It was good…

to get back to my usual Sunday morning routine today.

It’s sunny but there’s a bitterly cold wind so I just had a quick look round the plot where I noticed this crocus Snow Bunting.  There was a lot of heavy rain last week so the ground is soggy.  Thankfully it should dry out during the week as there’s little rain forecast.

I then went on to the horticultural society trading shed which has been closed the past two Sundays.  Not surprisingly it was quiet so we mostly chatted, drank tea and ate biscuits and mince pies.

This afternoon I’m going to have another look through the Chiltern Seeds catalogue before placing an order.

Have a good week!

  1. Great Sunday routine! What are you going to order?
    I just finished my quick check on mini greenhouse and around the garden and noticed that some tulips appeared!

  2. This cold sunny weekend has been so great for getting out in the garden. I’ve been planting shrubs. Your chat with tea and biscuits sounds wonderful – lucky you. Best wishes , Julie

    Sometimes a little peace and quiet is pleasant I find. Chatting, drinking tea and dunking biscuits sounds rather lovely. I noticed my crocus poking up through the leaves today, none flowering like yours yet, but not far off. This is a little early isn’t it?xxx

    Sounds like you had a quiet and sociable time at the plotting and shed.
    There’s a weirdness about the signs of spring in very early January and when the ambient temperatures are descending.

    Happy New Year!

    Sounds lovely and cosy in the trading shed. And an afternoon with the seed catalogue is perfect at this time of year. I shall look forward to seeing what you choose. CJ xx

    I spent both days at the plot, but it was cold..

    I like the addition of mince pies to the usual tea and biscuits. If any crocus are popping up here, they aren’t noticeable yet. I bet you’ll enjoy looking through the seed catalogue.

  8. Liz says:

    Yes, mince pies. Yum! Sounds as though you had an enjoyable walk around the plot and then some good company and sustenance.

  9. I bought a bag of daffodils in the autumn and haven’t planted them yet. In the south I could get away with daffodils not going in until just before Christmas – and tulips after Christmas. I’m trying to work up the nerve to go and put them in the ground at my new allotment but may have missed the boat in my new climate. (Would have to go under the cover of gloom to avoid being embarrassed!)

    I’ve got quite a few bulbs poking their noses above the soil now, it certainly lifts my spirits to know that spring is on the way, though it can’t come quick enough for me. Looking forward to hearing what seeds you’ve chosen and what you’ll be growing this year.

    Always so lovely to see new growth. We are having the opposite of your “bitterly cold” (83F was the high yesterday).
