A week in our garden

It has been a while since I showed you my week on Instagram and joined in with This Mummy Loves who does that too! I am also joining in with a newer linky called My Week over at Mummy Barrow.

We have  had a beautiful week of sunshine here in Nottingham and it has been rather lovely.

So here is our garden week.

On Monday my daughter serenaded me in the garden after getting her green Blue Peter badge and being completely delighted!  What a lovely start to to the week. I always wanted a blue peter badge.

Both my kids got a green Blue Peter badge this week . So excited! #bluepeter #green #eco

On Tuesday I put together a lovely tipi for my daughter and was so very proud I managed it buy myself!

Ta Da! #wigwam #ididit

On Wednesday I finally planted up our pots all pinks and purples , hugely satisfying if a little late in the day

Busy afternoon #garden #gardening #plants #planting #capturingcolour
On thursday I spent a large part of my working day in our giant paddling pool
There is A Lot to be said for working at home
On Friday I sat in the garden and watched the sunset at the end of a long and busy week  and just marvelled at its prettiness
Sunset #sunset #pink #sky
Saturday the children and I planted some freesia, iris and many other little bulbs. We have been sent 70 from Spalding bulb to celebrate their 70th anniversary ..cannot wait to see what next year brings for our pots!
Busy little gardeners #gardening #kids #planting
Sunday  I  thought I’d sunbathe and blog plan at the same time…let’s just say the sunglasses were optimistic
Watching the girls football training the sunglasses were optimistic to say the least! #girlsfootball #cloudy #captutrungcilour #soccormom
So a lovely week of sunshine in our garden. I am loving summer hope you are too.
