I hope you all enjoyed Mother's Day last weekend? I certainly did, and guess what? I actually had a card this year from Chris to accompany the beautiful flowers which I'm lucky enough to get every year.
I love flowers, especially fragrant ones, and I really enjoy the spring and summer when I can cut them from my own garden and bring them indoors to brighten up the house.
Speaking of gardening, I FINALLY got out there last weekend with my Mum, who is always a great help. She cut back the roses and fuchsias and dug over the flower beds (just with a trowel, before you start imaging her wielding a huge fork or spade!). All that inspired me to trim the privet hedge and the hydrangeas, and to plant up my Babylon Bowls with some primulas.
There's still lots to do so I'll definitely be watching, and hopefully presenting, some shows with Richard Jackson over the coming months, searching for inspiration. I normally just put Busy Lizzies in the various hanging baskets I have, but this year I fancy trying something new… any ideas?
While we were out in the sunshine in the garden we noticed that the blue tits are back, and this year there seems to be two couples nesting in the bird house – perhaps they're setting up a birdy commune!
Look forward to being with you over this weekend with the Elemis Mini Series, Northern Nights and DuWop cosmetics, which I'm looking forward to at 6pm on Saturday evening.
