When the days are warm, it’s a good idea to take indoor plants out in the garden and place them in the shade of bigger plants.

I untertook a whirling dervish dance of spring pot shifting yesterday, as the weather was glorious at last :

In the yellow pot in the background, I’m growing a plant which produces edible flowers. I’ll have to dive into a recipe book when I have enough, for I have never eaten one before . Suggestions welcome !

Here is another example of a funky container I found in the Emmaus Charity sale – I haven’t got a clue what it is supposed to be originally :

why a handle ? !!!








now invested with some plants...








Everywhere in the garden, flowers are showing their true colours, and here is a selection of what can be found :

clematis and wisteria entwined

    I have never had edible flowers before!! Did you try them yet? What are they like?

      they don t really taste of anything actually ! I believe it s more for the show… A little bit on the sweet side for some, bitter for others. My friend uses them to add colour and a surprise effect to his salads or ice creams
