Project 365: Week 44

Well we made it to November! I can’t believe how fast the year is flying by. Here’s our week in pictures… Day 299 – Sunday 26th October – my daughter and I travelled to an away game to see my eldest play rugby. It was a good game, but they got narrowly beaten. Day 300 – Monday 27th October – I had 100 bulbs to plant and a lot of weeds to get up! The kids gave me varying amounts of help. Day...

The Gallery: (The garden in) Autumn

I noticed the other day that we seem to have blossom on our front garden. There are three bushes – I have no idea what they are – and they all have what appears to be blossom on them – there’s a red one, a white one and a pink one. Does blossom even exist in autumn?

I genuinely...

How does your garden grow: The new flowers

I’ve shared a fair few photos of my beautiful garden, both here on the blog and on Instagram, but they’ve only ever been on one side of the garden. The beautiful side still had a fair few weeds, but it also had all of these lovely flowers and colour. But the OTHER SIDE?! Oh my goodness! I suspect, due to the canes which looked like they once had beans growing on them, that it had been a vegetable garden at one time. But...
