Fairy lights [from Christmas a few years put up and then decided too nice to take down] add a warm romantic atmosphere…

I have recently planted Calendula and am now growing a second crop of cucumber plants.

I plan to up-cycle as many containers as possible and grow more herbs, flowers and veg. I would love to get a few small trees to put in large pots [until I have my own garden] and put in some tall bamboo to add some essential shade.

More ideas to follow in the near future! 🙂
