Jane's Jottings

Welcome to my everyday treasures…

The dictionary would have it that ‘jottings’ are brief notes, very possibly
thoughts and ideas that need to be written down before they escape. That’s
exactly what you will find here with notes on my travels, the things I’m
making, what I’m up to in the garden and even the odd recipe.

I can’t imagine my garden, my house, or my stitching without roses. Climbers or standards, they are all my passion.

The greenhouse is always filled with the promise of what’s to come. And it’s a lovely place to hide for a while!
