Well, I haven’t managed to do a Tuesday 10 for a while since I restarted, but here I am again.
My garden is a work in progress – long term readers will remember that we started re-landscaping last year. Since then, we were overtaken by work, pregnancy and needing to replace all the pipes in the house because water was coming through the ceilings. So the garden is, to put it mildly, not what I hoped for. The flower beds are either overgrown or dug over and covered to await replanting. The veg beds are no more – we removed the last lot and didn’t manage to build more. Hey ho. But despite that, there are still some signs of spring.
And there are primroses everywhere – they’ve even spread into the lawn, which makes me very happy. I’m not someone who longs for an immaculate lawn (which is probably a good thing, all things considered…)
The daisies are up and out and being ruthlessly picked by Miss S&S the Elder:
There are lots of new leaves:
And lots of new lambs:
And my herb pots by the back door are showing signs of life – my parsley:
And my mint:
I shamefully ignored my strawberry plants last year. They’ve sat outside in all weathers, but I have a few flowers, which is more than I deserve!
The marvellous magnolia stellata is going over now, but here’s a picture I took a week or so ago:
And the cherry blossom is out in force:
Plenty to gladden the heart even without the flowerbeds … but next year will be better!
