Alternative Flower Beds!!!!

On Saturday Gav took me to a fab garden centre that I hadn't been to before.
It was pouring with big fat rain, so we mostly stayed inside.
As we were on our way to the checkout with our basket of veggie plants we came across these unusual flower/plant arrangements.

A bed covered in plants, it really did look eiderdown like with the plants peaking out of their paper cones.


This arrangement in a toilet was funny, but I am concerned that I will come home to a version of it in my garden next week!!!
Gav took quite a liking to it as he is in the plumbing & heating business and has been talking about putting a water feature in the front garden!!!
So watch this space!!!
I'm off to Mum & Dad's tomorrow, hopefully we will have some beach hut fun as well as Grandma's Funeral.
Thank you to all for the wonderful comments and emails, It has really meant a lot to me.
Your words of support have been wonderful.
Luv & Hugs to all of you.

I have to say, Sophie, that your Gav has taste! I actually like that idea of his. I would love a toilet water feature in my front garden - we have gossipy curtain twitcher neighbours and everytime a curtain twitched, I would flush my water feature at them!

Sorry about your Grandmother.
Enjoy looking at the beach huts..x
