a bit of warm dry weather can make all the difference …
So far this week hasn’t been too bad at all weatherwise – on Monday I sat on the garden bench with a cup of tea and a book – in February – good heavens!
The sun is inviting the early bulbs to flower
I spent the afternoon planting my new climbing roses – the leaves and birds obelisk was a Christmas present and now takes pride of place by the front door – the rose is Golden Showers.
The patio pansies are flowering their socks off – and have been all winter – although they are looking a little battered and worn now – bulbs are pushing their way through in between them.
The curly kale is just about finished now and starting to go to seed but there is no sign of any spears on the purple sprouting broccoli yet although the foliage really looks healthy and shows no sign of upset at being dug up and moved from the allotment.
and the Chard is still just about edible but will soon be going to seed.
When indoors I have been working on two granny blankets after promising myself to learn to crochet
and indulging in my favourite fish finger sandwiches for lunch – oh yes!
I am trying to take it steady in the garden – after a winter of inactivity I don’t want to do myself a mischief – although I did drop a concrete planter on my big toe which caused the air to turn blue – OUCH!
‘Til next time – take care and happy gardening.
