4 easy-to-grow garden flowers that didn’t cost a penny!

On Saturday, I cut the grass for the first time this year.

I wouldn’t go so far as to call our grass a lawn

as it’s full of moss and and other assorted plant life.

It’s just a patch of cut grass for the garden chairs when the weather is warm enough for sitting out and enjoying the sunshine.

and I’ve left them uncut to see what happens next as suggested in The Guardian.

As well as the daisies, our garden has several other very pretty flowers all provided free by Nature.

I haven’t planted them and don’t know where they’ve come from. I’ve been told they can become prolific and take over all the available space. They’re behind the garage where the soil is extremely poor so I don’t mind if they do go on the rampage.

This little beauty has made itself a home

between the rocks bordering the path.

Thanks for  stopping by my blog today.

For over thirty years I worked in British primary education as a class teacher and then as head teacher of four different schools. I retired early about ten years ago and have developed an interest in e-publishing as well as writing. In addition to my own books, I've published several novels written by my husband, Michael Murray. These include the best selling detective novel "A Single To Filey: a DCI Tony Forward novel". When not writing and e-publishing I enjoy family history, reading, gardening, country walks, music, films etc. A diagnosis of advanced colorectal cancer in mid-2017 was followed by 30 months of chemotherapy and two major operations in 2020. Our wonderful NHS has put me well on the road to recovery and I'm hoping to be cancer free for many years to come. I'm everlastingly grateful to my family and friends, especially my husband Michael, for their love and support.
