The weather has taken a turn for the worse here in Essex, this week. No real surprise there, I know and I haven't let it spoil my week.
1. Firstly we have a guest this week at the Syders. Our eldest Daughter's best friend from North Devon has come to stay in Bertha the retro caravan for a week. It is so lovely to see her and our Daughter is beaming all day long because she is reunited with her dearest friend.
2. I finally planted out my summer baskets and I filled them with my favourites, petunia's and geraniums. I love the process of getting my hands in the soil and planting out. I find it so relaxing and so satisfying to see spots of colour dotted around the garden.
3.We have a new addition to the Syder garden. Harry the Gnome. Our youngest bought him for me as a little surprise gift and I love him. He is now in charge of my fruit and Lily area of the garden. His happy smile brightens my day.
