HAPPY NEW WEEK and HAPPY FULL MOON!
The moon turns full next Saturday, 16 April. Here, it's known as the "Pink Moon."
I hope everyone has a joyful, healthy spring week!
Spring is taking its time to arrive here. I had a long period of snow last night. Our Weather Service warned us ahead of time that we'd have some cold nights with icy rain, and then snow and a hard frost well into morning. Everyone rushed to cover any new garden plants and flowers that had dared to come up.
DIANE – Thank you for starting us off. Season is supposed to be cooling here, but it’s 31 C today; I’m wafting it your way.
Sunny Sunday - J has gone supposedly for breakfast then church – not sure he was going to have time for both – can guess which took priority! Set E-E working in the garden – still too cold to sit and watch. He is planting carrot and salad seeds in the cold frames then setting out the Verbena plants in their fence troughs ready for when it is warm enpough for them to hang in place of mini daffs.. ANNETTE – second attempt at the moved shrub was successful – if it wastes away, nothing lost as it was just a “sucker” from one we like nearby. I hope your Daughter will behave herself with advice to be careful. DIANE – thanks for the new start. We are still having frosts most mornings, so keeping all tender plants protected. Sorry you are still having snow. LINDA – cheeky photobomb from Bonnie watching the hail yesterday; the occasional short showers are very wintry – tried a few drops yesterday, but none so far today. Hope you enjoyed visit to Sue and Toffee.
More garden pictures for those who like them. Grape hyacinths.
The Stellata is fading now, with few new blooms opening. It's been a joy.
Fritillaries - my Mum's favourites.
