I used to be very good at blogging about garden updates but like the lack of green fingered posts on here, there has been a lack of actual horticulture too. I’ve nothing to write about! Unlike other years, no seeds have been planted, I’ve barely weeded, and only this morning did I dig over one of the veg beds. Time is more of an issue these days. I’m working more and don’t get the chance to pop outside to keep apace with the plants. But do you know what? It has sort of been looking after itself! I suppose I’ve given it enough attention in the past, that there is still beautiful stuff to see now. It’s OK too because I haven’t completely missed the boat. This coming weekend is the Easter bank holiday and I believe there might be some kind of law which dictates that one must do gardening during all day light hours over this four day stretch. I have time to catch up.
In the meantime, here’s what has happened so far this spring…
So despite having done nothing at all, things aren’t looking too bad. Yes, there’s mess but I’m not fussed about a neatly manicured lawn or the composting mountain of last year’s runner beans and courgette plants. But I will be worried if I don’t get my arse in gear next weekend. I’m gonna blitz it. Probably.

Enjoyed your garden pics – much like my own at this time of year, and we’ve both made the same poetic reference!
Thank you so much! It has already changed in the last few days!
I like the term “hosta horns”…a perfect description!
Ha! I thought so!! 😀
All nice names for patterns.
Are you coming to Amsterdam?
Flowers/plants do make nice names for things. I’d love to come to Amsterdam but sadly I can’t afford it. It’s one of my favourite cities! 😀
You have some beautiful plants in your garden, and you definitely haven’t missed the boat! We are doing loads of planting this weekend, I can’t wait.
I haven’t done any planting this weekend! Tomorrow!! 😀
I’ve been wondering when you were going to post about your garden. I love seeing/reading about it 😊 We’ve been busy in ours this weekend – hope you got to spend some time in yours. Think that’s a magnolia stellata by the way 😁
Yep, I’ve been slacking. But not today!! Still out in the garden, planting seeds.
I bet your garden looks stunning!! 😄
