Flowers and office update

Grateful for bank holidays this side.  Been digging and planting daughter’s garden, putting up fences and hanging bunting.  Hands have taken a beating and back is aching, but all in the name of love. The update on my beautiful King Fiddle Leaf Fig is that he is doing really well.  I haven’t used the self-watering system yet as I was told he needs his roots to settle for 8-10 weeks before I can use it.  I'm glad to report he is still very much alive as are my other little plants!

This weekend my elephant print arrived, bought on Etsy.com which you can find here so promptly put into Ikea frame and hung on wall using these new-fangled Command strips – anyone else used them? I bought one packet from B&Q and the other from Amazon.  They are amazing, can’t believe they hold the weight they do, and I even tried removing the strips from the wall, and they don’t leave a mark! So much better than banging nails into walls.  

I've also been prettying up my office space with vases of pretty flowers. I think the mauve pom pom flowers are Allums, but I am not sure what the  frilly lilac ones are.  Sadly my gardening knowledge does not extend to the names of these flowers in both the green and the pink vase! I will endeavour to get better I promise.  I am sure most of you know so if you do can you please enlighten this ignorant soul so that I can make a note and head off to the nursery to buy a few of these plants for the garden!












Here's to gardening, flowers and DIY!
Hope you have a fabulous week whatever you are doing!
