Somehow I always choose the worst days of the week to work in the garden :-). It was pouring with rain when I opened the garden gate last Wednesday. On a whim I drove to the allotment, coming back from and errand in a nearby village.
Before I entered, I met an elderly couple, who just came back from their garden and asked me what on earth I was going to do in mine. The garden being partly waterlogged. Thing is.... I didn't really know..... It had been an eventful week. Working in my garden or just being there gives me the peace and quiet that I need. It clears my mind and fills it with new ideas.
I planted left over bulbs, which I bought at a reduced price in containers, had a look through the seed packages sweets friends gave me, or which I swapped with them.
Just before I left I had a quick walk through the garden, to see how the plants were doing. Some leaves are turning yellow, so please keep your fingers crossed they will survive the rain. There is good news as well. There are lots of shoots everywhere, the hellebore buds are developing and I can already see the noses of some tulip bulbs appear above ground. It won't be long now. Can't wait :-)
The photo's in today's post are a combination of photo's I took in my garden last week, combined with some I made last summer and haven't shown you yet.
Wishing you a sunny week!.
