A change of routine

I generally go to the plot in the mornings around nine o’clock for two or three hours but last week I had a change of routine.  For a few days it was frosty and sunny so I had an early lunch then went when it had warmed up slightly.


The ground is still soggy so all I did was some cursory hoeing and weeding through the areas where I’ll be growing onions and potatoes, whilst chatting with Bob the robin who tends to perch in the rose Pretty Lady. 


In complete contrast yesterday and today have been misty and murky so I’ve been armchair gardening finishing sorting, checking and counting  the saved flower seeds.

The week ahead looks like being mostly dry so hopefully I may be able to resume digging out the compost heap, and perhaps prune the dog rose.

Take care, and have a good week!

  1. Yes, we’ve had a bit of a mixed bag where the weather’s concerned here too. The fog’s cleared today, though we’re forecast more this coming week. That’s a lovely photo of Bob, he must be used to you by now allowing you a little extra time to get a good shot.

  2. I avoided the garden yesterday, it seemed a bit too chilly to tackle the hedge. I do have a seed catalogue to browse though, so I’m happy. Lovely shot of Bob and your soil is looking very clean and ready for some spring planting. CJ xx


  3. I’m envious of your wonderful, well-tended soil. Bob is posed beautifully for his portrait.
    We’re due for another round of wintry weather starting later this morning: sleet, freezing rain and snow. Bring on spring!


  4. That’s a great photograph of Bob 🙂

    We’ve had sunshine today and a lovely blue sky, but warnings for fog have been given, so wait and see what tomorrows weather will bring!

    Have a good week.

    All the best Jan
