Garden Update…

I thought a garden update might be in order as I haven’t posted for a while.

In late April the blue tits laid their eggs and now we have little fluff ball juveniles in the garden. ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s an adult on our feeding station pole.

Spring

Spring is here at last and over the last couple of weeks here in the UK we have had some wonderful weather (well 2 weeks ago that is, I’m a bit late in posting ๐Ÿ™‚ ).

The garden has been in bloom with the first flowers coming through (although we do have winter growing flowers), the leaves on our big trees making a welcome appearance and getting seeds planted in the greenhouse for the veggie plot. ๐Ÿ™‚

In the greenhouse we have lettuce, tomatoes, runner beans and cucumber plants.

If you look at the nearest tray the lettuce making an appearance, the far trays are tomatoes but they take a bit longer to show.

I took this yesterday, it’s a picture of one side of our small front garden. The tulips have all come out in spectacular reds and whites, we have hyacinths of various colours and the daffodils are still just hanging on too! ๐Ÿ™‚

Garden Update

This last weekend has been really busy – spring is here! ๐Ÿ™‚

Things are moving on at a pace in the garden, flowers are really springing up, vegetable seeds are starting to be planted in seed trays and the blackbirds are singing furiously to proclaim territory and catch a mate. ๐Ÿ˜€

This is one of many crocus types in my garden, they are delicate and beautiful and a sure sign that the weather is getting warmer when they leap into flower.

Late Autumn Bloomers and Winter Veg

I have been really busy but I thought I would show you our late flowering bulbs. ๐Ÿ™‚

These are called Nerines (Nerine bowdenii). We have had them in the garden for as long as I can remember, but this Autumn they have come out in abundance.
