The Winter Garden is often ignored and I understand as it often wet, dark and cold at this time of year and the last thing you want to do is get into the garden to do jobs! However, getting outside in the winter is important for our health; it gives us a boost and keeps us fit. There are lots of jobs you can be getting on with in the garden in the Winter.
It’s been 2 weeks since my last round up and I’m going to take a 2 week blogging break so this will be my last post for a while.
The garden is in it’s prime at the moment. My Mother in Law is here to stay and I’m so pleased she has brought the sunshine with her!
WEEK 2 ROUND UP
Thank you to the 9 link ups we had this week! That’s amazing! Thank you to all who linked up. I really enjoyed reading all of your posts. I do hope to see you again. x
Ive been so busy that I haven’t written the weekly round up of the old house garden! May is such a busy month in the english garden and the old house garden is no exception! It has grown so much since my last post that I am sure you will really see the difference.
Anyway, here are the photos!
We have been planting out the vegetables this weekend. In our vegetable beds we have peas, beans, cucumbers, rhubarb and peppers. I also hope to plant out a pumpkin. In the greenhouse we have tomatoes.
The pond area is also looking lovely as the foxgloves are beginning to flower.
Finally, I took some photographs over the weekend which have come out really well. The first is a Clematis taken at night. It was illuminated by the lights and looked so pretty.
The other picture I love is my Meconopsis which is flowering in the old house garden! I am so thrilled as these are quite tricky to grow. There is only one at the moment but another is coming through! These small things make me happy!
I hope you all had a great weekend.
My patio was looking so tired and sad! It needed something to brighten it up but it is south-facing and very hot in the summer so I tend to forget about plants I have planted by the house! Instead, I decided to empty all the old pots and planters I had around the garden and make them into something pretty for this area.
