Garden - and herbs especially - going like the clappers with all the rain we've been having. It is so tempting every morning to whip out the camera and record the progress, but there are only so many pictures of green things growing you can blog about!
The Clematis doing quite nicely, waiting to be joined by the rose on the other side.
The lovely Aquilegia / Columbine /Granny's Bonnet nod at me as I walk past - these are the seeds of some very old plants brought from my sister Diana's 3-houses ago house, still going strong. You can just make out the tiny white flowers of the eyebright I planted years ago, and soon the geranium / cranesbill will be filling the garden.
Sorrel, rocket and Welsh Onion, which I planted doing really well- the sorrel will come up year after year, and makes a lovely sharp, lemony addition to a salad.
Looks a bit of a hotch - potch over this side, but it all makes sense when the flowers are out. I really do NOT like the grasses which Jim added, just wispy untidy bits of nothing to my mind, but there you go, not as intrusive as the Dratted Beech sapling!
I'd love to say we've been enjoying sitting out in all this lush greenness, but despite the sunshine, the wind is quite cool, and it's no pleasure sitting about, or eating, when you aren't warm enough! Hopefully (PLEEEEEEESE) we will have some real Spring/Summer weather soon. I know some of you have had better temperatures than others - I got caught in FOUR hailstorms the other day, and the temperature varied between 4 and 8 degrees all morning. Weird.
Just a quick little post today, but I couldn't let these photos go to waste! Hope you can all enjoy your gardens this Bank Holiday.
