New Plants & Pretty Flowers – Part 1

We’re in the process of giving our garden a bit of an overhaul/make-over at the moment so a lot of new plants are being added, we went to the garden centre again today and picked up quite a few more plants (we basically came home with half the garden centre haha). I thought I’d split this into two posts because some haven’t been planted yet, we didn’t get home until nearly tea time and it gets dark before 7 now so we didn’t have time to put them all in, there was rather a lot to sort out in one go anyway!

Places To Go Walking: Stover Country Park

Stover Country Park is one of my most favourite places to go walking, after going there for the first time in 2013, I’ve been back several times since. It’s pretty local too which is great, I really don’t know why we didn’t start going there sooner.

One of the best areas is a walkway which takes you round to where there’s a bird feeder hanging, birds pop in and out to feed there all the time. The squirrels feed on the ground (you can see them climbing the trees around there too) I’ve seen birds there I haven’t seen anywhere else.
