1st time sat outside with our morning coffee, the weekend was mostly outside in the day, how lovely to be able to go outside with just a warm jumper on, it felt sooooo good.
My pots are the stars at this time of year, the yellow tulips are early as they are in the greenhouse and look wonderful, the other pots are showing great signs of growth. The pots on our small metal table have given us so much colour.
Good enough to have the bathroom mats out on the line, they did not dry completely, but they do smell so good after a blow out on the line. The daffodils are starting to open, giving a sea of yellow in this bed.
I have started some seeds, I hope to get some wild looking flowers in my raised bed, I love seeing daises, poppies and cornflowers all together. The chamomile are for a taller pot in my herb garden, I already have ox eyed daises in my raised bed.
The greenhouse is still full, I have loads of tender plants I dug out last year and most have survived in here, I am hoping in April most of these will be outside.
There is so much I want to do, but it's far too early in the year, sowing some seeds did help. I did plant out aquilegia plants, I grew from seeds, I hope they take so I can have some more early flowers, I have grown them before but they don't survive too long in our clay soil. I also planted my bulbs for late summer plants, dotting them around the plot and a white lavender, grown from a cutting last year. I moved a few pots around, checked my rhubarb, I'm not sure if it will grow this year, I have covered it with a big pot, everything crossed it does come back.
I have sore scratched hands, lost a couple of nail tips, but I care not, I can't explain how an hour in the sunshine in the garden is so rewarding, both hubby and I can always find things to do. We both slept much better the past couple of nights. It's another blue sky morning, not as warm as the past few days, we hope to go for a walk later as we start our weight loss again.
