A proper, working nursery!!!




I've just returned from the nicest of nurseries!

It's a little place on the River Dart...Staverton Bridge Nursery.




This cheery sight greets you as you wanter through to the cafe.




And dotted all over the place are vintage bits and pieces...

all needing a home!





So, come with me and enjoy the wander!



























I didn't want to leave!




I did come home with a few bits and pieces, which I will

show and tell another time!

Act 2 !



So, the show goes on.


(And I always thought that Agatha Christie's  'The Mousetrap' 

was long running!)






This is the area where I spend many pleasant hours. 

I can 'pot up' to my heart's content in this happy place.







I've been repotting all of my herbs in order to give them

a new lease of life. I love herbs but I especially

have a passion for Thyme!





These are Primula Vialii.

They die right off in the winter and just when you think

that you might've lost them, up they come.

It's one of my favourite Primula.




I have a kind of trug fest going on here! Or a trug ' love in!'

I bought them at a Winchester market, a couple of years ago.

I love their colours... and don't want to dirty them...yet!!






Meanwhile...








This is my 'environmental area...some might say that it resembles

 a junk yard but it's a corner of the garden where I really wanted

 to re-useand re-purpose all sorts of things 

which I feel still have some life left in them.




It's a haven for all sorts of mini beasts, all quietly getting 

on in their own sweet way.











And in the front garden...




...these little beauties just don't want to make their exit!

I'm amazed at their longevity!










So, it's all going well, right now!






Time for some more seed sowing, methinks!





You reap what you sow...is my motto!

Happy gardening! ;-)
