New look 'The orangery'. Now with balls...and lots of 'em.
Cyclone. A lightning flash of a scent. Love this.
Clematis....can't remember which....anyone?
Podophyllum 'Spotty Dotty'
Aquilegia vulgaris 'Double Pale Blue'
Matteucia struthiopteris (the shuttlecock fern)
Arum 'Miss Janay Hall'
so...a few days offline reduced me to working hard and allowed me to notice the changes in my garden.
I've been busy soaping...and plant sales are going nuts this year so packing orders has taken up a hell of a lot of time, which is fabulous.
The pics of the stuff going on this week I hope say it all...because I'm knackered to be quite honest!
I'd not blogged for a while, and thought I'd best give you something to look at before you forget me.
So...herewith the new look 'The Orangery'. One of my very favourite soaps. It's a beautiful blend of Sweet Orange, Cedarwood, Ylang Ylang & Cardamom. It has unrefined shea butter in it, along with soap balls in orange and green and drizzles of green soap, which I then swirled between the balls on the top. It's then sprinkled with orange peel & cardamom seeds, which I depod myself...a painstaking task!
The results I'm happy with. The lattice I used to do on this soap was nice, but not interesting enough. I hope people like its new look. I think it looks ace.
That's about it for tonight. 10.45pm and me eyes is closin'.
