All the beds are made, dug over . Some beds are full already with annuals i sowed in the Autumn . The Cornflowers were chewed by the rabbits but they have come back strong and healthy!

Still cannot get my head around larger numbers, but this is the trial year.Iv potted on loads of Dahlias (my favourites) so it will be lovely to see them all in their glory. I picked the first crop this week. Tulip `Queen of the night` and Narcissus `Bridal crown` , created a lovely scent in the shop.

Phew- the chickens are OK!!

Iv lost my best scarf and I'm getting to grips with my new glasses.


Lambs blocking the road towards the church (not the church we were suppose to decorate last Friday) so turn round head back for home-phew, flowers didn't even come out of the buckets. Would have been interesting??

Ede is in my bad books, She did a runner (so unlike her ,doesn't usually go out the gate) went after chickens across the road. Thank goodness the owners were kind about it and brought her back. I think she may have the scent for it now . I'm watching her like a hawk today . The the fence goes up! Funny she doesn't bother with our hen.

Attention , Ede speaking.

`Come on , how much gardening are you going to do today?? Iv been sitting here for hours now . I m lovely and warm , but i need a walk, OK?`

Cheery cherry blossom

Hyacinth `Woodstock` Deep rich colour, like beetroot.

Oh, er!!

Humbug, our only hen is feeling very friendly! She sat up on Poppy`s shoulders for a while. She has stopped giving us eggs now -perhaps she is lonely. We need to get some mates for her?

Spring has defiantly sprung , as iv been busy with a spot of Spring cleaning. I'm not a great fan of house work, the garden wins hands down. Something quite satisfying about moving things around and slap in on a lick of paint . The kitchen has gone pastel.
