Jumping into Spring

  Wahoo, first day of spring! And we’ve woken up to rain boo. Good for the garden I suppose. We did get out yesterday and the girls had a lot of fun in our friends’ garden bouncing on the trampoline. I love a trampoline…

Winter Garden Play {Living Arrows 2/52}

We headed out to a local park to enjoy the bright day but within about 2 minutes, Imogen had fallen into a puddle, covering herself in mud (even her face) so we turned back round to home. After getting her changed, we went outside…

We’ve been lucky to spend quite a lot of June in the garden! Playing with the usual toys, drawing with pavement chalks, chasing bubbles, having real and pretend picnics and sliding into the paddling pool. There’s lots of colour at the moment, we planted…

Early summer at Myddelton House Gardens

We had our first family-of-four outing last Friday. Just a local trip to Myddelton House Gardens as we wanted to a) not go very far; b) have minimal financial outlay, as we didn’t know if we’d have to rush home if it all got…

Lots of sofa time snuggling my newborn means I’m watching a lot more TV than usual and last week MrS and I were glued to the BBC coverage of the Chelsea Garden Show. How times change, I was barely aware of the show’s existence…
