Just because…

Just because...….it’s Spring, but cold, wet and miserable outside! so gratuitously Springlike photos are the order of the day – trees full of blossom and bees –  first ladybird and bumblebee sightings of the year – trees that are just made to climb and pottery sheds that need a new coat of paint this year are getting covered in animals – bear, stag, hare etc.Just because...Just because...Just because...Just because...Just because...

Bookshelf #3

Bookshelf #3One of my favourite gardening books – Gardening on Pavement, Tables and Hard Surfaces by George Schenk – not least because of the title but also because it’s full of amazing gardens that I can dream about creating.Bookshelf #3 We have a cat like the one in the photo above and a glass table top like the one below… I think that if we had the beautiful trees as well the cat would be most probably sat in the middle of them or use them as a scratching post.
