my garden this week









The garden is my favourite place to be this week, it is full of sunshine, roses, baby sparrows and baby frogs! The roses are all old fashioned climbing, picked for their scent and as I am watering the garden in the evening it smells wonderful.

We haven't had sparrows in the garden for several years, I don't know if that is the case across the country? But it is so lovely to have them back there are two families, each with about five babies and they are eating so much bird food from the bird table.

The baby frogs are everywhere I even found one on Harry as he was laying in the veg patch(!).

Lastly I treated myself with some birthday money to this gorgeous apron from Beth at The Linen Cat.  For those of you who haven't read her blog (I can't believe there are many!) pop over and see the wonderful things she makes.  My apron is so well made and such good quality it will last forever.  I feel like a fifties housewife in it and am tempted to put my hair up and wear stilettoes whilst cooking, maybe one step too far!

That's all this week really, hope you all have a lovely weekend and this beautiful weather continues.  I'm off for another birthday lunch tomorrow, then that will be the end of the celebrations honestly! x

  4. The summer light injects so much life into photos doesn't it. Love the pinny. What variety is the magenta rose? It's beautiful. We have wild heavily scented roses round the lake next the farm, but with huge thorns!

    1. hello Pats and welcome to Haggiz. I'm afraid I don't know the name of the rose I've so many people ask over the years and I've never found another one like it. It sounds heavenly having a lake with scented roses next to your farm - I can put up with huge thorns if they smell nice! Jx

  10. Thank you so much for including the apron and mentioning the blog. It's a very nice thing to see your things in their new homes, I have been wearing my red apple one all morning as I'm cooking up the blackcurrants (jam, ice cream and cassis as a start), not the best idea in this heat, but it has to be done - I'd rather be in the garden!
