Instagram


I've just joined Instagram. I often post photos of flowers, vintage, crafts etc on my Facebook page, but not all friends are interested, so I thought it would be nice to have (yet another) outlet. My Instagram name is Fiona Cumberpatch (not very imaginative but I knew there wouldn't be another one!). I'll be catching up with some of you over there and meanwhile, look out for me! 
I am sure I will be Instagramming like a good 'un next week as I am very excited that I have a ticket to the Hampton Court Palace flower show. I have followed a local garden designer's progress to the show for a feature in the local magazine, and I just can't wait to see Jeni Cairns and her finished project.


Jeni is an artist as well as a garden designer. She uses lots of upcycled materials and repurposed items in her designs. She's been plasma cutting old oil drums to make features for the show garden, and a few weeks ago, I bought one of her lovely recycled metal hearts. This is really big - half a metre wide - and looks so good hanging on my shed in my wild garden.


I just think it's beautiful!

    I love that up-cycled heart wall decor.
