well today i decided enough of sitting indoors reading hundreds of gardening magazines, yep im afraid im a bit of a fair weather gardener or should i say i WAS. determined this yr that no matter what the weather is, i am gona spend as much time as possible out there, i do love my garden just sometimes need a push.
so tonight i shall go to my bed with a sore back and knees but yessssssss it was worth it.
i have dug and weeded one side of the garden and managed to plant 3 new plants. i just wish my digital camera was working to show ye all my hard work.
as tomorrow is a bank hol here i shall be back outside to do the other side of the garden .

Well done, Irish! I was out here doing the same in `not so sunny` Yorkshire today. I have a newly developed garden , many plants went in for the first time last March, so spent today spreading mulch everywhere in the hope that I will have a beautiful display this year.....What we gardeners do, must be mad, could have stayed indoors and read a book!

Hi Andrea,,, at least when the summer does arrive (hopefully) us gardeners can spend evenings relaxing,enjoying the sight and scents of our hard work.

No you won't! You'll be getting up, removing weeds, taking notes, looking up things, and planning next year - LOL!

I was outside today myself with a warm jacket and gloves. Got quite a bit done. I just had to get out there. It feels GREAT doesn't it ?

aye Mikec, its a great feeling being outdoors.
was another lovely day here again, got some seeds down and a few viola's put into planters. I have a pond in my garden with hopefully 30 fish, unless the heron has been having lunch lol. the last few days they ( the fish ) have been really lively, due to the warm weather i would imagine, so time to start feeding them again .
