Well, with just a week away from the very first workshop, all is in place and ready to go. Both Robin and I will have some of our handmade little bits on display on the day in both scales, some of which can be purchased. However, they will be there mainly to illustrate the kind of "feel" that we are trying to achieve with our whole series of workshops, serve as inspiration for you and give a hint of things to come !
Even old kitchen utensils have a place in our kind of garden!

Our kind of garden is not of the formal kind ...oh most definitely no ......but very much of the informal variety where everything is relaxed and time stands still. We have visions of a rambling, slightly unkept kind of country cottage sort of garden but at the same time, a very much loved one.
The old garden tools maybe a little on the rusty side but we like to think they have been well used!

The paint on the picket fence may be in need of  a lick of paint, tools might be a tad rusty, weeds may be very much at home but amongst everything is a lovely, calm paradise of the old fashioned variety. 

Yep, rusty bits are in abundance!

In our kind of would even have time to chat over the fence to the neighbour, probably moaning yet again about the British weather and sharing tips on terminating slugs, with a mug of tea in one hand and a trowel in the other....aaah!
A discarded old kettle complete with birds nest......and a robin perches himself on an old bucket.
Wildlife is very much at home in our kind of garden. Birds happily nest wherever is convenient, even if it happens to be in an old discarded kettle.
This cockrel is "strutting his stuff " amongst the pots and bricks
There might even be an occasional chicken or cockerel.
Ice plants, sempiverens etc in stone planters and randomly growing amongst the rocks.
And finally.....we mustn't forget the variety of foilage and plants which would be found growing in all the nooks and crannies as well as properly assigned planters and stone sinks.
We hope you share our vision of this kind of garden.

If you would like to attend one of our workshops to tackle various projects, please check out our website and don't hesitate to get in touch with either Celia or Robin (contact details on website) if you need futher information.
