Under The Hatch, Destination Unknown – AutoCrit Writing Challenge

I’m pretty sure this is the first time I’ve shared any of my actual writing on my blog that isn’t poetry but here we are, today I am going to share with you my entry for the Destination Unknown writing challenge on AutoCrit. The first line and last line were given to us and then we could write whatever we wanted for the rest of it, we just had to write 1000 words (or there about).

Spring In The Garden Part Two & New Plants

It’s actually National Gardening Week this week (run by the RHS) so what better time to update you with all the plants I’ve been planting in the garden over the past week or so. We actually got a lovely delivery of spring plants from Otter Garden Centre last week (it really made my week finding them online to buy!) it was like a mystery box style selection of plants with bulbs and compost… so here we are, new plants and a part two blog post of spring in the garden this year.

Autumn: The Garden In The Dark

I’m trying out something a little bit different to my usual ‘(insert season here) in the garden’ blog post today… autumn – in the garden, in the dark! Last month I wanted to take a quick photo in the garden when it was dark and decided to use my selfie light, then I thought why not see what a flower comes out like? And loved the result (if you want to see that one it’s on my Instagram) so when I had to go outside for something this evening as it was getting dark I thought I’d try and get a few more photos with my selfie light – this is the result.
