My day started with us both standing in a big blue box (not at the same time) and saving our water, we watered our flowers, veggies and hanging baskets. I washed my hair today (don’t fret….I use Faith in Nature, so all eco) , which took twice as much water as yesterday. I’m not sure how this is going to work when I’ve got seconds to spare as I have to leave for work at 6.30 am? I may only get to save water at the weekends or I’ll have to get up even earlier.
We had a fun morning as the local cricket club had a car boot sale this morning. After all the shenanigans of bucketting water around the house and garden, we arrived at 10.30 to find the sale in full swing. I bought…..
a red bucket for 10p, it will be all part of my water and money saving plan.
I bought a 50cm high shrub, exactly the same as the one in the photo. I paid £2.50 for that.
I bought a foxglove for £1.
I also bought a kilo of rhubarb for £1……………delicious stewed and eaten with custard. I’m trying to fill the garden with beautiful plants and I’m obviously doing that by spending as little money as possible. The foxgloves grow really well in a shady spot and my ‘front’ garden is north facing, spends most of the day in shade and will look wonderful with a border backed with tall foxgloves. The shrub/Weigela Florida Variegata will thrive in the warm sunny front garden which is in full sun, all day long. I think I had a good morning for £4.60. What have been your star purchases from jumble sales or car boot sales recently?
