I’m sure my neighbours must think I’m mad but I haven’t really built 2 wigwams in my garden. Although they look like them infact they are my sweetpea frames covered in fleece so that I could plant out the Sweetpeas and release some precious greenhouse space – which I might add I am rapidly running out of.

A quick view of one side of the greenhouse -the rest is just like it, all annuals for pots and borders – its keeping me very busy but blissfully happy -but I need a bigger greenhouse.

I am really enjoying wondering around the garden at the moment, seeing everything starting to show and trying to remember what it was I planted lol!
Most of the colour at the moment are my pansies and voilas which grew last year.

The fish in the pond are spawning, there’s also tadpoles and the Mallard ducks Donald and Daisy keep visiting.

Yes a good idea I think I'll do the same with my sweet peas. The seeds came free with a gardening mag and now they're getting leggy and need to go outside. Lovely orange pansies and how lucky to have Donald and Daisy visiting :o))

I've had to do this too but I just keep an eye on the night-time weather and only cover mine if there is going to be a frost of any kind.

I think your sweet peas will look nice growing up those wigwams. :)
That reminds me I haven't sewn mine yet lol

Some lovely colours in those pansies and violas K. Sounds like your raring to get out there and get on with things! Never mind it will soon be time, then we'll be playing catch up, with so many things to do!

Thankyou Terratoonie - with the drop in temperature the fleeces are staying where they are.

Oh, I love Sweet Peas! They'll look lovely when they're twining up and around those wigwams. : o )
