Seeds, Crocuses and Long Tails

27 Feb

1    It’s almost March and we went off to the garden centre to buy seeds. One of our raised beds is going to be devoted to flowers for  for the bees and for cutting. We will still be growing three raised beds of veggies.

2   The sun was shining through the tree at the garden centre casting lovely shadows and underneath were a mass of small crocuses.

3   A family of Long Tail Tits has been at the feeders today. They are very skittish and hard to catch on camera. There were eight there at one moment, just two left by the time I had my camera ready and those two were gone in a moment.

    I looked around to see if “seeds” were out yet…but, didn’t see any…What with snow/ice still on the ground…will be another month before planting…Being in Louisville KY…we usually plant Derby Day…the first Saturday in May…chances of frost being over!

      We can plant seeds now but don’t put the little plants out until all danger of rost is passed, ie May. Here in Cornwall we are unlikely to get frosts that late though it has been known to happen. The annual flower seeds can go straight into the ground now! Last year’s self seeded Love in a mist, Nigella, are already up and about1″ tall. I’ll try to get a photo 🙂

    Your words “It’s almost March”… I really had to look again at the calendar. You are right. It is almost March. 🙂 Although some parts of the US might not agree. 🙁
