Lollipop, lollipop......

V. busy in the garden at Snowdrop towers at the moment.

It's 'open gardens' time again - I mentioned it in a past blog here, and two years has passed very quickly.

From my bedroom window it looks blooming marvelous......

but up close and personal it looks in need of some urgent care and attention.

Nice but bit lazy gardener has gone AWOL, so its all hands on deck to knock it into shape before we open the garden gates on the 22nd of June - I've even had to acquaint myself with the power hose...... but I digress......

My perfect garden would be very formal. I love the form and structure of box hedging, and I don't need a lot of colour - perhaps a touch of white from a lacy viburnum......

Or an old favourite Hydrangea......


In this case Hydrangea Annabelle.

But pride of place would go to topiary specimen in the form of 'lollipops'.

Me - I'm off to continue my weeding!

Hope you have a lovely week,

Line them up......

Whilst I'm probably on the other end of the spectrum to Julia Robert's husband in the film 'Sleeping with the enemy' - (read lazy!), I can't help feeling a little bit of joy when I see rows of jars neatly stored on pantry shelves......

Aren't they wonderfully ordered?

What type of girl (or guy) are you?......

Line them up neatly, or throw them in and close the door?!

Hope you have a lovely week,

Our beloved Wisteria has made an appearance once



She gets many an admiring glance over the garden wall......


And this is just the start of a Summer long show.

Here are some more magnificent examples of the wonderful Wisteria......

Make mine a Margarita......

Do you love drinks trollies?......

I think there is something incredibly glamourous about them......

Sure, they may be a little bit kitsch......

Or super stylish......

And a tray would do just as well......

But where's the fun in that!......

Hope you have a lovely weekend,
