Hope you all had a lovely weekend? I planned to spend a few hours in the garden, but unfortunately the Weather God's did not smile on Easter. I was really happy I already did some work on Friday, which was bright and sunny. I always cherish these early spring days, when there are not that many people around on the allotment complex and I can enjoy the peace and quiet.
The garden is full of flowers. Grape hyacinths, forget-me-nots and primula's cover large part of the front area. Some daffodils have already wilted and are replaced by other varieties that are in bloom now. The plum tree in the front garden and the one near the stream in the back, are full of blossoms. As is my Japanese cherry tree and Magnolia. We planted the Magnolia last year and I was really happy to see it survived the cold.
New shoots appear everywhere; the red spikes of the peonies, pointed shoots of the Hosta's and the first tender branches of the Delphiniums. I spotted the first snails too! In my raised beds the garlic is growing fast. So are the summer bulbs. Tiny seedlings of the Sweet Pea's appear.
Inside the garden house work is in (slow) progress. I gave the ceiling of the garden house a layer of white paint. Once it is finished, I will cover one of the walls in floral wallpaper and change the colour of the china cabinet. More about that in the course of spring or summer.
A happy day to you all!
