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
Location: Culburra Beach , NSW, Australia

I live in Australia, my ancestry is in Cornwall. a Celt. a hedgewitch of sorts. I am an Earth Healer. I wear upcycled clothes, patchouli oil and Redback boots. A gypsy. An eccentric. a mystic. I am a searcher, a seeker, a pilgrim on Earth. I serve my guests, tea from an old silver teapot. I love Vervain, yarrow, chamomile & mint. I love to dream, to walk and to wonder

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...
