Spring has certainly sprung in our garden with the promise of more to come. We’ve had sunshine this week but still very cold winds and not really enough rain. (We don’t often say that in Cornwall.)
1. The tulips in pots are magnificent.
2. The Sweet Pea seedlings are coming along nicely. We have popped fleece around them when frosts were predicted. It’s almost time to tie them in.
3. To accommodate the new Amanagowa Cherry tree, the lovely Mr S has re-designed the lawn and the curve is very pleasing.
4. The buds on the tree are almost ready to burst.
5. Baby plants arrived today from Sarah Raven, ordered with Christmas and birthday vouchers from family. I have potted up the Cosmos and the Osteospermum, some of which will be in the pollinator border at the allotment and some at home. The tulips above were also bought with birthday vouchers. It’s really lovely to have presents that keep on appearing. We’ll be able to eat some of them too as we also bought vegetable seeds and baby plants yet to arrive. .
6. Because we now have the allotment, I am having one of the raised beds in the garden for cutting flowers. There is already a line of Sweet Peas by the trellis and today we have dug the last of our leeks to make space for my flower garden. So, not strictly garden, here is the Leek and Chicken Pie I made for supper tonight.
