March in the Garden

Oooh, I’m getting a little excited about the up coming growing season.

There are violets coming out all around our garden.

Garden 1
I’m making free hanging baskets by splitting up a campanula plant, hopefully soon they will be full of tumbling purple flowers.

Garden 2
I have parsnips coming up that I haven’t planted!! (miss placed seeds from last year)

Garden 3
There’s a little row of rocket coming up…..

Garden 4
and some lettuce plugs that we were given at Easter.

Garden 5
There is something about these things that make me happy! đŸ™‚

Planting up!

I was in the garden yesterday doing some general tidying up and decided a little corner of our garden needed brightening up. So I popped to the garden centre and bought a few flowers. Sometimes it has to be done! I planted up this planter I’ve made out of a couple of old tyres.

I also planted up these two old chapel chairs that we rescued from a skip. The plants have been put where the hymn books would be put.

I do find this sort of thing very pleasing….why don’t you find something different to plant up?! đŸ™‚
