Bank Holiday Weekend

Hope you are all having a great Bank Holiday (UK) weekend? I’m having a lovely one: the weather could be a bit sunnier but at least it’s dry.

I’ve spent most of the weekend in the garden and my garden project is nearly complete, I’ll put a before and after up later on.

May 1st and Breezy Knees Gardens in Warthill are open again for the season. Lots of pretty blossom on the trees and lots of flowers in bloom. I can’t wait to see how the gardens change throughout the year. A quick video of part of my visit. Let me know if you want to see more like this.

A big THANK YOU to all who have bought me a coffee (donated) to keep my page up and running, it is much appreciated. If you want to make a one of ‘coffee’ please see the link at the bottom of the page.

The Weekend

Another busy day!

Today a bit of gardening. The cats are having a ball chasing leaves and exploring all the ‘new’ parts of the garden since I’ve cut back lots of plants!

A visit to the ever popular Living North exhibition had be drinking samples of rum, cocktails and wine at 11 o’clock in the morning! (Plus plenty of chocolate and biscuits).

The trees are looking stunning, All we needs is a huge gust of wind or a sharp front and most of the leaves will be on the floor.

More adventures tomorrow, a Textile exhibition and a Christmas Craft fair.
