SPRING IS IN THE AIR

At last we have temperatures above  0 C°, even at night ! It is still cold and very wet but it is a dry day so I started working in the garden, I don’t know where to begin as the garden is a real mess at the moment.

The builders made us a new terrace in the garden and new garden path’s but what a mess !!!

I don’t clean up my garden in Autumn either cos it is better for the plants and the birds and other small wildlife that is living in my garden, like frogs and hedgehogs, insects…. But now I am ready to start !!!!

MY SNOWDROPS ARE THE ONLY FLOWERS IN BLOOM AT THE MOMENT, WHEN I WAS WORKING IN THE GARDEN TODAY I SAW THEY HAVE SEEDED THEMSELVES HERE AND THERE, I LIKE THAT !

I also started to put my succulents in pots outside again, they spent Winter in my greenhouse and they look really well, last year they were almost death cos of all the cold and wet we had, they can stand the cold but not the wet.
