It's time to reveal the reality of #mygardenrighgtnow and compare it with the photo at the top of the blog which was taken in the summer. You'll see I've not cut back much of my garden yet - that tiny dot of pink in my trug is the clue my secateurs are poised to start soon.
I used the trug originally to link my garden with my allotment and I've done the same this time around. I have the seeds I'm about to sow this weekend, some caliente mustard for green manure, plus my loppers and soft tie for finishing off my tree care.
There's quite a contrast between the two photos, but they also show I love my garden whatever the season.
This challenge is designed to be easy to do, so you can be as quick as you like when taking your photo. Remember, selfies are great if you don't have your own personal photographer like I had, or you can show just a part of you in action in the garden instead. Be as inventive and quirky as you want.
My inaugural post has more information for those of you coming across #mygardenrightnow for the first time.
I've created a Mr Linky below for those of you with blogs to add the URL of your #mygardenrightnow post. Leave a comment with your URL if this isn't working - it's been a while since I set up one of these. I'm also going to see if the URLs from other social media can be added successfully - I'll let you know how I get on.
Update: Thanks for all your blog posts - they're a wonderful snapshot of our gardens at one point in time. I've also added lots of Twitter and Instagram contributions to Mr Linky and note you don't need an account with these applications to view them. I've also added a FB link from June, but I'm not sure if non-FB users can view her contribution - try it, it's worth a look as she's taken the trouble to make a video!
Note that you don't have to have a blog to take part, individual entries via whatever social media you choose are fine.
I'll keep an eye on the #mygardenrightnow hashtag on Twitter (via @malvernmeet) and Instagram (via @vegplotting) so I can respond to and promote your posts over the weekend. If you're posting on Facebook let me know via my Veg Plotting Page as these entries can be a little more tricky to spot.
Note that the Garden Bloggers Facebook Page and #gdnbloggers hashtag are also available for you to let everyone know what you've been up to.
It would be great if everyone participating can visit and Like/Comment/Share a couple of other people's photos to help share the love. NB posts which have nothing to do with #mygardenrightnow will be deleted from Mr Linky.
I'm looking forward to seeing what else you've come up with :)
