It has been such a beautiful day today, although we did wake up to rain, but this afternoon has been so sunny and warm. This has sparked me off.
So after going to a seed swap and getting a few climbing french bean seeds, I suddenly thought where am I going to put them. After not so much deliberation I found a spot, but it needs a thorough dig over. At the moment it is full of spanish bluebell and arum, but it will be cleared and hopefully this weekend. Then I can put chicken pellets on and wait for the beans to grow. I have sowed them in pots in the greenhouse.
And talking of which, I have now taken the bubble wrap off the glass. Too soon I hear you all shout. But I am so impatient when it comes to getting things tidied and up and running.
On my walk around the garden today I have noticed a change in the colour of plants. We now have the beginnings of the blue and yellow.
A pale seedling of Pulmonaria.
A chewed example of Hepatica Noblis.
Pulmonaria Blue Ensign.
A sunny looking Narcissus.
I think the pond needs a clear out.
Can you remember all the boxes of clay pots my friends David and Carolyn gave me? Well I have now managed to unbox them and they are now sitting under the greenhouse staging, waiting to be filled. And not before time, as I found a tray of Auricula outside and 9 out of the 10 pots had cracked with the frost. They have all been repotted and waiting in the wings.
I am now looking forward to getting a lot more jobs done in the garden this weekend, this sun is the boost we all need.
