Anyone done any gardening today?

Posted: 07/03/2015 at 18:38

Not a lot of planning goes on here - mostly finding things to fill gaps.  I am rubbish at visualising what something will look like til its grown.  OHs much better at it.  But, over the years I am beginning to get it looking how I want it ....just need to be brave at moving my mistakes

Thanks Runnybeak - managed it now

Had a great afternoon in the garden cleaning out old leaves from someof the flower beds.  So much is beginning to shoot up.  Gave my roses a bit of a prune too, and will feed them all tomorrow.  Really feels like spring now ......lovely

 A- ha - bit of patience, and ignoring error messages did the trick

Just come in from gardening, and had to abandon my fleece half way through.  First time this year for shirtsleeves.  Three butterflies and lots of bumbly bees

It's my birthday

Morning A fine weekend forecast

Popping to town for a haircut, then planning a day of tidying (garden, not house).  Have a new hand rake to put to the test.  Just been out for a wander, and my daffs are showing their first hint of yellow - everywhere else they seem to have been going for weeks, but we are always late here.  Even my February Gold's don't seem to have read their labels properly

It's my birthday
