At long last, all raised beds are painted. My wrists and shoulders are killing me, so after preparing two loaves of rye bread, decided to sit and enjoy a rye pizza!
A few days ago, it was so sunny in the back we had to have the awning out to stop the bedrooms from overheating (south facing). Thought I would show you a picture of the full length awning we have, to do this job. It is fully electric and fits neatly away into a metal tube making it weather proof (if away).
If it is too windy it can't be used, then we have to close the curtains but the awning is far better.
I also just noticed that the pussy willow has opened on the branches I picked to make my Easter tree.
I think it is fair to say that Spring has finally sprung! Even if it decides to snow again (shouldn't be surprised) the plants are now growing in the garden so the soil must be warm enough. Hooray!!
