I'm in the garden!!!!!

Photo taken Sept 2008

I so look forward to our lavender "hedge" flowering each year... I love how it attracts lots of insects and honey bees and the beautiful perfume wafts across the garden in the summer warmth.

I haven't been about for the past few days as I am in the .... garden!.  So much work needs to be done after the severe Winter.  A few plants didn't make it through and I am busily replacing and replanting.  Also, the weather is stunning here at the moment.

Here's a photo of our back garden when we moved into our home in 2004
Here's what it looks like now (photo taken in 2008!) need to update now that everything is bursting into bud.
Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a great day and hope to have some cards to share tomorrow.
