It's officially spring, the daffodils and primroses are flowering and I even saw a bit of blue sky yesterday - for a while!
I was outside this morning to take these photographs. I had intended to dig up and divide some perennials for the forthcoming seed swap, but the wind was bitingly cold so I chickened out and worked in the greenhouse instead.
Spring flowers around Maisie's grave.
I've had a good crop of oranges this year.
The Meyer lemon bush always crops well.
I've repotted all the auriculas. No matter how hard I try to eradicate vine weevils the auriculas always get reinfected. What horrible grubs! But happily they don't seem to bother with any of my other plants.
The seed swap and potato fair is on Saturday and I'm manning a stall. I've got a range of cottage garden plants to sell and the greenhouse is crammed with pots that I'll be taking.
Inside the house the 'avalanche' roses are looking even lovelier as they age. I'm hoping I'll be able to root one or two of the stems once the flowers have faded.
I hope spring is behaving itself wherever you are.
Oh what beautiful gardens and photos! We have a bit longer to go before I can plant outside but my daffodils and lenten roses are blooming now. Enjoy Spring!ReplyDelete
It's actually really miserable to be out, Sonia. A fierce, cold wind. I was foolish enough to put some washing on the line but it was blown off, pegs and all!Delete
Wonderful! I am sure you'll do great, selling at your stall.ReplyDelete
We had a beautiful Sunday with a mix of sun and clouds, and were out walking for a few hours, enjoying all the beauty around us that is typical for spring - usually much later than this year, but welcome nonetheless.
Weather as described above! I'm hoping for a window of opportunity tomorrow in which to pot up some of the perennials from the garden for the sale on Saturday. We've had little chance for a good walk so far this year as it's very slippy underfoot and there is the threat of falling timber in the woods.Delete
You grow your own oranges? OMG. I love that. Very, very cool.ReplyDelete
We rent our land but I plan on growing a few things from seed this year. A long time ago I grew beans and boy, I miss having those.
PS: I'm Ivy and I found you on Gayle's blog. Happy Planting.
Hello Ivy, I've got one small orange tree, brought home from a holiday in Corfu quite a few years ago. It spends over half the year in the greenhouse and the summer months outside. I've had a dozen or so lovely oranges from it this year. My lemon tree is far more prolific!Delete
Beans -now they are really good doers! I plant Blue Lake and Cobra French climbing beans, they are delicious and very prolific. Hope your bean planting goes well. :-)

I really want to thank Dr Emu for saving my marriage. My wife really treated me badly and left home for almost 3 month this got me sick and confused. Then I told my friend about how my wife has changed towards me. Then she told me to contact Dr Emu that he will help me bring back my wife and change her back to a good woman. I never believed in all this but I gave it a try. Dr Emu casted a spell of return of love on her, and my wife came back home for forgiveness and today we are happy again.
