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.
