... In Our Garden and Allotment
Every day I am drawn into the garden to admire the newly opened flowers and I have taken many photos, but I haven't gotten around to posting them. So here is a quick catch up of what was happening in our garden and at our allotment during May.
The viburnum opulus, or snowball bush, bloomed profusely this year.
The May garden was awash with blue forget-me-nots, much loved by the butterflies.
The wisteria put on an amazing display again this year.
As the month progressed more and more flowers bloomed.
including my homegrown sweet peas.
In the greenhouse I grew lots of vegetables and flowers from seed,
I was busy at the allotment, planting out
and sowing seeds.
Everything grows quickly during May, including the weeds!
We are now harvesting the lettuces.
I made a new friend there.
I picked lots of sprouting broccoli for our evening meals.
Our son helped me with some of the digging.
I also planted runner beans,
courgettes and dwarf beans.
The potatoes I am growing in an old water butt have sprouted and been topped up with compost.
The forget-me-nots were taking over the allotment too!
The birds have been very busy in and around the garden,
and raising their young
All whilst keeping an eye on the cats!
Although Maurice seemed more interested in tanning his white bits! :)
This little blue tit fell out of the nest. Luckily I found him and was able to return him to his family.
By the end of may the garden had exploded with flowers and not a patch of soil was to be seen!
Just how I like it! :)
