Reviewing 2017

As everyone is jumping on the #bestnine2017 tag to post on their Instagram feed, and getting in the prosecco ready for their evening celebrations (definitely need to do this before Tesco closes…) I thought it would be good to do another little round up of my year in the garden. 2017 has been chocka block…

Pumpkin Patchin’

Sundays are for chilling with your duvet, films and some good grub. However, Sunday’s in autumn are for searching for the ultimate pumpkin, drinking hot chocolate with a thousand marshmallows in, and watching Halloweeny films. This is what Matthew and I did this Sunday and it was bliss.   Getting a bit eager for Halloween…

Revisiting | Lizzie’s Garden

Hello and happy summer everyone. I’m still enjoying lovely, sunny days in Suffolk and have a beach-filled holiday booked in September to keep me going too! I LOVE gardens in the summer, when everything is in bloom and you can sit & relax in the evening! Unfortunately my own garden still isn’t at it’s peak,…

Know Your Onions

Apparently ‘know your onions’ is a well known phrase? I’ve never heard of it until now, but I enjoy it.  I’ve also never grown onions before, so a first for a few things in today’s post! Along with my onion sets, I tried my hand at garlic too. This was really exciting for me because…

Summer Love

I say summer love, but I’m having a real love-hate relationship with the garden at the moment. I’ve reached a super busy period of the year work-wise, so getting out in the garden is proving tricky. On top of that, I went off to GLASTONBURY festival (capitals needed) for a week and there happened to…

Cut ‘n Come Again

Summer days are coming! I love day dreaming about barbecues, pitchers of Pimms and bowls of healthy salads that are so close to becoming a daily reality. Work is well under way in my garden (and in my home with all my growing seedlings on the windowsill) in prep for some quality time out there…

Plotting

Spring is in the air! It’s so lovely to see everyone’s mood boosted from the sunny weather and longer daylight hours we’ve started experiencing! I’ve had such a busy schedule since January hit and some projects have started to finish, so now I’ve finally got some down-time before it gets crazy again with my new projects. Therefore…

Newbies

This year has launched into full swing-  no messing around. I’m working hard on all things dance and feeling great though. The weather has been so cold but so many days have been sunny and fresh – perfect winter weather in my books. Therefore I’ve been craving a day when I’m not working and I can…

New Year Resolutions

2017! It’s come around quick and I can honestly say this is the first year I’m really motivated to achieve big things. Last year saw exciting changes such as moving in with my boyfriend, starting a new job and setting up amazing projects for my dance company. A few things I’m hoping to tick off…

App-tastic

As most people in their 20’s, I’m somewhat attached to my phone. The fact it’s an iPhone really doesn’t help – so many apps to play around with, from BBC News to Snapchat. The great thing is, so many people are inventing 100’s of apps a day, all catering to different people and needs. I…

Wrapping Up

It has taken a few weeks for me to realise winter is actually on our doorstep. I have been so engrossed with autumn that I was ignoring the fact the temperature had dropped rapidly, and weather warnings concerning frosts and snow were coming more regularly (more in the north luckily). So I’ve finally got my…

A Year of Growing

This time last year I was just starting this blog – so much has changed and I cannot believe it’s been a whole year! I started this blog to keep a visual record of the happenings in the garden from when I moved in (as it was such a wreck, mainly concrete wreck), and I’ve loved…
