Thank you to journalist, photographer and gardener Penny Harrison for featuring my ramshackle country garden on her new blog A Little Gentian. Isn't that a lovely blog name? You can take a look at the post here: http://alittlegentian.blogspot.com.au/2014/05/gardens-textile-designer-illustrator.html

There is a lot going on outside my window farm wise - all of the tractors are busy spraying paddocks in readiness for sowing the winter crops. Here are a few photos of my version of farming throughout the seasons for a UK bed linen customer!

Here are a few shots from the garden and my new salvia patch - I seem to have unintentionally settled on a purple and red colour combo for some reason.
I have just finished planting spring bulbs in random spots around the garden, in keeping with my Nana's gardening style. So far I have added alliums, snow drops, blue bells, white daffodils and Arab's Eye lilies, lots of good drawing material for new designs!

If you are on the look-out for new bed linen and in need of some inspiration, check out the Cottonbox blog where I will be posting regularly on the latest trends and new releases in children's and adult's bedding designs available from the Cottonbox website. I have my eye on the beautiful Florence Broadhurst collection, but am finding it hard to narrow down my selection to just one design!

I love this time of year - the long hot summer days have slowly petered out and the garden here has more plants in flower than at any other time of year. While I have only a few varieties of Dahlias, after seeing these beauties today in Bendigo's Rosalind Gardens I might have to order a few more colours and varieties for next year's crop.
