We have a severe weather warning in place for this afternoon. Whether it reaches us or not is yet to be seen! It has started raining now so we will just have to wait and see.
Over the past few days we have had lots of great sunny spells. We have been outside as much as possible. I've been weeding and planting and deciding on what to plant next and where. I'm hoping to successfully transfer some of the rosemary around to the front. It grows in abundance and is happy left to its own devices. I love low maintenance plants. The raised vege boxes have been cleared and will be filled with strawberries and blueberries.
My vege garden (as always) needs some TLC. I have been neglecting it, but with the warmer weather nearing I feel more motivated to work in it.
My very strange hydrangea plants are heavy with flowers. I'm hoping that this corner will be filled with these, my favourite flower. I'm hoping that they fill out more and keep flowering. I have already had to re plant them once (this time a little lower so they stay sturdy) thanks to our pooch Maybell digging them up.
The blossoms are turning to bright green leaves - I can't wait for the fruit to appear. We have plum, apricot and two different types of peach trees. The apricot tree was heaving last year, fingers crossed it does the same again.
This week while Bell has been at school and Tom at Kindy, George and I have been pottering around. The make shift ramp above that Bell found has been worth its weight in gold! Hours of fun and George just loves it. He drags his bike up the stairs and scoots down with his feet held high. So cute to watch.
I'm not green fingered but I really enjoy it. I love being outside digging around. I find it really calming and like the fact that I have something other than the house and kids to focus on. I like that the boys come and dig/weed by me Getting dirty and having a natter. What's more I seem to be getting more and more successful when it comes to keeping plants alive. Although I seem to weed more than anything else at the moment.
Do you love your garden?
Am I turning more and more into a nana? I don't have knee rests and a "gardening hat"..............yet?!
