Garden inspiration

                                                                                                    ......but mainly for the allotment.

I was trawling through my vast collection of photos earlier today, partly because 'phew' I have a few and really need to have a sort out and partly because I was doing the old housework avoidance there any other kind?

That's not really a question, just me thinking out loud - anyway!

I came across some pictures - well quite a few if I'm being completely honest - that took me right back to Easter when we visited Snowshill Manor.  I think I may of mentioned it at the time and then 'vamoose' just like that, it went totally out of my mind - anyway......again!

Looking back at these pictures it reminded me completely of how I utterly fell in love with the garden (I'll post those another day) or gardening I should really say and how the plot was organised.

Plant supports made out of pruned (strong) branches - I've already started putting this into practise instead of using bamboo canes - and mini glass greenhouses that clip together and run along in a straight long line protecting and nurturing lettuce.  

I really must get some of these, but where to begin - I haven't a clue - I mean what would you actually call them? If you know then please do put me out of my misery as it's bugging the hell out of me where to even start looking. 

An orchard and fruiting trees fanned out across walls - my wish list from looking back at these pictures are endless.

I was and am totally inspired to say the least and like Veruca Salt (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) - I want it now!

But I'm not that bad so I will have to make do and muddle along in my own and jumbled beautiful way.

What are your gardening wishes or like me, do you just have a wish list?
