Happy Friday everyone.  Bit late I know but I have been out at work all day.  Anyway, the weekend is upon us and I hope you are all going to have a great time.  Now, I know I have talked a lot about stuff for the garden and dogs but for all you cat lovers out there then we do have this little fella who I'm sure you will agree is a total cutie!  His name is Dale and he is one of our "ceramistone" ornaments which can go inside or outside the home.  He sells for £35.00 and can be found on our Inside Gifts page.  Another one of his friends is Nicky and he really is a happy 
cat.  These cats are great.  They don't need fed and they wont run up your curtains or bring you dead animals as presents.  Granted they're not fluffy like this little one but they are adorable just the same.  Well, I hope you all have a very enjoyable weekend, it looks as
though the sun might continue to shine on us.  Could this be the beginning of the better weather?  Who knows, I certainly hope so.  Maybe not time to get the sun cream out just yet but here's hoping it wont be too long!!

Hello again.  I thought this picture might cheer us all up as this is what we should be seeing out there in the gardens by now, not snow.  I have to say that we are having a lovely bright sunny day up here in Cumbria although it is still very very cold.  Hopefully, it wont be too long before things start to sprout up in the garden.   I thought today I would share with you some of our garden accessories.  How about for starters these cute cast iron key keepers.
You can choose from either tortoise, frog or hedgehog and they are priced at only £4.99.  Never be locked out of your home again.  They make a really great gift and look good as a garden ornament.  We also have three or four different hooks available.  I particularly like this one which is a love heart design.  Made from cast iron it would look great inside or out and is only £5.99.   Find them and more on our Garden Accessories page. Now then as promised Alfie is back!!  This was taken a couple of weeks ago in 
the beautiful Lake District.  It was his first time there and as you can see I think he loved it!  Don't forget to look out for him on facebook and I'm sure he will make further appearances on here.  Well, half way to the weekend and hopefully this is the start of the better weather because I'm dying to get back out in the garden.  Enjoy the rest of your week and remember...... Keep Shopping!!

Happy Easter everyone and welcome to our latest Product of the Week.  We are at that time of year when our garden birds are looking for somewhere perfect to nest so this week I decided I would focus on somewhere for them to live and have chosen these lovely shaker style bird houses.  They all have a little round hole for the bird to enter but each has a different design to doors, windows and chimneys.  
They come in a choice of four colours, cream, white, brown and blue and all have a hinged door either at the back or side so you can easily clean them out.  They measure 17x17x27cm and look great in the garden.  They are suitable for Blue Tits, Sparrows and Wrens and are reasonably priced at £18.99.  Find them on our Best For Birds page. 

So go on and make our feathered friends happy this Easter and buy them a new home from Ruddick Garden Gifts.
Well I hope you all enjoy the rest of your Easter Day.  I am off for my Easter dinner now and will speak to you later in the week.
