2017 in my Bristol Garden.

Posted: 24/02/2017 at 08:41

Such a difference in the weather today!  Briliant sunshine in Bristol and no wind!  Colour everywhere in my garden.  Bergenias and daffodils unharmed by the wind yesterday.  I have sent for 50 aconites in the green and some more heucheras and Madame Lemoinier hellebores so busy planting times ahead.That plus more seed sowing will keep me busy.

It is too windy to venture out in Bristol.  A huge tree has come down not far from me and hit a 13 year old  We have a weather warning for high winds till 10pm.  Stay safe everyone.

Another 12 bean seeds planted in their pots and two pots of Garlic Chive seeds.  I had to dodge the drizzle a bit so will need to wear my raincoat after coffee break to go out and cut some more bamboo on the terrace.  Daffodils looking good now.

I planted 12 broad beans in pots yesterday so plan to do another 12 today  10 degrees already but rain forecast for 9am and more this afternoon.  Still it is good to get started with the seed sowing.

As it was 10 degrees I thought I would start in the garden early but half an hour later the fog/mist rolled in on the wind and i found i was getting breathless.  Living near the M% means my garden is open to the traffic pollution despite all my forest trees,  so I had to come in for my lungs' sake.  My cherry tree is in full bloom but is so big now it needs blue sky to get a good picture so first sign of sun I will photograph it.

Enjoy your new place Flumpy.  i wonder if they coud prescribe something for Flumpyitis.  The symptoms are a pain when you stretch the right side of your neck!  Just kidding.  i bet there is something simple you can do to fix it.

I too am a nettle lover, Kate. Nettle tea is delicious. You can buy the dried variety if you do not have your own source.
