Even though the weather has been swinging from one extreme to the other this spring, the flowers have still put on a good show in the garden.
The tulips looked lovely during April.
In the patio pots I grew some bellis
As we moved into May the hardy geraniums started to bloom. These are much loved by the bees.
I like to grow native wildflowers in our garden.
The poppies are starting to bloom; a flash of orange to contrast with the blue of the forget-me-nots and the purple of the geraniums.
The wisteria is looking and smelling beautiful at this time.
At the weekend we bought two water troughs, which we have turned into planters.
I have sprayed them a pale blue and they now sit at one end of our patio, behind the garage waiting to be filled with soil.
Other new additions to the garden are these birdcages that will sit on the patio table when I have planted them up.
I found some lovely hydrangeas in Lidl at a reasonable price, which I shall pot up too.
It's all going on in the greenhouse! Lots of vegetable seedlings ready for the allotment and tomato plants to stay in here.
In April I started planting at the newer allotment
I have a lot more to do and I'm a little behind this year with having been away and the colder weather has delayed things.
At the weekend we had our first BBQ of the year to celebrate M's birthday.
Of course there was also cake! :)
