Another strange week but, as I said before, we are lucky.A couple of days ago I had 7 sacks of lovely, well rotted manure delivered. (See later in the post.) Exciting!!Anyway, off we go into this week’s Six-on-Saturday.
I removed the half dozen frosted blooms and it looks rather pretty with plenty more to come.
I thought how nice the robin looked with the narcissi coming into bloom beside it. Then I noticed in the background the real stars of the picture.
Lovely stuff! They shovelled it out from the bottom of the heap so it’s ready to go around the established plants.
The crabapple tree in the front garden is showing plenty of blossom buds. It survived the gale force winds recently even though it is right in the path of the easterly and the westerly gusts.
The Dicentra Spectabilis looks better now I have got rid of the Helibore seedlings and some of the perennial geraniums around it. (The twiggy mulch I used has helped to keep some weeds away but I am digging much of it into the soil.)
As you can see, the fruit cages don’t quite come to the edge of the raised bed so I thought I would sow some radishes in the gap. These are white ones and further down the bed are the traditional red/white ones. Quite successful, so far.
6)I know I have featured these before but I thought the two plants looked nice together. (The sun was reflecting off the leaves and the soil….some of which is cracking through lack of rain!!)That’s it again. I hope you all have a good weekend, it should be good gardening weather and rain is due early next week. I really need it.
