Sitting out!

After promising warm weather all week, yesterday the sun was out, and more importantly, there wasn’t any wind. We managed to have a cup of tea on the patio in the afternoon.

Today, we were able to have lunch outside - glorious. We both had to have sun hats on as we were squinting!

Having a rest now before giving Ruby a wash. She has not been too well poo wise so is in need of a good clean to freshen her up. She was trimmed earlier, such a smart girl now. Need to clip her nails tomorrow and trim her feet. Then she will be good to go for a while.

Once she is done, I will do a bit more weeding in the new border. It is infested with comfrey which we must have accidentally strewn around last year. I really hope to get it done whilst the good weather is here.

DB is going to level the edging stones along the path in the fruit cage. We have also put the top net back on to keep the birds out. The buds are slowly beginning to break on the fruit bushes and last year, the sparrows were stripping them off:(

Although it is early, there are the white tip beginnings of blossom buds on the plums. They could do with waiting a little otherwise frost will destroy them.

    1. I find February does this occasionally then March has a strop and let’s us know winter is still here.

  4. I'm envious of your early spring gardening. The closest I can come is I have bought vegetable seeds for planting and tonight we are getting a thundershower. With snow still in piles around the farm. Thankfully it has been melting and next week we will have sunshine and warm temps again.

    1. We can get nice days in February but March and April often come back to bite us!
