#mygardenrightnow: the video

Rainy roses and dischuffed cats
Early doors in my PJs... I look at raindrops while Jess and Skimble yell 'Oi, where's my breakfast!'

It's quite a different day to yesterday's warm sunshine, yet the #mygardenrightnow weekend's going strong and I still have stuff to share from my garden.

One of the things I love about blogging projects is they can take you in quite unexpected directions. I contacted Bren on Friday - one of the US bloggers I met at this year's Fling - to see if it was OK if I posted about #mygardenrightnow on her #gardenchat Facebook Page.

We ended up having an enthusiastic video chat instead (my first!) with Bren actually in her garden at the time, then she put together the video below of our conversation, illustrated with lots of photos from previous editions of #mygardenrightnow. It sums up perfectly how we all come together for a 'virtual peep over the fence' - thanks to Karen for that neat summary :)

If the embedded video doesn't work, try this link instead. Bren has put this and more on her own blog, Creative Living which includes photos from her own garden in Ohio - she has some fab dahlias and I want those tomatoes!

Thanks Bren, your generosity and enthusiasm for #mygardenrightnow is amazing.

For the links to everyone's blog posts from this weekend - have a look at yesterday's post.


  1. I was at the show all day yesterday and I forgot to take a photo this morning so I'll be a day late. xx

  2. Nooo I missed it! I was driving to Oban and back at the weekend. Will there be another one in December? I love the video chat!

    1. Crumbs that's quite a distance Sarah! I hope your daughter's settling well into her new life in Scotland :)

    2. And yes, the plan is to have another one the first weekend in December - put 2-3rd in your diaries :)
