VIDEO: The Old Man of Coniston, Lake District

Over the course of Christmas and New Year, we had the honour and welcome of witnessing our good friends get married in the Lake District, and we couldn’t help but visit The Old Man of Coniston while we were there 🙂

The allotments of Berlin

This week I’m volunteering at WCEU which is being held in Berlin, Germany and I couldn’t go the whole week without squeezing in a teeny weeny bit of blogging while I’m here.

RHS Glow 2018 at Wisley

This week I was lucky enough to visit the Glow are RHS Wisley in Surrey.

RHS Wisley is the flagship garden for the Royal Horticulture Society and for someone who grows their own veg, it’s a real treat to go there – I simply don’t go there often enough. The great thing about Wisley is that it changes with the seasons, which means that each time you go – you really do see something new, and the best of the season.

The Glow is no exception. I’d never been to a garden whereby the combination of lighting and plants were the focus. It’s a great idea entice footfall to the gardens during the colder winter months – and it also breaks up the time between Christmas and New Year fantastically.
