I don't want to tempt fate, but here in my little spot of the world, we've been enjoying some great weather, and there's no better time to do a spot of gardening when it's like this.
Not having managed any at the weekend, I thought I'd use half an hour yesterday to do a spot of planting. At the back of the garden is an area where the grass has died due to the overhanging trees, so rather than grass seed it which we've done previously, I added a few colourful plants which all being well will survive in dappled shade.
Forget me knots, primroses and something else which I can't remember. I've also got some wildflower seeds which apparently I can just scatter (my sort of planting!). The mix is great for butterflies which is always good.
The blossom in the front is finally falling - it looks like pink snow. In previous years I've always swept it up but this year I think I'll leave it. The bumble bees must like it as the tree is buzzing with them.
Onto gardening of a different kind - I've had this miniature greenhouse (as in dolls house size)
for a few years, and I got round to painting it about a year ago and purchased a couple of little items. Since then it's been neglected on my shelf so I think it's now time to bring it back to life and add some further little pieces to it.
What do you think?
