It’s been another good week with plenty of sunshine, and it’s also been unseasonably warm the past couple of days.
On the plot I’ve been sowing flower and vegetable seeds, including a short row each of beetroot Ruby Queen and lettuce Mixed.
Yesterday there were lots of ladybirds on the blackthorn, which is now losing it’s blossom and starting to show leaves.
A week ago at home I sowed various seeds including these six sunflowers Tall Single which appeared in a couple of days, and are now at least 2″ high with the second set of leaves just visible.
In complete contrast the coleus Fairway are minute green pinheads.
Back in February I sent Liz, who does her guest Tree Following posts here, some flower seeds including pot marigolds Flighty’s Favourites. As a thank you she kindly sent me a card along with this watering can bookmark which made me smile.
Happy gardening, and have a good weekend!
