messy garden


Well after being ill for 2 weeks and now feeling a lot better decided today to sort out my little greenhouse, planted some tomatoes, hollyhocks, delphiniums and Cosmos ‘Picotee’, just hope Rocky leaves it alone!!!

The garden is still a mess really needs a good going over, the borders are awful after that winter and some shrubs need branches cutting off, still feeling a bit weak so will have to buckle down soon and tidy it up.

As you can see there are signs of spring in a messy tub lol!! why is it weeds survive so well in winter?
The Mahonia is in flower brightening up a dull corner, i love this one its such a nice shape and lovely bright yellow flowers.

I noticed that the Rosemary that has taken quite a battering has flower buds on it, was going to cut it back shall i or shan’t i?

And finally the catkins on the corkscrew hazel are getting longer a sure sign its warming up! come on Spring!!!!

Pleased you have perked up Sk, your garden is certainly showing good signs of whats to come, a boost in itself. Managed a few days tidying up and made a start in my greenhouse, raining today so back indoors, easy stages is the way to go at the moment......

Glad you are on the mend SK. It's nice to get outside and do a bit isn't it, even if it's just an hour or so. I have made a start too and feel so much better for it.
