I am really loving our garden at the moment, it holds such promise. My sweet peas are doing well, no flowers yet, but they are thriving. My clematis is in full bloom and provides a welcome splash of colour at the bottom of the garden where my blue-bells have started flowering. The wild garlic is very happy under the Sycamore tree, and although it has spread a little (it can spread like wildfire!) it doesn’t seem too wild.
Inspired by The Edible Garden
I have planted dried peas (40p from the supermarket) and amazingly they have started sprouting, they are intended just to be used for salads as pea-shoots. I really enjoyed this series and loved the fact that she loves flowers and wanted her garden to look beautiful as well as provide her with lots of goodies to eat
The lawn needs some TLC, as does the bench. I have bought some cream paint and am planning on painting it when I can work up the enthusiasm to sand it. Hubby has made a long narrow bed out of decking and we have planted green beans, carrots and beetroot. We have also got tomatoes growing in our new green house which we put up a couple of weeks ago complete with plastic windows so the boys can still play football and not cause too much damage – she says, fingers crossed.
