9 May

Second week of may
09/05/11

Well it seems as if the glorious weather is going to continue!!

There have been a couple of weeds growing through in the last week, mainly I think because we had a good few downpours of rain, so as I looked out of the window this morning and noticed them ruining my garden satisfaction I went out to tidy up.

I always get carried away in the garden, and what was meant to be an hour before I began my knitting, turned into 4!!!

I got the grass cut, which is looking lovely!!

Then I got on with the weeding! The main areas were the pond (still with no plants!! Agh, got to get to the garden centre!)
It’s looking better now!

And the vegetable patch had some little ones which didn’t take long so I also re spaced my broccoli

And my cabbage

I moved the yukka and the raspberry bush to the other border beside the lavender

And tidied and re arranged the front section to look as good as the back

The good thing is that everything else has been shooting up as well as the weeds!!

    It looks amazing!!! I love your little carrot tops poking out of the soil. I can’t believe you’ve already had a lettuce harvest — although with the weather as good as it has been, I shouldn’t be. Man. I need to get to B&Q so I can get started, too. It will have to wait till I get back from Munich.
