More gardening

Much more mixed weather at the moment. Gorgeous for a bit then very wet and colder. Needed the rain though so mustn't grumble too much.

Been potting on some cucumber plants, tomato plants and some verbena bonariensis. All looking very hopeful at the moment. Have great difficulty throwing away the ones I don't need, but am trying to be more hard hearted.

Him Outdoors cut the grass a bit on the very longest cut that seems to leave the daisies - hooray. The grass in the vegetable garden is full of violets, periwinkles, cowslips, meadowsweet as well as dandelions and daisies. It's so lovely and sheltered, quite delightful. We cleared masses of deadwood/brambles/lilac out of the hedges when we arrived and this year it is really thickening up with the things we do want. Very satisfying.


  1. You've been working so hard on your garden Rosie. It would be nice to see some pics of the progress so far.

  2. I'm with please :-)
