I did some plotting…

on Friday and yesterday morning when it was sunny and there wasn’t a chill wind.


Looking round it was good to see the crocuses Snow Bunting had opened and there were plenty of honeybees on them.



I hoed and weeded the area where I’ll be growing onions this year,  and I worked my way through the younger strawberry plants in preparation for replanting them sometime soon.

The robin kept me close company for much of the time.





Looking round I was pleased to see that the vinca major by the teasels at the end of the log pile has finally flowered, and the first of the dwarf tulips are starting to appear.

It looks like being wet most of tomorrow and then getting colder again, so I guess that I won’t be doing any more plotting for at least a few days.

Have a good week!

    Gosh your spring growth is well on. We saw some Snowdrops sprouting this morning, one or two flowering as well. This is quite late even for us. xx

    How encouraging to see signs of life on the plot. Winter remains,, and the weather is a bit unpredictable still, but your early signs of spring bring hope!

  4. Liz says:

    Your new signs of life are way ahead of mine, although there are snowdrops, a few species crocus, and hellebores showing up. We are expecting one day in the 70sF and another at 80F this week. February — in a temperate zone???

    Lovely that there are bees around and that your crocuses are providing some early nectar. A bit of gardening here at the weekend – grass cut, raised beds weeded. It’s almost time. CJ xx

    Robin’s are unusually cheering. Blackbirds turn up too when people are digging but are more clearly there for food than company – which is presumably exactly the same with robins; except robins have a different vibe.

    Lovely to see your photos. Spring plants are so exciting. I planted tulips last Autumn and mine are showing now. Best wishes

    It was heaven to see the sun again at the weekend, we need more of it after a long winter. Robins are just great garden companions.

    I like those Snow Bunting crocus, such a pretty colour. There’s signs of life all around now, a sure sign that spring is on the way, though we’re also forecast some colder weather again so I don’t think it’ll be here just quite yet.

    This is a gorgeous post full of life and hope. Thank you for helping me remember that we must enjoy each and every little signal that spring is inching closer. Lovely photo of your robin 🙂

  11. Vinca…..😱 it’s driving me nuts on the old house garden….it’s rampant and very, very annoying. Do I let it do it’s thing or get rid of it all? I think I know the answer to that…..I need to give in like I have the ivy! Hello little robin….,I have a robin friend who follows me about looking for worms. Nice to have found your blog. Xx
