  • Zinnias - I remember them growing in my Gran's garden when I was young.  I didn't like them much, cos they used to get caterpillars on them.  Now I adore them.  The rich vibrant jewel toned flowers. This year I want to be able to put bunches like this in my house.  So I am planning a space in my garden for some plants.

  • The amazing poppy display at the Tower of London, commemorating the lives lost in World War One.

  • Strawberry season - unfortunately these are not from my garden, it hasn't stopped me from enjoying them though.

  • The look of this Christmas Pavlova, if  I'm on dessert duty for Christmas Day, this may be what I make.

  • The perfect excuse for not getting my housework done.
