Gentleman’s Buttonhole

Kerria japonicaBetween winter and spring is¬†a great time to¬†trim what mother used to call Gentleman’s Buttonhole species:¬†Kerria japonica.¬† All the long sticks are potential new plants.¬† I’ve pushed plenty part way into a huge pot of well used damp compost and a few into a garden clients border.¬† It’s such¬†a beautiful shrub of pretty yellow orange pompom flowers and one of hubby’s favourites.




I’ve found gardening with natureūüĆŅconnects¬†me happily¬†to the Earth and the other creaturesūüźĺ upon it.¬† Making things for the home, mending‚ôĽ crafting and living a frugal life is all part of self kindness.¬† Having lived thus far, I seem to have gleaned some pretty amazing things I’m happy to¬†share.¬† Therefore, I’m writing and will start to ūüďĖ¬†self publish.¬†¬†This top blog post is sticky and therefore will appear above¬†more recent¬†posts.
