My favourite place

The garden really is my favourite place to spend time at the moment.
The 'new bit' is feeling more part of the old garden as we try to link the two bits together. There's still a lot to do in the next half term but I bought fence paint today so if it's dry this long Bank Holiday weekend, it should be another job ticked off the list. 

The veg patch is beginning to show promise. 

We've planted a rhubarb, mint, peas, chard and onions so far - courgettes and runner beans are going in this weekend. I do like to go down every evening and first thing in the morning on slug and snail patrol.

The Allium's this year are flowering much earlier than last year. We planted a lot more bulbs and in one patch alone we have 15 heads in bud ready to flower.

The Clematis is full of bud and flower all along one side of the garden and back fence - we must try and encourage it to spread into the new bit.

Bluebells and tulips surround the base of the tree - beautiful. The grasses and ferns are all beginning to unfurl and grow. The apple tree blossom is in flower and the tree is now leafing up lovely. 

As I said it's the best place to be and it's where you'll find me until at least October!
