This morning in my garden…


Early , very early this morning I was out there in the garden to water the veg…We are watering them twice a day in this heat…I was so pleasantly surprised to see little tomatoes growing, little round green balls telling me that soon we will have sweet juicy red cherry tomatoes to add to our salads…insh’Allah…


The runner beans are…running… but plenty of flowers so plenty of hope…insh’Allah…another few days and things will start happening on the beans front too…


And at the back…the flowers are doing pretty well too…hydrangeas made an appearance a couple of days ago and so did the carnations…



“And what about my water?” wanted to know the little one…of course, how could I forget…such little garden so much joy…alhamdulilah…


Salaams y hasta la vista,


Some pics…

My friend Noorah and I took the girls to the seaside last Thursday. We were on our way to our favourite spot in Wittering but as the queue to enter the beach’s car park  was quite long we decided to check out another beach nearby. I think it was called Sesley.

In all honesty it is not the best of beaches but it was so quiet, only 4 oldies, that we decided to stay. The kids had lots of fun and they were not too bothered about the lack of sand. They quite enjoyed the seaweed fights and wearing them as wigs too 😆 Oh and I was very happy to sit on my chair with my feet in the water and read.

The herbs box was a present and I am using all the different herbs in my cooking. I especially adore the little basil leaves in my salads.

My new garden, my recently discovered new passion…gardening. I wouldn’t say I have green fingers just yet but I can say that I ‘m loving every minute out there. I love coming home in the evening and watering the grass and all the little flowers and other plants I planted myself. I love steppping out first thing in the morning and checking for new  overnight ‘appearances’. Even pulling out the nasty weeds is so rewarding. Mashallah, I have many plans and inshallah I would learn as I go along.
