Cut flower vases, jugs.....

Thanks Dyers!  It was only £2! I love the fact that someone else has used and enjoyed it enough, not to throw it away but to donate it for someone else to enjoy.

Got to admit that I love a bit of chintz....my mum spotted this beauty in the window of a charity shop today and I just had to have it!

It was pretty manky inside but it's washed up a treat! They will have to be some pretty loud flowers to compete with this one! Maybe it'll be better for some nice fruit punch.

I LOVE it!

I use material ones with a spongy padding that attach with velcro straps. I hand washed them last week and they are fine.

Thanks Berghill. You know your stuff!

In very simple terms (for my small brain)  how should they be used differently in gardening, or do they do the same thing?

i ask because both are on offer in Aldi!

Watching the sun rise here. Bright red sun today and blue sky with the odd little cloud.  Rabbits playing in the field and the birds are tweeting away. Just lovely.

Gu pots and pringle lids.

Thanks Dinah - I do believe I have some half eaten sour cream and chive flavour Pringles lingering in the cupboard from Christmas!

Ooooh, beautiful Lupins Busy. 

Dont worry Steve, the walled part is a small bit of the garden with a big wooden 5 bar gate to the left followed with open country side beyond and an open arch to the right. We often get hedgehogs - they can certainly move. We didn't realise how quick they can run!

Thanks for the planting tips Verdun. I'll have to look some of those up as my knowledge isn't nearly wide enough!

Mixed colour lupins.

Thanks for the tips. Can't wait to get back digging at the weekend! 

Do you think I should out some curves in it, or will that conflict with the curve of the wall?
