daily musings of a vintage addict * I am totally obsessed with all things vintage * trying to keep up with my past...and sometimes ordinary everyday life

My Photo
Name:
Location: Katoomba, NSW, Australia

here I am in a little cottage that evokes the energies of my ancestral lands - a cottage on the moors of Cornwall, or on the cliff tops of Ireland or Scotland. It has a hearth. I am a hedge witch {of sorts}. I wear upcycled clothes, patchouli oil and Redback boots. I am a gypsy; an eccentric and a mystic [I often live with a foot in two worlds]. I serve my guests, tea from an old silver teapot. I love Vervain, yarrow, chamomile & mint. Star watcher and Moon gazer. story cloth weaver. keeper of family dreams and wishes. good friend and creator of life. herbal tea drinker and potion maker.

Plan ahead and dream of all the beautiful things that life has to offer

vintage gardening ~ August 13

have lots planned in my garden today ~ a trip to the nursery this morning to buy some cottage plants... kind of refurbishing some of the gardens..
at my back gate there is a garden with a climbing rose on a trellis * I am planning on replanting that whole garden, leaving the rose of course but adding lots of feverfew * hollyhocks * rose campion and some other lovely perennials. * then from the back gate - I have a winding brick path to the back door...you walk through the arbor that dear Joe built me for an anniversary * along the path on one side, I have a rose garden with about 6 roses * all old-fashioned of course ! * and a mandarin tree planted ~ I want to plant society garlic all around my this garden and some *pinks* along the edge of my gardenia garden, which is right near the back step . After the windy weather of this week, I have lots of mulching to do as well.
I love this time of year in the nurseries...all the new seedlings in readiness for spring ... I need to get the garden right up to scratch for ms*louisa's wedding... she will probably have some photos taken in my garden before she leaves for the church..so I want lots of pretties...
