The outside table is very colourful, I purchased these cyclamen from our local shop, they are beautiful, and work well with the other plants. Soon it will be time to pop both the plants in the back in the greenhouse for the cooler months.
I moved my fruit pots around, they were crowded at the back, so I pulled the blackcurrant and blueberry tubs forward, I was going to get rid of the pink blueberry, but found I did have space for it. I have popped out more flowering pots, more cyclamen and a pot with snowdrops in, changing the look of this spot.
I have loads of seedlings, but they are not as big as I wanted them, I am hoping they will have a big growth spurt in the coming weeks. these should all be in the ground by the end of the month.
More spring bulbs all new this season, purchased here and here, I do have 2 more pots to fill, there are more bulbs coming via an internet order, plus a couple of plants.
I also popped in some sweet pea seeds, which as you can see are growing, these are staying in this pot until next spring, I am hoping for strong plants for the garden.
After cutting all the babies from this pot and giving it more soil and feed, the strings are growing again, I always knock my head on this pot, but I do love it hanging in the greenhouse.
I have a thing for string of pearls, these are in the greenhouse, coming along nicely, I also have 2 pots of them in the house. The small white pot is for Will to take home for the kitchen window sill and I will gift another to my sister
I do feel safe in our village, we can get most things local and are using more local shops, the rest is purchased online. So many friends have children or grandchildren with colds, it's normal this time of year, baby George has had the bad cold, everyone is on the look out for the virus, so is the winter months going to help us get through the next phase, staying inside our homes.
We have full cupboards and freezer, we have a comfortable home and I have loads of crafts I can do, but I am not able to concentrate on some designs. I have 3 books coming, I have read book 1 of the set of 4, plus I have been given more reading books. We don't go shopping much, we removed ourselves from the commercial roundabout many years ago, so in theory our lives should not be that different from last winter.
The shadow of the virus and the impact on everyone's lives is always there, even if I avoid the news, someone will say something or I read another item. It is no surprise we are having a second wave of infections, it's that time of year for viral infections, it is cold and flu season.
