Friday Foraging


OK, so I've left it a little late this week to join in with Lou's foraging challenge for her Nature in the Home series. To be honest I was lacking inspiration but then my heart skipped a beat when I saw Karen's Kerria japonica and I knew instantly that I could find some spring treasures in my Mum's garden. Nothing gives me more pleasure than an hour or so of chat and coffee at my parent's home and on such a scintillating spring day I couldn't resist dropping by to catch up, bask in their conservatory and potter around their lovely established garden. I found Kerria japonica and so much more and my Mum wouldn't let me leave empty-handed. Plenty of spring pretties for my vintage bottles and my new garden. I just love the pastel shades of Forget-me-knots and Pulmonaria. See little green shed for more spring booty.
