What a fantastic day today, lovely nice temperatures and nothing but blue skies!! So it’s all about the outdoors sometimes that is up on a ladder cleaning the gutters! Other times it’s about planting sweet pea… this day was both !
You just feel so great and full of energy on these lovely long fresh spring days.
I suppose it was the 5 yearly gutter cleaning , when the growth in your gutters look better than the growth in your garden then it’s definitly time.
Gutters 1/2 done (tough on the back) and it’s a nice leisurely afternoon potting Daisies pansies sweet pea, these days are full of peacefulness and mindfulness when nothing is on your mind but what you are doing! I like to mix topsoil with peat and some Miracle grow they seem to love it. I actually have a daisy from lady these that tolorated our winter and is full of life again this year, I treated it to a transplant to a bigger pot and some nice fertiliser, it looks happy.
I have started a physical diary which my daughter gave me for Mother’s Day so now I have daily written notes about what I do in my garden, I love it.
I feel like I am on top of things at least for this month, I am trying the succession growth, so hoping that I will have loads of the vegetables I will want well through the summer!! Using my garden as a fridge for my veg!! NO CARBON FOOTPRINT going on there!!
My beautiful puppy passed away this January, he was my friend for 17 1/2 years, a trooper and loved our days in the garden, a particular spot was his favorite and this is where he rests. Was putting off fixing it, too sad, but finally this weekend I made his space nice with a yellow rock rose and some yellow pansies!!! Think of him always and can see his space from my kitchen. My lucky!!!
