The weather has been much the same as last week so I’ve been mostly plot pottering, and it’s really been a case of just ticking over. This morning the wind was particularly chilly, and it started spitting with rain intermittently, so I came home early for a welcome cup of tea and a couple of biscuits.
At home suitable windowsill space to start plants off in pots is limited so I’ve been double checking what I’ll be doing and when. I’ll be sowing some some flowers including cosmos and sunflowers along with the tomatoes in a week or two. The cucumbers and sweetcorn will follow in late April.
Looking out of my living room window I can see this flowering skimmia japonica Rubella.
It provides welcome colour and interest among the mostly mundane plants in the communal garden.
Take care, and have a good weekend!
