My Diary

Diary Entry-18/04/2017- Planting, Digging and Puffing!

I’ve been on my half-term break from work this week, so I decided to use my time wisely and tackle the mess that is my garden.

Much better! – I was completely frazzled after digging this, though
A sight for sore eyes

I’ve neglected it in the past few years and I do regret it. I love sitting in the garden on a sunny day, as I am an out-doorsy type of girl, and a plethora of pretty blooms to gaze upon has been sadly lacking.

I addressed the problem yesterday by getting stuck in and cleaning up my garden. My climbing rose bush was the first job. After 3 years’ growth, trimming wasn’t really an option – the whole bush had to go, but maintenance will now be much easier, and the area now has a much cleaner look, too. I then dug over the soil (with a break every 10 minutes – it was such hard work!), went to buy some pots, compost and bedding plants, then┬áspent the remainder of today doing the nice bit┬áby filling my pots and sorting my flowers into pretty little arrangements.

Lavender, pansies, geraniums and petunias, with a bush on the right whose name evades me…

I know I’m a complete novice where gardening is concerned, but I’ve really enjoyed myself,┬á knowing that I’ll soon have the┬ápleasure of sitting in my garden on a hot summer’s day, taking delight in all my hard work :-))

 

Voila!
