    Loving teh outdoor space in the summer months. We have a lot of strawberry plants but so far, nothing to show this year. I hope this will pick up soon. I don’t know if you have been following us on Instagram but we have hedgehogs in the garden! Most people sound quite excited but we are not! It’s the first time we are seeing hedgehog in real life and they look scary.
    Anyway, we have two rose bushes and we pruned them so they are flourishing too but I don’t know if we did it too late but we have no rose flowers yet.
    Happy sunshiny summer to you.

      hedgehogs are not scary, we had one come into the house one evening when we had left the patio door open! But we’ve also caught them on our security camera and I can’t believe how quickly they move, I always imagined them to slow like a tortoise. Some rose bushes can flower all the way through to Autumn so don’t give up yet.

    Sorry to hear that your apple tree didn’t arrive. We planted one last autumn and it seems to be doing ok although it has a lot of black flies on it. I’m spraying it twice a day with soapy water – hopefully it won’t die!
    I planted radish and carrot seeds at the weekend and am also looking forward to eating salad, tomatoes and berries from our new fruit bushes. Not a lot seems to be happening on our strawberry plants though :o(

    That rose is so beautiful and how lovely to have strawberries to look forward to. We have raspberries, wild strawberries and several types of roses in our garden and I’m trying to grow flowers to cut and take to Jessica. Hope that you get Little Man’s test results through soon. #MMBC

    The rose is beautiful! What a shame about the apple tree though.
    A clematis is a great choice. We’ve got three of them and they look stunning, although they take a few years to look that good.
    We’ve got so much growing in our garden now and I love it! It is appearing on my Instagram rather frequently now.
