I've had a busy day gardening today but not in my own garden. My niece, Louise, moved house on Saturday and to say her new garden was a mess is and understatement. I think the previous occupant did nothing at all, the weeds were knee high and the few shrubs and trees there are all dead ...there was not one garden flower to be seen! A truly sad site. My husband and I spent five hours strimming, weeding and clearing the garden. And that's just phase one!
But before we left I found time to nip into our garden and pick a little posy as a wee gift for Louise to welcome her into her new home. It included the first rose of the season and I did remember to pop it into a vase and photograph it before we left the house to join in with Cathy's In A Vase On Monday meme.
Although I did check out everyone's vases last week, and thought they were all truly beautiful, I'm sorry to say I was unable to leave a comment on them all. Hopefully, this week I will be more successful.
It's late, almost 11pm UK time, and I'm absolutely tired out after all that gardening so I'm off to bed but will be checking out your vases throughout the next few days ... wouldn't miss it for the world :)
