I'd only got a couple of jobs to do in the garden this morning, funny how times runs away when you are outside isn't it? An hour or two turned into all afternoon, I didn't mind, it was mostly pottering as I had cut the grass on Friday.
The birds kept me company, I could hear lots of Goldfinch up in our oak tree, although none have come to feed yet, I have spotted them on the roof. Jo has told me what food to put out to encourage them, I didn't think I had what she recommended but then, when I looked, I had bought some special finch food. I'll put some out in the morning and see what happens.
We have had them in the garden other years so perhaps we'll be lucky again.
The girls bought me this wooden bird table for Mothers Day a couple of year ago, it was in need of freshening up so that was one of my jobs today.
I love the faded look of the Pieris now
We still have some late tulips flowering on one side of the path
Our Azalea has opened up over the last few days and the bluebells are out too
We have more flowers on our Rhododendron this year
My favourite hosta's are doing well again. Mark really doesn't like these, I love them :-)
And my lilies have come back. I planted these last year and wasn't sure they would come again. They have grown so much in the last week
I have little pots of seeds lining the conservatory window, some salad, and some which will hopefully bring lots of summer colour in the garden. I'll show you the progress of those in another post.
We are very lucky to have such a good outdoor space to enjoy, especially now. When i'm out there pottering, I can forget for a while what is going on, It calms me, keeps me sane and gives me hope.
Keep safe and well all
