Our creative adventure began in 1999, a new house and a bare plot. In 2012 we opened for the NGS. https://www.ngs.org.uk/find-a-garden/garden/26064/

@carolgs @scaryskates I've never bought one but now have three in the garden that have appeared as tiny seedlings that I've grown on. Dropped by birds I reckon!

I’d give it a try, Gary. This is the best time of year to move or plant, so go for it 👍🤞😘 @scaryskates

Another unexpected find yesterday. I love the contrast between the leaf colour and the dangly bit. Is it a flower, a seed head or a bract? #himalayanhoneysuckle #leycesteria #naturesearrings

I think it's a bract 😉 The flowers are white and the seedhead purple and round 😉

A design for an earring, perhaps 🤔 #leycesteria #himalayanhoneysuckle #naturemeetsart #mygardentoday

Love this plant. It's the first plant I ever grew from a cutting in our first garden, from my FIL's garden 💕
