Project Garden In Full Swing Again!

It’s warming up and spring seems to have arrived, so we are back out there and kick-starting Project Garden again. It’s all gone a little quiet over the last few weeks, but the plans have continued forming, and so now I need to do something about them!

As always, my mum is on hand to help! We made a start a couple of days ago, and it did feel nice to be back out there. I spotted a few flowers out and shoots coming through…

We planted up some Asiatic lilies, which were a lovely gift from Iona at Redpeffer, and I’m so looking forward to seeing them bloom..

The children enjoyed some bubbles time (Boo chased them, Little Man stood right in front of the machine and laughed as they hit him!)

And then Mum (I’m not going to lie – it wasn’t me!) cut back the clematis climbing all over the shed, planted up a new daisy and mowed the lawn – yes, yes, I know, you all want her! It all looks loads tidier for it.

I’m very conscious of how bare the fence looks, as it was a new one put in last year, but I’m hoping that as the weather warms, the many climbers that I planted last year will start to come into their own and cover it up.

Mum is coming over again tomorrow, so we will make more progress, and then we really need to get that shed down behind the rockery mound.Β There is another shed behind that one, so we’ll have to move a few things about and de-clutter them to do this.Β Once that’s done, we can start to level what was the rockery, and get going on the cut flower patch, fruit area and wildlife garden. Boo is particularly keen to help us make the wildlife garden, and I’m certain she’ll be very interested in the fruit once it starts to grow!

Have you been getting outside into your garden now that the weather is a little warmer?
