Dead heading required!
I have been known to garden in pearls and a dress....this is usually when picking roses for a bouquet or enjoying a walkabout before going to or hostessing an event...peeking for the odd weed that might need to be plucked.
Yesterday, it was not a pearl day, I was in full on assault gear, waging a war on the weeds, aka "guerilla gardening" in the Humble Bungalow Garden. Gloves, garden clogs, sunscreen...weeds had taken over and there was a huge amount of debris to be cleared...it took over 4 hours to trim the edges, weed and rake and tidy up for spring.
Part of my routine is savouring how the garden looks after the blitz.
Yellow blooms are so cheerful!
Birds of a feather....
Bowling ball and shell...a bit of whimsy.
It is early February and we are 3 weeks ahead in the blooming schedule as the weather has been so mild. It won't be long before I will be picking flowers to bring inside the Bungalow.
One of my favorite things to do is create lavish bouquets using a variety of foliage and flowers and pop them into vintage vases and conatiners and place them around the house.
I can hardly wait!
What are you waiting for?
