What another glorious morning! This week’s temperatures are rising between 8-10C and in the sunshine will be much warmer still! Clouding over this afternoon. Tuesday another sunny start to the day, some showers in the afternoon, but note strong westerly winds! Wednesday the winds easing, mainly cloudy, some sun in the afternoon. Thursday and Friday a bit of sunshine and clouds in the morning and in the afternoons a shower or two. Not a bad week!
With the temperatures rising, shoots and buds are bursting all round the garden, very exciting! This means the weeds and the grass too are starting to grow at a pace. We still need to finish weeding the big perennial borders. Elsewhere I have pulled out any young Ragwort my eye can spot but I am sure I have missed the usual few!
I have sown our vegetable seeds in clear plastic punnet containers (the sort that Pears are sold in) because an ordinary seed tray I find is too shallow for brassica seedlings. The flower seeds are sown in seed trays and still have to make an appearance.
The time to feed roses has come – with a good measure of well rotted manure for the greedy shrubs!
David is being kept busy with some drystone walling which is not the easiest of tasks especially if the stones are not all flat sided!
I am sure this will keep me occupied this week, although there are always little tasks that crop up for attention.
