It’s all wildlife and natural earthy stuff this week.

Bumble bees working hard, ducklings on the pond, sparrow eggs in the plant area, deer eating our David Austin roses and the pigs are getting nice and heavy!

We have had another massive delivery of reclaimed teak and teak root furniture this week (I hope the sun shines soon). These decisions of which products to buy were all made during last winter when we were expecting a spring/ summer season!

We had a great day on Sunday with the Most Marvellous fair at the weekend. We enjoyed having customers from Northampton who didn’t know we were here, spread the word.

Got to do some Gardening. Ants are a real problem at the moment – Nippon products are one of the best for Ant control. Salt, boiling water, flour are some other ideas people use. If you have anything flowering in your garden, remove the dead flowers after flowering, this will encourage the plant to flower again.

Have a great weekend
