Blog / Garden Ramblings...
I have decided to try to start a blog, to share information & images to give you a taster of whats growing now and what treasures you could have in your own garden.
So this is my first ramblings!
Welcome to my world of plants 💜
Autumnal delights: Misty mornings of dew laden spiderwebs was a spooky sight this week and made me excited at the thought of magical Halloween and beautiful bonfire nights.
This continues on the blog page, on Facebook or via an email if you would like to receive occasional seasonal inspirational info.
I have added Organic Ceramics to give you a glimpse of the garden sculptures & pots I create.
I have been creating a selection of new pots & sculptures and have Raku fired them with my friend & Sensei Ember Vincent.
