I got out in the garden yesterday for the first time this year, after enthusiastically buying some plants at the garden centre this weekend. It's only a small garden but it's still fun to be in. I am eagerly awaiting my cherry blossom.
A red thing, lavender and a fuchsia I also planted some phacelia seeds to encourage bees that I got free from the Soil Association.
Under those planks (stupid cats) are some dwarf beans and two raspberry bushes that I was given from a colleague before I left my old job... here's hoping they produce something we can eat - I am nervous as I've never managed to grow anything before.
My inherited strawberry bed - I planted some sweet peas at the back, probably not what you are supposed to do but we'll soon find out ... I love sweet peas, they remind me of my nanny. Should I clear the strawberry beds of the old leaves? I don't know what I'm supposed to do!
|I also sorted out the conservatory to make a space we can use now it's not freezing cold anymore.|
|Huge excitement at watching a snail slide over the paving stones|
|My kitchen is coming together. I need to put up a rack for my saucepans and that's it.|
|A makeshift drawing desk - I need to get him a proper chair and table!|
