Six on Saturday: Spring is here!

Here are my Six on Saturday and finally, Spring is here! We have enjoyed some Spring sunshine this week after such a cold spell. The garden is waking quickly now and you can see the growth each day. I have been busy weeding, mulching and sowing seeds this week. It’s been a busy time as we have also finished the wildlife pond.

Creating a Wildlife Pond in the Old House Garden

We started this project in February when we decided to move the Building that the cats slept in! Honestly, that was all the little house was used for!

What we hadn’t expected was the cold and snowy weather we had in March which really put our plans behind. However, this Easter we have finished the wildlife pond and it looks fabulous!

Aside from being a great hobby, gardening teaches you a lot of things like patience, discipline, and responsibility.

6 on Saturday: A review of 2017 in the old house garden.

I was reading the usual 6 on Saturday posts which I love and Thomas posted about his 6 favourite garden successes of 2017. I thought I would join in too! The weather here in Wiltshire is very stormy with high winds and lashing rain so plans to start digging out the new pond will have to wait!
