I’ve been to the plot every morning this week where I’ve been planting potatoes and onions, and sowing broad beans. It’s good to have started properly plotting again.
The daffodils are providing plenty of colour, including this one lonely one which I obviously missed when I dug the rest up to move them. When it’s finished flowering I will replant it and several others as well.
I’ve now decided on what flowers are going where, and have already put the cane wigwam up for the sweet peas.
It’s The Year of the Sunflower so I’m going to make a special effect with mine.
Coming out of home yesterday morning around 9.00am I stopped and took the picture below left, and when I returned three hours later took the one on the right.
As you can see the nearest tree has been removed just leaving the stump. It’s always sad to see mature trees go but this one was dead and the worry was that it would eventually topple in high winds.
One advantage for me is that I now get more light in the living room which any plants on the window sill will appreciate. At the moment I’ve just this one remaining Coleus blumeii Carefree Mixture but will be sowing some Coleus blumeii Fairway for new plants.
It’s dull and wet this morning, and the weather through the weekend looks like being wet and windy at times so I guess that I’ll just be pottering.
Have a good weekend!
