We took a trip out to Bunkers Hill garden centre last Sunday to buy bedding plants for our garden. The weekend prior a dead tree came down bringing some fencing with it, smashing the patio and missing the flat by about 1.5 inches. Whilst this was a bit of a shock at the time, the upshot to this is an extra foot & a half or so of garden and a lot of wood chippings to use as mulch, so we decided to make a flower bed on the new bit of garden.
I do love it at Bunkers Hill, it's where we go every year to get our Christmas tree and I always enjoy pottering round. We spent quite some time in there wandering backwards and forwards trying to choose what to buy for our garden and cooing over plants we wanted but that were out of our price range.
It's been so lovely seeing our beautiful flowers in our garden when I get home from work, as well as admiring the beautiful Harry Grey fuchsia hanging basket that now takes pride of place outside my front door. A teeny strawberry plant that I bought via an honesty box on a day trip out to Goring & Streatley is bearing fruit, two juicy little red strawberries to be exact, and I couldn't be more proud.
I am loving my relatively recent foray in green-finger-ness and am looking to more plants, both indoor and out :)
Are you green fingered? Are you a plant mama? An avid gardener? Do tell! x
