Spring in my step...

A couple of weeks ago Clive and I went to a local flea market,
whilst driving through the stalls to park the van,
something caught my eye...
It was the most beautiful vintage french wire work plant stand.
Of course I assumed it was going to be incredibly expensive,
but wanting to put my mind at rest I sent
Clive over to ask the price,
I was more than surprised when Clive informed
me of the very fair asking price...
So, with the last of my birthday money clutched tight in my hand,
I dashed across the field to buy it
before someone else got there first,
(I must add, that 'dashing' is not an easy task whilst
wearing my 'designer' wellies!)...
luckily I got there in time and I eagerly
passed the money over to
the stall holder whilst squealing with delight, It was mine!...
This Sunday turned out to be the most beautiful day,
so I set up the potting table in my new garden
(well more of a jungle at the moment!)
and got to work potting up some primroses and
daffodils into the Victorian terracotta pots
I have 'borrowed' from my grandma's garden.

I'm very pleased with the end result, the spring flowers look so pretty, I cant wait to add to it over the next few weeks...

I hope your all having a good week so far...

I love the banner on your blog. I can't resist terracotta pots and it's lovely to see them full of colour after the grey winter we've had.
