Sunny Weekend


Just had 2 lovely but busy days catching up in the garden after a very cold wet and windy week last week,everything planted so far is making good progress peas, lettuce,turnips,onion sets ,mixed salad leaves,parsnips and carrots, planted up some more seeds and did some potting on as well. OH did some weed killing and I waged war on the dreaded Vine weevil and snails in that order and of course used every opportunity to be outdoors as much as possible just enjoying all the old and new faces in the garden………was getting a bit stir crazy last week.Here
are a few pics

The skies on Friday

Rain imminent

Now on Sunday

A happy accident

A sweet dwarf rhododendron

1 of the loves of my life Archie in a favourite spot

We are back to the rain and cold today so its just as well that we took advantage at the weekend…

Thanks for the comments all..........
Ojibway - front garden is south facing and is semi-sheltered from the north wind so does quite well........
Hywel-we have had a mixed bag as is usual up here in NE Scotland some lovely days but very cold.........
Lincslass.........Archie does like that spot he can watch all that goes on and still be warm .....
Bjs-Archie is a Lab/Cocker Spaniel cross which is the reason he fits the window cill,all the lab body just smaller which suits us fine and he has a beautiful nature ,a friend to all ,people as a well as other animals............
