Gardening

Despite the weather forecast which said it would rain all over Easer we had a glorious weekend, with lots of sunshine.

This does mean that the garden has to shake of its winter scruffy outlook, so we have been weeding, lawn cutting, and Adam has started scrubbing the algae off the decking.

Here is part of the border








This is my first attempt to grow tomatoes. The plastic is a sort of greenhouse (ish). Fingers crossed.








Here is a pretty plant I got at the garden centre yesterday







Here is the other end of the garden, now looking trimmed and neat








And finally here is the flowering cherry in the front garden. I love spring.

I also managed to get a little bit pink while sitting in the sun on (appropriately) Sunday.

I'm not the only one as the garden centre was really busy yesterday, as lots of people were also clearly bringing their gardens up to scratch so you can sit out in them without being intimidated by the weeds. For a week or two anyway, until they start growing back.

Now you are such a gardener I will be expecting the latin names for all those plants. M

I'm not past pretty pink one for most of them - I try to leave the labels on them so I know what they are when someone asks. Actually if Latin O level had dealt with useful things like plant and animal names I might have passed the exam.

May I just say the garden looks even lovelier in real life. Not only jealous of the plants and 'pretty pink things', Carl and I have total lawn envy too when comparing yours to the sparse couple of square inches we've managed to cultivate in 3 years...

That is lovely, makes me miss my garden back in TO. Potted plants just aren't the same.
