It's Friday so I'm joining in with Amy at Love Made my Home for this week's Five on Friday. Click on the link at the bottom of this post to find others who are joining in too.
This week the weather has been warmer and we have been able to get into the garden for longer periods of time and really start to tidy things up. Some of the grass has been cut, in other areas it has been left because it is still squelching underfoot. As I was weeding and digging under weeds I was uncovering puddles under the soil. One of our plants has been transferred to a pot to dry out as it was waterlogged.
Above is a view across the width of the garden from one side to the other. We have actually been working on the front garden as well as a tree had to come down as it was catching on the canopy over our front windows.
You can see the remains of the tree trunk in front of the side gate. The is a lot more light coming into the sitting room now. It was a leylandii tree we inherited when we moved here and was just getting too big and blocking our way to the gate so it had to go.
The old bench, which used to sit the other side of the fence, has been moved to the top of the garden as it is too fragile to sit on and broken in places. I'm going to use it to put pots of flowers on in the summer.
Lots of work has been done in the green house and many seeds planted and some tomato seedlings moved from the conservatory into the greenhouse.
Above is another view of the garden, you can just see the pond in this one.
As you can also see there is still a lot of weeding to be done.
Below are five things I've spotted in the garden this week.
3. Buds on the Amelanchier tree
4. Valerian coming into flower
5. Wild Garlic under the trees by the shed spreading into the grass
Below are two collages each with five more things spotted in the garden this week
Striped snail, pieris, peony buds, euphorbia and lupin leaves.
Honesty, one bluebell self seeded in the middle of the heather, forget-me-not, vinca or periwinkle and the first flower on the geum lemondrops.
All for now. Have a lovely weekend.
