What's occurring?!!;-)

T'is time to take a look at the greenhouse area and see what's occurring!!

I've been especially pleased with my old sinks, sited just outside the greenhouse,

which contain Lavender, Cowslips, Pansies and Anemone Blanda.

I have to admit that in my many years of gardening, I've never grown Comfrey from seed!

Until now, that is!! Germination!

Excitement reigns!!

Excitement reigns all over the greenhouse, actually!!

I have Fuchsias, Antirrhinums, Primula...

Sweet peas, Zinnia, Cosmos, Geraniums, Pansies...

To name but a few!

In the ground, I have Sunflowers (Tall and not so tall), Pot Marigolds

...and more Sweet Peas ( climbers and not so climbing!) 


And I've plenty of summer flowering bulbs yet to plant...these were all

presents to me and I'm looking forward to seeing the end results

come the summer !

Meanwhile,  just below the greenhouse, this little bank of Polyanthus

 and Primroses, always brings a smile to my face!

My personal preference is the old fashioned primrose...I love it.

Down near the wild bank, I have a newly cleared area to garden this year; 

it's not very big but it's big enough to grow Sunflowers, Sweet Peas, Marigolds 

(The English pot variety, naturally!)

as well as some Hellebore, which should look 

lovely come next winter.

I've also left a space for some Rhubarb crowns!

I love our wild bank at this time of year ! 

It's all neat and tidy; just waiting patiently to spring into action!

I have a wealth of wild flower plants all coming along quite nicely and

 in no time at all they will be ready to make that journey down the garden

... to their new home on the bank!

Hopefully, the bees and butterflies will love this!

And, talking of banks... the old bank, running along our boundary, is covered in


In Nich's old plot, I have the healthiest looking Foxgloves...

And when I'm not around to oversee things, there's my trusty aid...

It's April and I'm well on top of things and loving the garden

and what it has to offer.

Not forgetting the potting shed where there is always plenty to do!

Your seedlings are putting mine to shame. Cannot believe you have so much going on so early. It looks so lovely. I find it all very inspiring; I'm in Plymouth this week but hope to get really into the garden when I get home.
