I started in my garden which has been badly neglected lately due to my knee replacement.
I weeded borders [ where do they come from?] moved pots, pruned shrubs and bushes and planted a row of dwarf beans. I know it is really too early to sew bean seeds but I thought I would give just one row a go. I also planted a row of parsley. We have a real cat problem so I cover the empty garden areas with twigs in the hopes it deters them from using my garden as a toilet!
My Acers around the pond are looking wonderful at the moment, especially when we get a few rays of sun on them. The large red Rhododendron is just coming into flower, there are lots of buds so it should be a good show this year.
Two apple trees bought very cheaply at Aldi and quickly stuck into a couple of empty pots have burst into leaf, not sure I'll be picking apples off them any time soon, but hey one day!
I needed a break after all this gardening, so came and sewed out one of the BOM blocks I missed from class last week as we were on holiday.
