J has juggled work, chores, hospital visits, long train journeys, early starts and late finishes, and also being a bloody wonderful human being - I'm lucky to have several in my life! Thank you my love. He's off up the allotment today to put the potatoes in as the chits on the Homeguard were getting so long we had visions of the marching off up the road on their own - it's safe to say they really want to grow!
Yesterday I managed a bit of a potter around the garden, visiting with seedlings and seeing what has bloomed in the last week and what is showing promise for the next month or so. We have some beautiful violets, wallflowers, muscari and cowslips all now in full flow and the bulb pots around the front are looking wonderful. My evening photography skills need a bit of work - and my hand might not have been as steady as I would have liked but below are some snaps from dusk yesterday. All being well we'll be pricking out some tagetes and petunias later and thinking about sowing some herbs too. Soil and plants are as usual helping with those baby steps back to me. Bye for now Txx
