sleeping on the job...

 When the bulb season has finished it gets a bit harder to find plants that are happy in our vintage containers...the hyacinths and little daffodils are perfect as they need a minimum amount of water and don't mind their roots being restricted.....summer plants are a bit less accommodating!!!
 this week we have some gorgeous miniature orchids  as well as phalaenopsis orchids planted in copper and stone....and we found these old french canisters last week which look lovely  with these little hydrangeas in ....



we have got gorgeous bright red geraniums and of course our usual herb planters.
We have ordered lilac plants for delivery tomorrow at a really good price so if you have a spot for one come and have a look at them.
On the flower side we have ENGLISH scented pinks and Sweet Williams by the bunch....
talking of something sweet.....our newest member of the team....sleeping on the job!!

See you all soon.........zzzzzzzz!!

Such a sweet new team member Martin. Congratulations! Your post looks really pretty!

Cow Parsley is one of my favourites too. I love mixing it in bouquets.

Wish you a happy weekend!
