So far this week…

I’ve planted all the onion sets Red Fen and Sturon, and the first early seed potatoes Arran Pilot and Swift along with the second earlies Charlotte.

I’ve sowed a double row of broad bean The Sutton seeds and a short row of beetroot  Baby Beat seeds.

I’ve direct sowed flower seeds cornflowers (centaurea cyanus) Polka Dot,  love-in-a-mist (nigella dasmascena) Persian Jewels, poached egg plants (limnanthes douglasii) and sunflowers helianthus annuus) Musicbox.

This is one of the lovely double-headed white narcissus Thalia that are in the long planter.

I find the centres of tulips fascinating, like this red Toronto,

and the all yellow Bellona.

It’s been dry, sunny and rather warm, which looks set to continue through the weekend before getting breezy and cooler into next week.

Have a good weekend!

    We’ve had some lovely weather to get some jobs done and it’s another beautiful day today. The daffodils are still blooming here, no tulips as yet but they won’t be far behind.

    You have Toronto in your header too. They are a lovely colour. Thalia is one of my favourite narcissi.
    You have been busy this week. May all seeds grow well!

    I love those Thalia daffodils – although yellow is so bright and cheerful, I like the purity of the white ones and, in fact, bought some miniature white daffs (Snow Baby) last weekend at the Ascot Spring Garden show. Isn’t this weather glorious! A bit hot for me but I’m not complaining. Must sow some cornflowers, etc, myself. Looks like the gardening year is off to flying start! Have a good rest of week! xx
    PS. I visited The Swiss Garden at Shuttleworth yesterday and had a quick trot around the aircraft hangar afterwards – you would have been very impressed with the vintage planes, I’m sure! But perhaps you’ve already been … ?

      Caro mine too, and I agree. I like the look of Snow Baby so may well get some. it sure is. And for me too once it gets into the mid 20’s. It certainly does. Thanks, and you too.
      Lucky you. I used to visit Old Warden every year when I was a keen aviation enthusiast as I’ve always liked vintage aircraft. I have looked round The Swiss Garden a couple of times as well. xx

    Looks like you’ve had a great gardening week. Very pretty, pure, white flower. Its petals seems translucent. So unique. And those fascinating, pretty tulips….something seems to glow from their centres!

    Dry and sunny sounds like just the thing as you enjoy your sweet spring flowers.

    Looks like everything is perking up. You will be able to enjoy plotting again. xxx

    I do like Thalia, so delicate! Love those tulips too, I’m forever staring into the centers of them. You are certainly cracking on, that must feel so good, especially in good weather. It’s turned cold here again….sighs….xxx
