Today – Happiness in a Pot

I do love a nice pot and I do believe you can find happiness in a pot, garden s do not have to be a place of huge effort and expense and you do not need a huge piece of land. The humble pot can do its magic  and needs only the tiniest of places to perform its spell

They seem just far less work than the garden as a whole. Not that I got much help this weekend …my little helper seemed to think it was time to chill. Hmmm.


Professional ideas for happiness in a pot

Take a look at Alan Titchmarchs latest book on container gardening for more inspiration. You might also lie my post on indoor plants and why hiring them might be better than buying them.

Some of the pots I planted up earlier are growing beautifully.  I have very little clue the names of the flowers I [plant half the time so feel free to enlighten me!


I do know the bellis’s name however and it is so cheerful it makes me smile evrys uingle time I gree it


Osterpernums… just strange but pretty too!


Lavender has long been one of my most favourite plants


Runculus are I believe the most beautiful of flowers..so romantic

I have no clue what these pretty yellow flowers are called but  I adore them.



Our garden pots are making our lives so full of colour.

    they look really lovely, especially all together like that. I planted up a pot with a ยฃ5 bulb mix from Sainsbury’s and it is my pride and joy! We’ve had crocus and hyacinths and now the anemones are peeping through! x

    Lovely Becky – I’m a firmer believer that surrounding yourself with flowers really can make your life better. I wonder if GPs will ever give botanical prescriptions ?
    You’ve been such a busy bee – it really is a beautiful space you have – thank you for joining in again ๐Ÿ™‚
