Pottering about

Thinking about our new garden today, and realising how little I know about how to care for it. My gardening history to date has revolved around pots of basil and the odd tomato plant on many an apartment windowsill. Our house was empty for a few months before we moved in as the previous owners had emigrated to Australia.  As a result the garden has gone a bit wild.  It has lots of tropical plants in it and I kind of like it that way, all a bit crazy, but it seems a shame not to be able to even see the sunken table, never mind eat dinner at it!  Time to get green fingers...

This month I am joining in Susannah Conway’s August Break, sharing daily photos of my life this August. Why not check out who else is joining in, or have a go yourself?


  1. A sunken garden table? We must see pictures! Sounds absolutely magical. Gardening is easy! You will have a green thumb in no time at all. Best of luck in your new home.

  2. I agree with Lola - a sunken garden table?!!! Sounds like you have inherited something of a 'secret garden' - who's to say what gorgeousness you will discover or that begins to peep through all the tangle. Enjoy!!
