Lovely new plants for the garden.
I have a great fondness for hydrangeas
I spent a few hours making lists of what plants I wanted knowing that the majority wouldn't be available locally but I was able to get the type of lavender I wanted (Hidcote)
Even though my back garden is north facing it is sunny for most of the day....and being right by the sea I have tried to chose plants that can take the wind as well.
As I have been writing this post a lady in a beach towel has just walked past my window - it's quite normal for this time of year as there are an awful lot of sea bathers in the road!Anywhere else I think it would be considered very strange!
Stella has made the most gorgeous bag for her daughter.....she has posted a few photos over on Florence Hope -
