Last weekend we took a trip to the Hampton Court Flower Show. We hadn’t had a chance to go for a few years, so it was great to go again and bask in the heat, great garden displays and all that was on offer. It certainly didn’t disappoint (apart from being a little too hot!).
I was on a mission to purchase some floxgloves – whilst we don’t have a typical cottage garden, I do draw a lot of inspiration from those who cram their gardens full of glorious cottage garden plants – for me foxgloves have to feature!
What we do have is quite a large ‘woody’ area so foxgloves are well suited to it. I did purchase a couple and they now take pride of place in the garden.
Our 3 water butts are now completely dry of rain water so now resorting to tap water for the poor old plants which are positively melting in this heat – even my lavender who I thought liked dry conditions are even struggling!
We can’t complain though as Autumn, the cold and Winter will soon be upon us.
Speaking of those seasons, I am in the process of making some new Autumn/Halloween and Christmas goodies – these will be uploaded to the Seasonal Page as soon as time permits!
