Dreaming of the Alps

A gorgeous friend of ours has a place in the Swiss Alps where we were lucky enough to spend a day mooching about. For a place that is normally covered in snow for a good 6 months of the year it sure does come alive with plants when given the chance. While people don't have big gardens with their homes they do the absolute best to make an impact. With both flowers and vegetables. Come for a walk with me.

The local scarecrow outside the fire station blooms

A typical cottage garden which also grew lettuce, fennel and spring onion

Even the drinking fountain was decorated

This was an enormous cauldron filled to the brim with colour

Plant stakes Swiss style
Wish my sage grew this well
Cow's parsley growing wild
The wild flowers were amazing

A wonderful way to spend a few days. Thanks Teeny x
