I’m sitting looking at the windows with the rain pouring down, leaving silvery trails. Finally, we have some rain. Sounds odd to even say that considering how much rain we had this winter. But ever since I planted out my shallots and garlic, it has been bone dry! I’ve been watering the garden. In March. Crazy. So I’m pleased the garden is getting a soaking.
But I’m also disappointed. Because aside from a quick snap on my phone of a hyacinth from earlier this week, I missed my opportunity to get out into the garden with my camera in time for this week’s How does your garden grow?
So instead I’m going to share a small number of pictures I’ve taken this week of my garden in my home. Flowers I’ve brought in and that have brought colour and inspiration, lifting my spirits and reminding me that despite this cold snap, spring is still trying to break through.
I adore these blues and purples.
And here’s the only outdoor snap of the week….they looked so cute, and must only be about an inch tall!
And what flower collection at this time of year would be complete without splashes of daffodil yellow?
In fact these flowers and the sunshine on the weekend inspired me to learn to crochet sunbursts…
I have been really busy in the garden trying to get it in a fit state for an Easter egg hunt this coming weekend. I’ve cleared pots, sowed peas, dug over borders and fertilised the rose garden. It’s all looking a lot fresher..and quite nice in some parts.
I’m joining in once more with Annie’s marvellous How does your garden grow?
