Blooming hard work.

Good evening all.
I hope you are all well.
Today me and hubby have brought a manual lawn mower and for the first time in too many years I have been able to mow the lawn.Because our electric mower gives off so much spray I was unable to mow but now there is no stopping me and hopefully the manual mower will make my lawn healthier.
We also brought some new cushions for my sofa and then I have been busy planting my new plants out.
So here are some pics.
I won`t bore you all with descriptions, just lots of photo`s :D









































The only plant that is not in the garden yet is a Rainbow Buddleia as I need to uproot one of my hebe`s first.

And a pic of my new cushions,I decided to add an orange coloured cushion for a bit of contrast,the other orange one is on my chair ;D
Thanks so much for popping by,
My blog will be barren tomorrow as my poor arms know that they have mowed so we are having a chilling night together tonight.I will be back with a card on Saturday, fingers crossed.
Hugs Nic.

So many lovely plants Nic and your garden will be a riot of colour in a few weeks. The clematis you have growing round the drive area is fabulous, a beautiful specimen. Thanks for sharing these lovely pics.

Love all the wonderful pictures Nic. Your flowers and plants are wonderful and your couch looks great! I especially love the giant flowering bushes that look like the car is hiding in them - fun and pretty. I am amazed you used a manual mower - that is some good exercise! Relax and recover fast! Hugz

The photos are a delight to see, Nic, they don't need words.

The cushions are very contemporary, I've seen lot's of warm orange and that lovely green colour in shops and mags lately.
