meagre offerings


i thought i would offer you the few plants i have in flower. i have been looking at pictures of this time last year and the difference is amazing. the garden was much further on at this time last year, but the wait will be worth it! i have been getting on with seed sowing, my window sill is flowing over onto my little folding table that i put up each year. when the weather gets milder, i move the plants to a mini greenhouse i put in the front garden next to the house wall, that is the warmest place in the garden. i have tomatoes, sweet peas, achillea,verbascum, penstemon, coreopsis,sweet peppers and carnations all pricked out and the propagator is full again. we have had a couple of good days when i got out into the back garden(much colder than the front) and planted the shrubs and trees in the now new wildlife garden. i have put in some perennials but not all. HAPPY GARDENING.

It's happening isn't it lemondog. Spring is on it's way. Do you pick some Daphne & bring it indoors for the perfume?
