..the garden is my favourite place to be.
We are repainting the inside of the studio though…
…so I can’t work in there today.
I have lots to make for Open Studios this weekend….
I’ll be making inside the cottage though – the silver clay dries too quickly when I make things in the garden. I’ve tried it.
I shall have to make do with this tiny garden excerpt in the dining room.
Note: the exquisite willow obelisks in the first image were made by the stupendous Dottycookie. Her willow stick-bending skills know no bounds. If your delphiniums are in danger of toppling over she’s your woman.
Edited to add: I have linked up with Lou of Little Green Shed. I’m enjoying her Nature in the Home series immensely.

Hope the weather stays splendid or the weekend xx
Your garden is lovely! I may head out into mine this afternoon, I have the border on a crochet throw to do but it is far too hot today to be draped in wool!!
Such a shame you can't work in your beautiful garden! Hope the Open Studios go well, Helen
Lovely garden, lovely studio. Do enjoy the open days.
That Dottiecookie is so very clever.

Your garden is lovely, Emma. Good luck on your open studio. I just put up a blog post this morning showing our trip to an Indian reservation hot springs pool yesterday. I am not sure if you ever visit my blog. I have your blog on my link list, so I never miss one of your posts. Regards from Teresa in Oregon, USA

Your garden looks so fresh and cool and non-humid! (We are sweltering under a wave of humidity right now – but I must say my plants are loving it.)
What a beautiful place for a jug of flowers – that window cut out of the thick wall. Good luck with Open Studios. 🙂
It all looks so peaceful and ordered and lovely….

Your garden really is delightful, and the simple pleasure of bringing jugs of its bounty indoors must make it more so 🙂
