And yet more daffodils. . . . .

Still daffodil obsessed….. but they are nearly over in the garden. The tulips and the early shrubs are starting to bloom now and the magnolia is splendid.

I haven’t done much painting since my last post and what I have completed has still been “daffodils” as part of the last art group project. The family all got daffodil cards for Easter in some form or other ! As the weather has improved, and was very warm over the Easter weekend, I have spent much of my time on preparatory work in the vegetable garden. I have lots of seedlings of various sorts in pots on the window sills and I am gradually moving things out to the cold frame. The broadbeans actually got planted out today as well. I cannot so the seed directly into the ground because of marauding mice! There would be nothing left, as I have found to my cost in the past. I grew more than enough for myself and so was able to pass a tray of beans on to my son and his wife who have just been granted half an allotment. They have their own first proper veg patch! Not used for a while, but had been covered with old carpet to suppress the weeds. I can’t wait to see what they can do with it.

Spring has definitely sprung ……

  1. How excited you must be with these lovely shows of Spring. Here, Autumn is slowly claiming our days, and my husbands garden plot is now planted with winter vegetables. I am hoping to start a flower patch at the community garden, as I wish to pick my own to have inside. I like that you didn’t wish to upset your tulip display and bought from the store.

    1. It’s lovely and dry at the moment with a slight frost each morning. Bodes well.
