My Teasel plant is nearly fully grown. I am waiting impatiently as usual. I love them so much. The seed heads on these are big and spiky once fully mature and can be used as decorations around the house. Oh my goodness stop being a tease hurry up and grow! The tiny Woodland strawberries are… Continue reading Teased by a Teasel
People look at me like I am crazy when I tell them I don't mind the rain. It means everything smells glorious in my little garden. The honeysuckles heady scent wafts through the cool air and I breathe it in savouring every last particle. The best thing is the little visitors that also like the… Continue reading Visitors
