catch the light. The little glass bunting decoration was a gift from my husband, and the tiny cat was from his mum.
There are still dozens of boxes to unpack, snags to fix and shelves to be put up, but each time I pop back to the kitchen sink, these little blooms make me smile.
The new place is lovely.
There’s a fairly long list of snags to fix, but it has the most wonderful views.
The garden hosts blackbirds, butterflies, blue tits, crows, collared doves, and we’ve even seen a heron swooping down into next door’s pond.
I hope that your garden plans and plants are coming along nicely, that that all the moves you make turn out for the best.
