Gardening, every hour of every day, would be my choice...
....was I allowed to have such a choice!
My garden is a country garden, where any plant or animal is allowed to
do what it likes...(or any other creature.....)
So here we are; smack bang in the middle of the springtime ...
and, oh my goodness, what a show we have!
It's almost as good as the West End...and a darn sight cheaper!!
And, of course, it's right on my doorstep...
no travelling costs to consider!
I delight in seeing what the natural world throws at me, day after day...
month after month...
...year after year.
And this springtime is a real beauty!
You would be forgiven for thinking that these are not tulips (below)!
They are huge!
(When I think back to the autumn, I can't recall even buying them!)
And the Narcissi are completely out of place, really...
planted in the veg trug, which I don't use as a veg trug
but as a herb trug! That's me all over!
I never stick to rules when I'm in the garden!!
And talking of ponds (which we weren't!)
I have two container ponds...
But...watch this space because we are in the process
of adding a 'proper wildlife pond '
to our garden!! This is so exciting!
Meanwhile, back to Erysimum...the most
dependable plant that I know...flowering
on and on and on and on and on...
Honesty and friends, grown in an old dustbin
once belonging to my mum and dad.
And a new addition on Mothering Sunday, from Nich..
Along with this beauty from Helen.
I've resurrected my blog!
And tomorrow, I'm off to another theatre!!
One where the performers wear yellow... and,
hopefully, will do as well as all of those in my garden!!
