May In Your Garden

Posted: 18/05/2012 at 15:20

Took a turn around the garden this morning and am very pleased to finally see things growing or blooming now.

No jobs to do that can't wait though, my runner beans and other tender climbers are warm and snug inside my dining room after a recent cold blast curled their leaves. They will probably stay there for at least the rest of the month as I don't trust the British summer this year. They are waving at the broad beans and hardy annuals busy hardening off on the patio (probably with a smile on their faces).

Couple of investment plants still need potting on but I've run out of compost, no biggy

@Dean Lovett, your pots look lovely and I am jealous of the gorgeous stone wall behind them too!

@figrat, good job. Those plants will thank you for it.

@Inkadog, wow. Your new path and trellis looked like a lot of hard work, but incredibly well executed. What I mean is, mine would have ended up wonky

@Debbie Mckenzie, welcome! Your garden looks just like mine did 17yrs ago but with more stuff in it and no fencing  Enjoy the gardening journey!

If I missed anybody, sorry and enjoy your gardens.

Last look at my monster Ceanothus in full bloom! It's getting a short back and sides once its done flowering, or else it will swallow the house!

Oh figrat! I met mine this morning too!

Here's my arty contribution

 It's a fat one!

I had to go to my parents after these shots were taken but later in the afternoon, hubby showed me where he had gone to, he was sitting on my fence being fed by Daddy all afternoon!
