It’s all happening.... spring is springing!


By sueb


I went for a wander in the garden yesterday morning and was pleasantly surprised by all the plants that have popped up over the last week. Then it was into the greenhouse to see if any more seeds have decided to poke through what a difference a bit of sunshine makes. It’s all gone mad. I would have loved to stay and potter clean up the beds. Water a bit and weed but I had errands to run which would take me by the market ……Well what do you think happened?

I know what you mean Sueb, have been wandering around my garden and seeing new growth starting up at long last! Great blog, and what a bargain your Nandina was! I have one in my garden and I love it. Is it my imagination or have plants in garden centres shot up in price all of a sudden???

Thank you Floribunda~ It's not your imagination garden centre prices have shot up. Thats why I have been going to the market and the WI markets as well some great bargians, you have just got to hunt for them.
