Sunny weekends

In the sunshine these are WOW
 A bit of underplanting, looking good
looks like April 
 My Mediterranean plants are doing good in the greenhouse
Saturday was such a lovely day, I spent time outside, it was just too lovely to be inside, I try not to start too early in the year in my garden, as once the gardening bug bites, I want to be outside all the time, and even here along the south coast, February is still far to early, I need March to be gone, then I can play outside everyday. I have moved all the pots full of bulbs to the decking outside our patio doors.
Hubby is working on his motor bike, he has had it's MOT and service this week, and is now waiting until 1st of March to Tax it, then he can ride again, he has not used his bike since early October, but it has been polished loads in the past few weeks, I think he is missing the freedom.
We are not using the heating in the daytime at all, whilst the sun shines the house stays warm, we are also up to date with the laundry, drying loads on the line. These extra warm days are bliss, we went for a walk through our local park, which was full of children and people.
I have the bottom of Will's jumper to knit, I am slowly getting to the finish line, but I'm not in a knitting mood, but I won't start another project, I need to finish a few 1st. So for now I am reading.


  1. The weather's so gorgeous at the moment. We went for a lovely walk yesterday afternoon, we've got to make the most of it whilst we can. Both my knitting and reading mojo has left at the moment but it'll come back again soon, I'm sure.

  2. I'm torn between the renovating and garden. Your bulbs look great.

    1. I would stay working inside and leave the garden to see what grows this summer.

  3. I have moved pots around, lots of bulb colour near the doors now. At the end of October I threw all the left over bits of seed packets onto 2 of the raised beds as green manure, then covered them with fleece. This morning I lifted the fleece to find a good crop of salad leaves, bonus. They will be used over the next few days.

  4. What is it about a sunny day that makes us feel so good?
    I love it.

  5. We had a wander today at a local botanical garden with daughter and granddaughter, the sunshine was so lovely and the crocus, snowdrop and hellebore collection were amazing.
