Have had a lovely day today despite more rain!
Always go exploring on a wednesday with my friend Michele when on holiday from my job at secondary school.
Today we went to the Lizard and the gardens at Trevarno which are still a work in progress but looking lush and green and well worth a visit. Heligan still remains my favourite in the county though.
Can’t wait for Friday – off to Paris for long weekend over the bank holiday with my daughter Erika, Michele and her daughter Lisa and my partner’s sister Sue and her daughter Rachel to visit Versailles and Monet’s Garden. Anyone been there?
Going to tackle my hedge project when I get back before school restarts! As some of you know I want to dig a bed out onder the hedge which I will try and enrich ready for planting things like periwinkles, cyclamens, and some bulbs and hopefully helibores a favourite of my mums.Hope it works out.
Also looking forward to re doing some of my pots with bulbs for spring. Went recently over to the Scilys and bought back some ‘earliecheer’ narcissus bulbs.
Any suggestions for a low wall at my front garden? Thought about fixing boxes of some sort to grow california poppies next year.
Forecast good for us here this weekend. Typical when I’m going away and will miss gardening time! My partner Wacks has got orders to look after my container plants!
Hope the sun shines for you all too
