Borders filling out nicely [A continuation of getting ready for April].


So far this month I have done very little in the garden, some very light weeding with no soil under my nails. :p
Yesterday, Easter Sunday I bought 8 delphiniums, 4 lupins and 4 Phlox sublata which I planted out in the afternoon.
Lots of plants are putting on some decent growth.

Border next to the pavement 3 weeks ago.

Border today.

Border in front of house 3 weeks ago.

Same border today.

The bed by our drive 3 weeks ago.

The bed by our drive today.

Today husband Steve and I have been tidying the house. Washing skirtings etc, moving ‘stuff’ off surfaces etc.
16 days to go.

Looking very good. I, too, noticed how quickly plants have grown in the last couple of weeks. Goodness, the spring cleaning is well advanced. I can't seem to even get started on mine...

Garden looking good. Your soil looks very friable, easily worked. Mine still soggy and you cant see the soil for Muscari and Bluebells.

My, you have worked so hard and its looking really good. Hope you are timing things to give yourself a couple of days rest before It. It seems a very long time since all that dress shopping doesn't it?
