This week so far

As planned I’ve planted out the first early potatoes Pentland Javelin. As I’ve not grown them before it’ll be interesting to see how they do, and more importantly how they taste.

The only other job I’ve done this week so far is to rough cut round the grass path edges.

The lovely, elegant white daffodils Thalia are now flowering, providing a good contrast to the yellow ones.

The long weekend looks like staying dry but getting noticeably colder, and breezy, again with it feeling only a couple of degrees C above zero by next Monday.Β  That’s in contrast to Tuesday when it was well over 20 C/ 68 F.

Take care, and have a good Easter!

    The Thalia daffodils are such a magnificent sight. Mine are running about a week after yours with just the green leaves appearing, no blooms yet.
    The weather is so changeable.
    Happy April 1!

    Those virginal Daffodils are eye-catching, one of the reasons being that they are unexpected. We are so used to yellow-based colour combinations. xxx

    Elegant Thalia. Mine are in bud so won’t be long now! Spent yesterday sowing lots of seeds, including your pot marigold seeds! Having had a lovely couple of days l gather we are going back to chilly weather, just in time for Easter of course! Still, wishing you a good one, Andy x

    The Thalia daffodils are lovely as ever, I don’t think I’ve ever seen them anywhere else, they really are white aren’t they. I treated myself to another dahlia tuber today (Verrone’s Obsidian) and a pink margherite together with a couple of little pink dianthus to go together in a pot. The cold snap will be a shock after a warm couple of days. Have a lovely Easter Flighty. CJ xx

      CJ it’s little wonder they’re so popular. Yes, just about pure white. Good for you. It sure will be, it was chilly on the plot this morning and set to get even colder. Thanks, and you too. xx

    I’ve grown Pentland Javelin before and I was pleased with the taste and yield, it’ll be interesting to hear what you think of them. The Thalia daffodils are lovely, traditional yellow ones are my favourites but as you say, these are a good contrast. The temperatures have plummeted here, we went for a walk yesterday and the wind was bitter, I could have done with my hat and gloves.

    Brrr. Here’s to more 20C+ days to come! Thalia is elegant indeed.

    Thalia blooms later..late May early June in my neck of the woods. I love my daffodils.

    Good to know the early spuds are in, I’ve never grown them either so it will be interesting seeing how they perform. Just loving your Thalia, mine are gracing the garden too. Here’s too some warmer weather!xxx
