Pinky purple stocks bought very cheaply from the supermarket ... they smell divine and tend to last for over a week ...
French Lavender, next to my front door, a haven for butterflies and bees on a sunny day ...
A pot of supermarket Basil planted in an old olive oil tin prolongs its life rather than just leaving it in its plastic pot. Looks good too!
Pot of bright red geranium used as a door stop ...
Bunch of Aquilegia, Lemon Balm, Chives and something I don't know the name of picked from the garden this morning ... notice I don't really go for fancy vases in my house!
Fading Bluebells in a 50p thrifted pot (bargain!). A friend brought me these from her garden so don't worry I haven't been picking from the wild, even though it is very tempting! These are almost finished but I'm drying them out and saving the seed so that next year I can have a patch of Bluebells of my own!
Am sure the eagle-eyed members can spot the fakes (I think there are two).
I'm approaching 50 followers (can't believe it!) and I'm going to host a giveaway when I reach that magic number, so keep popping in to check while I gather a few goodies together!
PS: I'd like to take this opportunity to apologise to all my loyal followers, I've been reading blogs for several years now, and have thought that I have been a 'follower' on many blogs, but have actually only been a reader! I haven't been clicking on 'join this site', instead I have been copying the URL at the top of the blog and pasting it into my blog list, but this doesn't make me a follower. I have just been right through my blog list and have hopefully put this right now. You must have thought that I was awful, very arrogantly acrruing new followers, but not actually 'following' anyone! So sorry ... xxx
Have a lovely week!
Love, from Claire xxx
