Q:What's a vampire's favourite fruit?
A: A nec(k)tarine!

Hee hee! In case you haven't noticed it's Hallowe'en this week, a time for ghouls and ghosts and of course, my favourite, the pumpkin lantern! I love pumpkins as they are easy to grow, lovely to eat and fun to carve. Oh and they have a funny name too ;) This week I am sharing with you my top tips for growing pumpkins, Mummy's favourite pumpkin soup recipe and some pictures of my very own carved pumpkin. 

How did that light get in there?!

A (Light) Bulb Moment

Now is the perfect time of year to get outdoors, plant some bulbs and then sit back and wait for a Spring Spectacle! Here are my top tips for planting bulbs and pictures of some of the beautiful bulbs we have planted in our own garden. I have also included a wonderful craft project, perfect for children who love gardening and art, so you can make your own daffodil to brighten up your home through winter while you are waiting on the real ones to spring to life.

Save The Snail!

Most gardener's don't like snails but I have a confession to make. I, Lulu Ann Burt love them! There, I said it! 'Nails (as I call them) are funny creatures and I love hunting for them in the garden. Trouble is they love eating the scrummy plants in the garden as much as we do! It's important to try and help look after our prized plants so here are a few of my top tips on being snail-savvy in the garden as well as a brilliant project to make your own snail which won't eat any of your prized hostas!

Funny Pets In The Garden - Part 2

You all loved my first blog on the funny pets we have come across in gardens. So by popular demand I have written a second blog on this very cute & cuddly subject. Hee hee, they make me laugh every time I look at them :)
