I rushed out yesterday while the sun was shining to grab a few photos. Mostly shoots and buds but I am anticipating great things soon! There are so many shoots showing through but they are growing very slowly. The broad bean and sweet pea seeds are not showing any signs of germination in the greenhouse, so I have bought some more of each and will try again! To be fair, the other seeds are a few years old.
Without further ado, here are my Six-on-Saturday for this week.
I am getting a bit impatient waiting for the bathroom plant cuttings to show signs of life and the little shelf looks so bare, so I went to the local garden centre to find a replacement. I was wanting an upright, foliage plant but on the bargain shelf, this arrangement was reduced from £12.99 to £5.99 so it would have been rude not to, wouldn’t it……….? The middle plant should grow taller and may remain there once the others finish, or are moved to their own pots.
Here are the shoots :- peonies, rhubarb and then the daffodils under the pruned lavender hedge. I think I mentioned that these daffodils have multiplied dramatically over the last few years. (Yes, plenty of tidying up to do around the shoots!)
I bought “half a pint” of broad beans yesterday. I had forgotten that that was how they are measured! I will plant some of these this weekend in the greenhouse and see how they get on!
Those crocuses look much prettier this week, even with all of the other plants and weeds muscling in!
I planted a whole lot of very old bulbs that I found in the garage not expecting much but it looks as though an anemone has come alive!! I shall watch it carefully!
The cat surveying his kingdom! To his right is the pot of fragrant, indoor narcissi which I planted in early November, I think. They showed green shoots quite quickly but have not progressed that much although they look healthy enough.
That’s it again. We are hoping for a few days away sometime soon but the weather forecast for Cornwall is pretty dismal progressing to awful! Never mind, we will take our souwesters and wellies plus a few good books and enjoy the food! Have a good weekend.
