Mums green fingers :)

I came over to my mums this weekend as its been a while since I saw her. She was out when I got there so went to my sisters who was out in the garden with the kids. She had spent ages sorting her garden out and it was starting to take shape (forgot to take pics but am sure you will find some here). She even got the kids to join in (who I’m sure were making more mess than helping). I decided to give her some time to do her garden quietly so took the boys back to my mums.

I saw how pretty my mums garden looked so went out for a closer look. My mum loves spending time gardening and I’m sure is a time for some peace and quiet for her. People always comment on how lovely the garden looks, especially in summer when her work is in full bloom. Here is some of what she has growing at the moment…

She also loves planting foodstuffs that she often uses in her cooking..

While I was around I offered to take her to homebase to get her gardening bits as now was the time to plant and garden (being spring and all…even though its still not quite evident). We drove to the local Homebase as mum was in her element! It was like a kid in a candy shop she was darting around picking up and swapping all sorts of green leafy things, I even lost her a couple of times! Here’s what we got…

Mum was chuffed and I was glad to have helped. That evening she made a gooooooorgeous meal, all the family enjoyed each others company and I went home with a belly full of happiness šŸ™‚ I also went home with a lovely silver ring my mum had bought and given to me too….thanks mum! X
