GARDENPICTURES


Today was a lovely Spring day, not too hot with a bit of a cold wind but ideal for working in the garden which I did. I took some pictures for you to see.

  1. It does sound like you had a wonderful day pottering around the garden. Lovely blooms, especially your Arabis. Over here it still feels like summer, although technically it’s our mid-Autumn. Still waiting for the slightly cooler temps.

    • I hope I can do more of the same today, I haven’t beeen able to do much in the garden as we had 2 weeks of schoolholidays and I had my grandkids to look after, they are 3 and 5 and when they are here I can’t do anything but play with them as they want my attention for a full 100% ! So everything has grown a lot especially the weeds !

      • Oh it’s much more fun playing with your grandkids! I know I don’t get to see mine all that often and it’s just brilliant when they can visit or I can go and visit with them. Gardening takes a back seat then.

      • my grandkids live only 10 minutes walking from where we live and their school is in front of my house so I see them almost every day, and they are soooooo lively….just like my sons when they were little
