Spring!

5 comments


Hi everyone tis I!
Spring is definitely here doesn’t it cheer you up? I have lots of pots full of spring bulbs, after they’ve finished I move them to the back of the garage where they die back over summer, then come early spring I top up the compost and bring them out again, seems to work well…so far!


Got some new plastic pots from a company online bit bigger than I thought! But I’m waiting on two Almenchier trees (snowy mesiphilus spelt wrong I think!) so will use them for those, just need OH to drill some holes for drainage 😀


Ordered some petunias, fuchsias and some annual climber seeds, black eyed Susan and cup and saucer seeds.


My friends husband has made good our old bench, I think it looks brilliant and the colours you get for wood preservatives these days!


Happy Easter!

Hiya S'killa, we are making progress, not a lot of warmth outside yet but its grand to see all the spring flowers and the blossom, your pots look really colourful, I do that with some of mine, swap them around when the flowers are in bloom and then exchange later for my Lilies and Hostas, the garden seat looks like a new one again, I like the twotone look...Hope you are keeping well in yourself now....

What a very jazzy bench! Your new trees will look great in the new pots (until they get too big...)

I potted some of my bulbs last year when I was emptying a bit of the border and didn't put them back in. It's been nice to have some pots full of daffs to bring down to the patio this year. I think I will do as you do and leave them in the pots. I love the creamy coloured ones in your last but one photo...very pretty group. Your garden seat looks great. What a clever idea.

Good to hear from you again, SK. Your idea of size seems similar to mine! I ordered a dog bed cover and it would fit a bed for a donkey rather than Millie. Never mind I've halved it and made two, not something you can do with the pots though!
