I treated myself to some tulips this week, £2 from the market, they are still going strong and have made me smile. I love spring flowers. Colour at the end of the greyness of winter. This year I'm going to plant lots.
It's raining today, well more the 'wet you through in a minute' type of drizzle. Yesterday it rained heavily all day. It's cold too. Not much gardening going on at the moment, it's more snuggling up warm with tea and a book. I managed to get some things done this weekend, generally a tidy up and I've transplanted my strawberries out of their tin bath, and into one of my raised beds. The two remaining raised beds haven't been filled yet, I've realised I've not go enough 'stuff' to fill it with as yet, we are doing lasagne gardening, the no dig method, and will need some more layers.
I've taken possession today of two garden arches, to be placed in between the raised beds. I'm hoping they will soon be covered in delicious smelling roses. They will give much needed height to the vegetable garden. They may have French beans and squashes growing up them this year, whilst the roses get going.
I've been thinking a lot just lately about Vintage Sheet Addict...there aren't many vintage sheets anymore, I either need to start doing something with them, or change my blog name! This blog will be four years old this summer, it's flown. Thank you for being here and for reading. I'd love to know who you all are, but perhaps being 'unseen' is part of what you enjoy. It really is quite a funny business this blogging malarkey...kinda like it though.
You may have notice my blog list has disappeared. I wanted to rearrange it but some how can't get it back on, I really am quite dangerous when left to my own devices! I will endeavour to correct this.
Soon be the weekend...I've got a shed to organise, and a little greenhouse to clean, ready for some seed sowing. Oh, and I'd love a raspberry patch so had better get onto that before it's too late. What plans do you have for the weekend...I'd love to hear.
