Hello, Dear Readers,
I took the opportunity to do some sewing at my handicraft group this week and hope to have my Spring Purse finished by the weekend - and if the weather is bright enough there will be pictures!
However, I would just like to show you the pretty display of tulips we have at the moment. And some plants which flowered earlier, specifically with the bees and butterflies in mind, for the time when there are not many flowers about.
We have opted for the natural, wildlife look, this is to encourage newts, slow worms and frogs and maybe hedgehogs too, if we are lucky. Strimmers are definitely banned!
|The bees love this plant - it's a shame we can't remember what |
it is called, as it is now at least 10 years old
|Marsh marigolds thriving in our garden pond|
|Another favourite for the bees!|
|Our amazing rhubarb patch! It seems better than usual this year,|
I think we must be having just the right combination of sun and rain
|More early plants for the bees on the right.|
|Erysimum, forget-me-knots and tulips|
I hope everyone is enjoying the Spring flowers (not just our flowers here, I mean out and about!).
We will be going in search of bluebells this weekend and hopefully some more cowslips.
Keep well, "see" you soon.
