Post Comment Love 18-20 May

Hello there and welcome to another #PoCoLo if you were here last week it was great to see you.  If you're new here this week, then welcome, it's great to have you along and I know that you'll find some great posts to read and a fabulous group of bloggers too.

I'm hoping that by the time this is published the weather's back on the warmer side. I can't believe how different it's been; one day I was in summer dresses and sunglasses and the next day winter boots and coats would have been appropriate.  And I wished I'd worn them, my cardigan wasn't anywhere near warm enough.

As well as looking forward to the Chelsea Flower Show, which is the post I've linked up this week, I am also interested to see how the Royal wedding goes, and of course the Cup Final.  We've a family barbecue too this weekend and we should head back over to the allotment, to really make it look as if we've made an effort.  We hadn't visited all winter and had been putting off our first visit, but remembering that we failed the inspection last year, we're determined not to fail again.  I'm hoping we'll be ok as in just a couple of visits there's a noticeable difference and significantly less grass, and what's even better is that our plot isn't the worst. Phew.

My photo this week is something much prettier - two alliums in my garden.  The alliums have quietly gone about their business and have suddenly burst into flower, they're alongside the patio and a welcome addition.  As it seems I can grow these, and they aren't too fussy about soil, perhaps I should get some more!

Before we get onto this week's Blogger Showcase, Morgan and I have a request for you - we're looking for some guest co-hosts of Post Comment Love at the end of July and August, so if you'd like to guest co-host our weekly linky, then please get in touch with either Morgan or I.  If you've never done it before, don't be scared, it's great fun and you won't be alone, I promise.

Equally if you'd like to be featured in a future Blogger Showcase then also get in touch, we do have a bit of a waiting list into July at the moment, but all you need to do is send us your answers and we can sort out a date.
