I think we have had the weather of four seasons this week…there has been sun (remember last weekend when it was warm enough to sit outside?), there has been hail, and today, it is grey, overcast, chilly and wet. My plans for first of the seed planting and sorting out some of the bulb bowls today are now on hold. It is not a day to be outside, but one to be indoors with a large pot of tea. Anyway, thanks once again to The Propagator for allowing us to share what is going on in our gardens.
Anyway, not a lot new is happening outside. Things are growing, telling me it is spring, despite the fact we still have heating on and are wearing sweaters. The hebes are looking really good, as is the lavender.
So since I can’t be outside, inside there is yet to be a sign of life from the chilli seeds I planted a couple of weeks ago. Fingers crossed something pops up. I’m quite eager to start planting, but travelling for work, being sick and the weather are all conspiring against me. I am taking Monday off work so let’s hope I can get some time there to potter about with plants.
My two cyclamen are still looking good. I’m seriously thinking of getting a bunch more. They are often on offer at the garden centre, so I should wait for the chance of getting more.
Also looking good at the moment is the ficus. It just keeps going, and should really be replanted soon into a bigger pot. You can see one of the many spider plants that are in, and outside, the house. I guess they add a bit of green, and are so easy to grow. A bit too easy to grow perhaps!
Finally, the magnolia blooms are almost at an end. We had a fantastic display this year, so no complaints there. I took this photo standing on the back porch, hiding from the rain.
As usual, I am looking forward to seeing everyone’s beautiful gardens in other parts of the world.
