Sunday in the Garden

The weekend has been perfect, the weather just how I like it, warm and sunny :-)  I feel so much more alive.

Walking round the garden....

This plant was given to me last year by a friend and this is the first time it has flowered.

Lovely blossom

The salad leaf vegetables are growing well and I pick leaves most days for our dinner.

The herbs are doing equally well.

I really like these small trugs...they make it so much easier and I love that I don't have to bend over.

I removed the first of our raised vegetable beds today - another four to go!  Where to put the soil is the current question up for debate though.  The green 'compost' bin is going to go as well.  It has never been any good at all.   The two plants, a gooseberry and a blueberry, in the blue 'bag' tubs will go in properly pots shortly.

I was surprised to see this little flower - the greenery that it has sprouted from I have been pulling up thinking they are weeds...they probably are...but they are so pretty I will leave any others I find.

The apple has plenty of blossom as well.

The maple was looking pretty in the late afternoon.

Mark has been hard at work putting in edging where I had laid the we will have to move all the bricks!

Starting to look tidier.  Still a long way to go though..

The plants in the wooden wheelbarrow are growing well.

Rhubarb growing among the weeds!  This is in one of the raised vegetable beds so I will have to work out where it is going to go!

Time for a relaxing bath now I think!


  1. Mother's Day here with all that the day brings. We had a mix of sun and cloud and a chilly breeze. Everything is growing so well for you. I think I should consider giving my salad greens some fertilizer because they're hardly growing. Likewise my rhubarb. Have a good week.

  2. Rhubarb!! Mine has hardly popped its shoots above ground. I've had very mixed results with compost bins but I do still keep one going.
