We spent Sunday afternoon visiting a little village, that had about 8 gardens open for viewing. Fantastic! First chance this year to get out and about and enjoy other peoples hard work. One was a cottage garden of about 23 years(Beautifull), another was 3 yrs old court yard garden and had been landscaped by professionals(Loads of promise). The rain was on and off all afternoon, but the village hall did have a plant sale and cream teas on offer, Great!
Another mystery Hosta, a small Geranium that has a different leaf shape to the ones I allready have, a Sedum and a red Tree Peony.
Then back home to make the most of the Spring afternoon.
I got most of the new purchases planted and while I did this my wife re-done the Butler sink by the back door and a few other small pots with alpines.
The left over Alpines went around the pond(should look better this year).
Definately not one to put my wife off anything to do with gardening she carried on and also potted up the cactus that we had bought the other week.
Tonight after work I have dug over a small area that we are going to attempt to grow some veg. Last year we managed beans and parsnips, this year we are going to try some others.
Any suggestions the area is Approx 1mtr x 1.5mtr?
