I was recently looking through the photos that I’ve taken during last year and was pleased to see several that I can use as header pictures.
I’m starting with this one of a gardener’s friend on one of this gardener’s favourite flowers!
Sweet peas were one of my real successes from sowing seeds in pots indoors to cutting a bunch of fragrant flowers to bring home.
I usually start any plot visit by walking round looking at the plants and any wildlife, although there’s not been much to see during the past few months. Perhaps it was just the brown, ripped topped, sunflower stems or an elusive dunnock feeding on seed that I’d scattered on the ground.
I’m going to have a second pond! This one is a green plastic dustbin lid that is about 21 inches diameter and, at most, 3 inches deep. I’m hoping that the birds will use it as a bath and insects, such as dragonflies, will be attracted to it.
I’m aiming to do that, and build my new compost bin, sometime during the next few weeks whilst the ground hopefully dries out enough to be able to start some serious plotting!
Here’s one of my plot best photos which is a reminder of sunny, warm days!
