A Treat for Me

After being inspired by all the gardening going on in blog land I thought I would take myself off one of my favourite local garden nurseries.

So I bought some pretty pansies and sweet peas, some broccoli, beetroot, oregano and a new pot for my jade plant on the front porch.  It's funny how we change what we consider to be a treat for ourselves, gone are the days of wanting to spend hours shopping these days I'd much rather be spending hours gardening or crocheting.
So this weekend you'll find me here tidying up my garden that needs lots of tlc at the moment, if the weather allows me I'm crossing my fingers.

Have a wonderful weekend


  1. Oh, have a lovely weekend outdoors and enjoy your new plants. Here is hoping for good weather.

  2. Enjoy your garden time! Looks dreamy :-)

  3. it looks wonderful. i hope the sunshine stays your way. i too prefer to be doing the same these days. its good for the mind catherine. enjoy. xo.

  4. I used to love to just wander the nursey...until the twins came along and now i spend all my time stopping them from collecting all the plants!
    Still love to get out there and plant though and looks like you have some great picks there...a fun time ahead in the garden this weekend for you...enjoy!

  5. There is no happier place for me than the nursery. All those possibilities! x

  6. Sounds like a lovely weekend planned......enjoy :)

  7. I love wandering around nurseries wondering how and what with I can pretty up our garden. I have some sweet pea seeds soaking on our bench at the moment actually ready for Grace and I to plant when she wakes from her nap.

    I like the pot you bought. I know what you mean about your definition of 'treating yourself' changing - buying something for myself thesedays nearly always is something 'homely' rather than 'personal' :) Enjoy your weekend xx

  8. I agree, would much rather be gardening, cooking or crafting :)It looks like you had lots of fun :)

  9. We're heading into the garden this weekend too.

  10. Have fun planting Catherine. I was starting to think about planting veggies up here this weekend - but the rain is back so I'll have to wait a little longer!
    I too would never have thought buying plants and seeds would be a treat for myself - but it is!!
    Hope all is well with you and your family!
