Garden goodness

Hope you appreciate that I had to scale the climbing frame one handed to take this photo of my favourite garden corner right now.

I love this patch and the Alliums are perfect.

Got so enthused that I was forced to go to the garden centre and buy even more plants. Here's the chief hole digger of the house ready to get stuck in and plant them.

I felt really sad the other day when one of my blog-chums thought I only had one son. Guess my posts are a bit Mark heavy - get used to it Johnny, that's being the second child for you!


But just to even things up, here's a photo of Johnny doing what he's always doing when I'm creating...

Love you Johnny-bean.

It's so much fun to see a spring garden when winter is about to start.

Aleeping kids - nothing more beautiful in the whole world.

I have the same thing with my boys, for me the youngest is more interested in what I do, so he gets mentioned the most. The eldest is an 'inventor', so I'm of little interest!

Could your boys be any cuter? And your garden...mmmmmm. Heavenly.

I know, I know, my second got sort of neglected, then when the third came along, he was the baby so #2 got neglected even more! It's that middle child thing for me, but I felt it when we only had two. He's a precious boy - so good to take a nap for you!

Your alliums are lovely!

Mine are way past their prime, gone from purple to silver and now a burnt green ready to be deadheaded.

And you are so lucky to still have a child that naps. I miss the napping.

beautiful garden shots and sweet boys. I can never take a photo of sleeping Keely because I know she'll wake up! Momma don't want that!

what's that bushy bit growing at the base of the irises? the green and the deep dark...

we are in the throws of planting. its an extension of craft, i think.
